California is definitely the leader in terms of urban density for the US. Chicago just missed out on being in the top 10 at 3,400 ppsm.
1. Los Angeles, CA = 6,000 ppsm
2. San Francisco-San Jose, CA = 5,300 ppsm
3. Honolulu, HI = 4,700 ppsm
4. Las Vegas, NV & New York, NY = 4,500 ppsm (tie)
5. Miami, FL = 4,400 ppsm
6. San Diego, CA = 4,000 ppsm
7. Bakersfield, CA & Fresno, CA = 3,800 ppsm (tie)
8. Sacramento, CA = 3,700 ppsm
9. Denver, CO & New Orleans, LA = 3,600 ppsm (tie)
10. Portland, OR & Washington, DC = 3,500 ppsm (tie)
By that measure Toronto urban area has 7,590 ppsm. Hamilton next door is 7,776 ppsm. What constitutes an urban area must be quite liberal in the US or Toronto's is quite limited. New York at 4,500 ppsm? It doesn't seem to be a useful measure for the purpose of your argument.
Urban area: 676.25 sq mi
Pop. density: 7,590 ppsm
Urban area: 87.92 sq mi
Pop. density: 7,776 ppsm
