City limits is surely the dominant representation method in Europe. Why would you invent a completly new and more or less arbitrary measurement like "Metro area", when you could just use proper city limits and then stack them together as needed?
An outsider, like me in Canada, will look at Los Angeles and be like, oh that's all the same. But then meet somebody that says, I am not from LA, I am from Anaheim... Long Beach...Inglewood... Compton...
Jersey City: 286,670 (not 262,075)
St. Louis: 286,578 (not 300,576)
Could explain the city order.
