what makes an urban area legitimate?

Level 89
Sep 1, 2021
The United States Census Bureau defines Urbanized Areas, Metropolitan Statistical Areas, and Combined Statistical Areas.

Urbanized Areas are just that.

MSAs are rather random areas based strictly on counties, whether the county is 600 square kilometers of surrounding populace or 50,000 square kilometers. It may also contain other Urbanized Areas and Urban Clusters (population 5,000 to 49,999) that are geographically remote from the Urbanized Area giving its name to the MSA. It can contain urban population directly part of another Urbanized Area with its own MSA.

These statistics are from the Consolidated Statistical Areas, which are just large market and broadcast areas combining multiple county based MSAs.

The legitimate, official U.S. Census Bureau populations of the Urbanized Areas are:

Stockton: 370,583

Harrisburg: 444,474

Yes, but seeing as this quiz features no cities on Jeju island, I don't think it really matters. However, the island that the city of Naha is located on (Okinawa Island) is missing from the map. I could draw it out but it would be trivial as it would be too small (the city dot itself would occupy more area than the island on the map) so most people wouldn't notice it.
