Texas is the second most populous state in the country, with a population that tops 28 million residents. Given this staggering number, it is no surprise that this state has three cities with populations of more than 1 million. Houston is the most populous city, with a population of 2.2 million, followed by San Antonio with a population of 1.4 million and Dallas with a population count of 1.3 million. These aren’t the only big cities that this large state has to offer, as there are 34 cities with populations of at least 100,000 (but fewer than one million.) There are 163 additional cities that have populations of over 10,000.

There is a total of 961 cities throughout the state. These states are either designated as general law or home rule cities. General law cities have limited powers that are granted by the laws of the state. Any city that has a population of more than 5,000 can petition for home rule status, which offers more government flexibility. While there are villages and towns that are named as such by the cities themselves, these are not officially recognized by the state, which classifies all incorporated areas as cities.

Texas has 3 cities with more than a million people, 36 cities with between 100,000 and 1 million people, and 197 cities with between 10,000 and 100,000 people. The largest city in Texas is Houston , with a population of 2,340,814 people.
