List of cities in the Philippines

Last updated

The following is a list of chartered cities in the Philippines. Philippine cities are classified into three groups: highly urbanized cities (HUC), independent component cities (ICC), and component cities (CC).

Contents

Classes

Highly urbanized cities are local government units autonomous from provinces that have a minimum population of 200,000 and an annual income of at least 50 million (in 1991 constant prices). Independent Component Cities are cities outside of provincial jurisdiction (although some are allowed to participate in the election of provincial officials) that have not yet attained the 'highly urbanized' status, while Component Cities are those under a province's jurisdiction. [1] In addition, each city is classified into six income brackets according to income in a four-year period. For instance, First-class cities have an income of 400 million or more, while Sixth-class cities earn less than 80 million in a four-year period.

Each city is governed by both the Local Government Code of 1991 [2] and the city's own municipal charter, under the laws of the Republic of the Philippines.
