I think the statistics is wrong because there is no space for TOKYO in the Top 10 List. I can not agree with this

This list is most definetly wrong as there is infact 20+ megacities in the world. (Megacities being a city with more than 10 million people in it)

This list is probably just the actual inner city residents, not the whole metropolitan area and suburbs that make up the cities region. There are alot of cities near and well over 20 mill in metro population especially in Asia.
