As of 2005, there are 39 independent cities, which are considered county-equivalents for census purposes. Many towns are as large as cities, but are not incorporated as cities and are situated within a parent county or counties. For a complete list of these towns, see List of towns in Virginia. For major unincorporated population centers, see List of unincorporated towns in Virginia.
Note that the map in this article, taken from the official United States Census Bureau site, includes Clifton Forge as an independent city. This reflected the political reality at the time of the most recent United States Census, taken in 2000. However, in 2001, Clifton Forge relinquished its city charter and reincorporated as a town in Alleghany County.
