Greater Buenos Aires (Gran Buenos Aires, GBA, in Spanish) is the generic denomination to refer to the megalopolis comprised by the autonomous city of Buenos Airesmarker and the conurbation around it over the province of Buenos Airesmarker—namely the adjacent 24 partidos or municipalities—which nonetheless do not constitute a single administrative unit. The conurbation spreads to the south, west and north of Buenos Aires; to the east the River Platemarker serves as a natural boundary.

The term "Greater Buenos Aires" is related with other expressions not necessarily well-defined: the "Buenos Aires' conurbation" (Conurbano Bonaerense), the "Greater Buenos Aires Agglomeration" (Aglomerado Gran Buenos Aires), and the "Metropolitan Area of Buenos Aires" (Área Metropolitana Buenos Aires, AMBA).

Definition

Greater Buenos Aires
The National Institute of Statistics and Censuses (Instituto Nacional de Estadística y Censos), INDEC, has defined Greater Buenos Aires to be comprised by:

Fourteen fully urbanized partidos

There are three main groups within the Buenos Aires' Conurbation:

Ten partidos partially urbanized



Six additional partidos not yet conurbated

As urbanization continues and the conurbation grows, six additional partially urbanized partidos now are fully connected with the conurbation: The first two groups (24 partidos) comprise the traditional conurbation, or the "conurbation proper". The third group of six partidos is in process of becoming fully integrated with the rest.

Urban sprawl, especially in the years from 1945 to 1980, created a vast conurbation which, as of 2000, had 9,270,661 inhabitants in the above-mentioned partidos and a total of 12,766,002 including the city of Buenos Aires proper.
