Most populous cities

This is a list of cities in Mexico by fixed population, according to the 2010 Mexican national census.[1]

Note that Veracruz and Naucalpan are cities whose area is divided between two municipalities; the list gives the population of each part of the city separately. Note also that Mexico City contains all of the Federal District's area, including rural areas with relatively small populations. The Federal District's population, according to the localities in its boroughs, is 8,810,393 urban (99.54%) and 40,687 rural (0.46%). All other localities are officially classified as solely urban by the Instituto Nacional de Estadística y Geografía (INEGI). All of the map links are of the same scale.
