List of cities in Mongolia

This is a list of cities in Mongolia.

The following table includes cities of more than 7,500 inhabitants. The results are from the census of January 5, 2000 as well as from a population estimation for the end of 2008. If 2008 year data was not accessible, the closest and most reliable data was used and noted by an index.

The population for previous years show the historical significance of population growth and urbanisation throughout Mongolia.

Population dataEdit

The higher level administrative unit is the aimag, except for Ulaanbaatar which administrates its own federal district (Nalaikh and Baganuur are administrated by Ulaanbaatar. The numbers of inhabitants relate to the cities proper without surrounding districts.)
