Great Buenos Aires
Buenos Aires
(Spanish: Gran Buenos Aires, GBA), Buenos Aires Metropolitan Area or Buenos Aires
Buenos Aires
Metropolitan Region refers to the urban agglomeration comprising the autonomous city of Buenos Aires
Buenos Aires
and the adjacent 24 partidos (districts) over the Province of Buenos Aires. Thus, it does not constitute a single administrative unit. The conurbation spreads south, west and north of Buenos Aires
Buenos Aires
city. To the east, the River Plate serves as a natural boundary. Urban sprawl, especially between 1945 and 1980, created a vast conurbation of 9,910,282 inhabitants in the 24 conurbated partidos, as of 2010, and a total of 12,801,365 including the City of Buenos Aires, a third of the total population of Argentina
and generating more than half of the country's GDP.

History[edit] The term Gran Buenos Aires
Buenos Aires
("Greater Buenos Aires") was first officially used in 1948, when Governor of Buenos Aires
Buenos Aires
Province Domingo Mercante
Domingo Mercante
signed a bill delineating as such an area covering 14 municipalities surrounding the City of Buenos Aires.[2] The term is also related to other expressions that are not necessarily well-defined: the "Buenos Aires' conurbation" (Conurbano Bonaerense), the "Greater Buenos Aires
Buenos Aires
Agglomeration" (Aglomerado Gran Buenos Aires), and the "Metropolitan Area of Buenos Aires" (Área Metropolitana Buenos Aires, AMBA). Definition[edit]

The National Institute of Statistics and Censuses (INDEC) has defined Greater Buenos Aires.[3] There are three main groups within the Buenos Aires' 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.

Fourteen fully urbanized partidos

Avellaneda General San Martín Hurlingham Ituzaingó José C. Paz Lanús Lomas de Zamora Malvinas Argentinas Morón Quilmes San Isidro San Miguel Tres de Febrero Vicente López

Ten partidos partially urbanized

Almirante Brown Berazategui Esteban Echeverría Ezeiza Florencio Varela La Matanza Merlo Moreno San Fernando Tigre

Six partidos not yet conurbated

As urbanization continues and the conurbation grows, six additional partially urbanized partidos now are fully connected with the conurbation:
