U.S. Cities Database

The SQL file has 29.880 registered cities. All cities are located in the United States.

The SQL file contains two tables:

  • US_STATES: ID, STATE_CODE and STATE_NAME.

  • US_CITIES: ID, ID_STATE, CITY, COUNTY, LATITUDE and LONGITUDE.

The US_CITIES table has all (or almost all) cities from the United States.
