The Chicago metropolitan area, also colloquially referred to as Chicagoland, is a major urban area in the Midwestern United States that is one of the forty largest in the world. Encompassing 10,286 sq mi (28,120 km2), the metropolitan area includes the city of Chicago (3rd most populous city in the United States), and its suburbs, spanning, by the US Census definition, 16 counties in northeast Illinois, southeast Wisconsin, and northwest Indiana. The MSA had a 2020 population of 9.7 million people and the CSA was estimated at nearly 10 million people. The Chicago area is the third-largest metropolitan area and the third-largest Combined Statistical Area in the United States, as well as the fourth-largest metropolitan area in North America, and the largest metropolitan area within the Great Lakes megalopolis. - Wikipedia
