Census-designated places on the list[edit]

Note 1: The only incorporated place in Hawaii is the City & County of Honolulu. A portion of it, the Honolulu District, is sometimes regarded as the "city" for statistical purposes, although it has no government separate from that of the City and County as a whole. The U.S. Census Bureau defines Honolulu CDP (census-designated place) to coincide with the Honolulu District. Thus for Hawaii, the largest CDPs are ranked.

Though Maryland has a number of incorporated places, most major population centers are census-designated places. For a list of incorporated places, see List of incorporated places in Maryland.
