    Mine is almost 600,000 in the city, but over a million if you count the surrounding suburbs.

    My city has a population of 150,000 people but I don’t feel that really represents the size of the town I grew up in. I’m in a suburb of “the greater Los Angeles Area” and actually live 5-15 minutes away from about 5 other cities. 

    A more correct answer would have been “500,000-1,000,000” 🙂

    ETA: My city is only 20 square miles, we are very densely populated, haha.

    I grew up in a township (so outside the city limits) on a 50+ acre little farm.  The nearest “city” had less than 1000 people.

    I moved around a lot, so I could answer with all of the poll options for some point in my life, haha. The last town we lived at while I still lived with my parents was about 95,000 people.

    Currently my hometown has a population > 1 million.  But when I was growing up there, it was hovering around 900,000.

    The town I grew up in had about 30k people. The city I live in now has about 1.5 million.

    I grew up in a small town in Iowa — about 2,000 people!  We shared a high school with 2 other (even smaller) towns! 🙂

    Wow, I thought more people would be from places with more people!  Mine hometown had about 75 000.  I now live in a city with about 1 million.
