The largest urban agglomeration in Pennsylvania was formed around Philadelphia. Here, in the so-called “Delaware Valley”, about 6,000,000 people live (together with the population of the adjacent settlements of the states of New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland). The Philadelphia metropolitan area ranks fifth on the list of U.S. metropolitan areas).

Other large Pennsylvania urban clusters have formed around Pittsburgh (more than 2,350,000 people), Allentown (more than 820,000 people), Scranton (“Wyoming Valley”, more than 560,000 people) and Harrisburg (about 550,000 people).
