I am looking for a current, global vector dataset of metropolitan areas. The US Census Bureau has what I am after, though only for the USA. I also see that Natural Earth has an Urban Areas dataset, yet this is based of fairly old data for my purposes (2002-2003).

Is there a generally accepted global dataset of metropolitan areas similar to the linked US Census data, or will I need to piece together multiple datasets?
