This article investigates patterns of residential and nonresidential land use in an array of extended urban areas, in the United States, using four measures: intensity, compactness, mixing, and core-dominance. Bivariate statistics demonstrates that geographic, historic, economic, demographic, and transport variables differentiate land use pattern types. Based on their multidimensional distinctions, this research labels the four types of metropolitan areas: Ascendants, Insulars, Redevelopers, and Cosmopolitans
