City populations

Must have been bored today.
Started looking at then got to....

Different ways of counting city population....:

: Manchester is 7th largest area with 3.8 mill people.

Largest_European_metropolitan_areas: Manchester is 11th with 4.2 mill people. However in the Manchester City itself is only 440,000 (but that does not include Salford, Oldham, Trafford, Sale, etc).

Larger_Urban_Zones_(LUZ)_in_the_European_Union: Manchester is 14th with 2.8 mill people. The scousers keep interfering in the others, but this is perhaps the proper size of Manchester.

Ps. Looking at it differently Oslo is Europe's fifth largest city!
