Numbers are taken from the United States Census Bureau and reflect the population of the home city only, not suburban communities that make up the metro or megapolitan area.

Cities also designate what makes the city proper differently, that is what leads to some weird population numbers.

Toronto's population was taken from the Toronto wikipedia page.
