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.

Note 2: As of September 2005, New Orleans is evacuated due to the effects of Hurricane Katrina. Many of the city's residents have re-located to Baton Rouge at least temporarily.

For U.S. Territories, the largest CDPs (Guam); CDPs or towns (U.S. Virgin Islands); municipios (Puerto Rico); municipalities (Northern Mariana Islands); and villages (American Samoa) are ranked.
