The Distrito Federal's population is classified (by localities within its boroughs) as 8,810,393 urban (99.54%) and 40,687 rural (0.46%). All other localities are officially classified as solely urban by Instituto Nacional de Estadística y Geografía (INEGI). All of the map links are at the same scale.
