Only incorporated places of at least 20,000 people are listed. Note that many unincorporated places would have even fewer people working there relative to the number of workers living there because there are fewer services provided than in incorporated places. An extreme example is an unincorporated "Census Designated Place" called Chesapeake Ranch Estates-Drum Point, Maryland (population 11,000) where there are only 5 people working in town for every 100 resident workers.

Source of Data: 2000 U.S. Census.
