I don't at all understand the small whole numbers and percentages for very urban downtown Chicago, NYC, etc.

And Providence is #8 on the list although the #4 population city at the time, Detroit, and #7, St. Louis, are completely missing.

I'm still perplexed by what, for example, the population of 431 represents for urban Baltimore or its downtown and what does 15.9% mean? Of what?

Same comment as FiloSora, it didn't say anywhere that it was only American cities. I wondered why Tokyo, London and Moscow were excluded...

No idea it was about USA only, terrible writing (What cities had the most urban living?? ?WTF), who calls it New York City instead of New York?
