I grew up in a town with a population of only 1400 people (when we moved there it was only 1100), and now live in the biggest city in Canada, with a population of close to 3 million… right around 10% of the entire population of Canada. LOL.

I can’t believe the upper limit for the poll is 1 million. Seoul has over 10 million people, not counting the greater metropolitan area. I lived in Chicago for two years for grad school(2.7 million) and it was a restful change!

The town where my SO and I live, which will be my permanent home, has just over 1300 people.
However, for now I live part-time in a small city for graduate school– the population here is about 24,000.
Seems like most bees live in a somewhat urban area. Interesting bias to the population on here, in that case! I’ve often wondered about this myself, since it does sound like a lot of people on here live in larger towns or cities.

I grew up in a town of 2,000 next to a town of 50,000. Now I live in Chicago, which is about 3 million in the city and 8 milllion in the area – “Chicagoland” as they call it.

Madrid has a population of around 6.5 million people within its metropolitan area. The municipality in which I live has +70,000 inhabitans.

@jadlnc: Ya, I’m basically over here going, “Hey, we have a Wal-Mart!” If you want to go to a mall it’s an hour drive at the very least. There’s fast food and things like that, but for clothes and other things not much. I just want a Target, is that too much to ask for?? Haha

I actually had to look it up. According to the city of Omaha website, we are the 42nd largest city in the nation with a population of 427,872. Apparently the metro area has a population of 888,859.
This is actually the largest city I’ve ever lived in. I grew up in a city of only about 50,000. So tiny!

I live in small town Wisconsin. I think the population right now is in the 900s. My graduating class was about 40 people. I love it!! 🙂

I think it would be interesting to see how big the cities are as well. For example I lived right on the border of two cities.
One has a population of 60,000 and one had 600,000. However, the density per square mile was fairly similar.
