Is your mind a road map of America's great cities? The United States of America has a population of over 325 million people. It is the third most populous country on earth, following China and India. In this large country, the vast majority of people live in major cities. Whether it's the East Coast, the West Coast or somewhere in the middle, about 80% of all Americans work and live in urban areas, or in suburbs directly surrounding them. This is where it is easiest to find work, which is what attracts many Americans from rural areas. In fact, the overall population in urban areas is rising, while that in rural areas has fallen.
Despite not being as densely populated or large in area as other cities in the Americas or Eurasia, many American cities are global icons that have had a huge influence on the world. When it comes to finance, tech, art, media and culture, many American cities have set global standards for decades. Some of these places are even currently on the cutting edge. All across this country are massive centers of art, medicine, commerce, food and more.
