Urbanized areas in the United States are defined by the U.S. Census Bureau as contiguous census block groups with a population density of at least 1,000 per square mile (about 400 per square km). Urban areas are delineated without regard to political boundaries. Urban areas with a population of at least 50,000 serve as the core of a metropolitan statistical area.List of Preserve America Communities
This is a list of United States municipalities, counties, neighborhoods, and tribal communities that have been designated as "Preserve America Communities" under the federal government's Preserve America program.

The following is a list of communities in the United States where English is not the majority language spoken at home according to data from the 2000 Census.List of United States urban areas
This is a list of urban areas in the United States as defined by the United States Census Bureau, ordered according to their 2010 census populations. In the table, UA refers to "urbanized area" (urban areas with population over 50,000) and UC refers to "urban cluster" (urban areas with population less than 50,000). The list includes urban areas with a population of at least 50,000.
For the 2010 census, the Census Bureau redefined the classification of urban areas to "a densely settled core of census tracts and/or census blocks that meet minimum population density requirements, along with adjacent territory containing non-residential urban land uses as well as territory with low population density included to link outlying densely settled territory with the densely settled core. To qualify as an urban area, the territory identified according to criteria must encompass at least 2,500 people, at least 1,500 of which reside outside institutional group quarters." These criteria result in several large urban agglomerations that encompass multiple urban areas from the 2000 census. The Census Bureau is currently considering whether to split up the larger agglomerations, but published potential agglomerations in August 2010.List of cities and unincorporated communities in Oregon
This list of cities and unincorporated communities in the U.S. state of Oregon includes all incorporated cities and many unincorporated communities, arranged in alphabetical order. Unincorporated communities are identified with italic type.
Cities are the only form of municipal government incorporated in Oregon. While villages and hamlets exist in Oregon, they are created by Clackamas County only, and do not resemble municipalities due to the limited nature of their powers and their lack of home-rule charters.This list does not distinguish villages, hamlets, and other forms of local organization in Oregon; they are shown below as unincorporated communities and are shown in italics. In addition, some formerly freestanding communities have been partially or wholly subsumed by neighboring cities or abandoned and turned into ghost towns; these also are represented in italics but are marked an asterisk (*) to distinguish them from unincorporated communities.List of communities on the Navajo Nation

The municipalities of Puerto Rico number seventy-eight incorporated towns and cities. Each municipality is led by a mayor and divided into barrios, though the latter are not vested with any political authority. Every municipality is governed by the Autonomous Municipalities Act of 1991 which establishes that every municipality must have a strong mayor with a municipal legislature. Furthermore, each legislature must be unicameral with its number of members varying according to the municipality's population. And, in contrast to other jurisdictions, both the mayors and the municipal legislators are elected on the same date for the same period of time.
From an urban design perspective, several differences and similarities exist between the municipalities. For instance, municipalities with 50,000 inhabitants or more are considered incorporated cities, while those with fewer than 50,000 are considered incorporated towns. An additional difference between the two is the amount of autonomy each municipality has, with cities provisioning their own services while towns typically depend on nearby cities for certain services. Regardless of this differentiation, all municipalities have a barrio called pueblo proper (English: 'town') which typically hosts that municipality's original Spanish settlement and is also typically that municipality's urban core. Municipalities with large populations, however, may have an urban core that consist of several barrios.
Other differences exist among the municipalities. Economic activity, for example, concentrates on the metropolitan areas surrounding the cities of San Juan, Ponce, Arecibo, Caguas, Mayaguez, Aguadilla, and Humacao, with most towns being commuter towns. Statistically, the municipality with the largest number of inhabitants is San Juan with around 400,000 while Culebra is the smallest with around 1,800. While in terms of territorial extension, Arecibo is the largest with around 125 mi2 and Cataño the smallest with around 4.8 mi2.Villages of Guam
The United States territory of Guam is divided into nineteen municipalities, called villages. Each village is governed by an elected mayor. Village populations range in size from under 1,000 to over 40,000. As of the 2000 census, the total population of Guam was 154,805. However, the entire island is counted as a single county equivalent by the United States Census Bureau for statistical purposes.
