Largest cities

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

Note that both Veracruz and Naucalpan cross municipal lines (are each located in two different municipalities). Note also that Mexico City contains all of the Distrito Federal's area, including rural areas with relatively minor populations. The Distrito Federal's population is classified (by localities within its boroughs) as 8,810,393 urban (99.54%) and 40,687 rural (0.46%). All other localities are officially classified as solely urban by Instituto Nacional de Estadística y Geografía (INEGI). All of the map links are at the same scale.
