    Do you know your city's population? Any other comments about that? Any fun facts?

    In 2012, mine was 170,746. My city isn't huge (about 40 sq miles). It's strange to me how I never run into people I know as I'm going about my days and I know some of them still live here. You'd think I'd run into someone, but not nearly as often as you may think. The last time was about 2 yrs ago. By the way, as of July of this year, the unemployment rate is 7%.

    My home village's population is 430.

    I actually now work in a town with a population around 3,500. It about drives me crazy that it takes me over 10 minutes to drive through town to get to work. Too many people!

    To give you some idea of the demographics-in my county, there are 7 villages, and the 1 town. The largest village is around 580, smallest around 65. But the population of the county is 11,000. So well over half of the population live in rural areas. We're considered a rather large, populated county. There are some in the west that the county seat is a town of about 50, and the whole county is around 400.

    The population of my city is just over 80 000. When we moved here in 1992, it was just over 48 000, so there has been a lot of growth!

    The county I live in has: 102,323
    The City I live in has: 82,719

    I still find it funny when someone comes up to me and we're talking about where I grew up and they don't understand how I don't think that this is a big area. This is what it is compared to:

    Long Island: 7.568 million
    County I grew up in: 1.349 million
    Town I grew up in: 18,871

    My city's population in 2012 was about 246,000, but my city is very closely linked with a few other cities and generally seen by the outside as a joined area with a total population of 1.7 million.

    The population of the City of Miami (proper) is only 413,890, however when most people refer to "Miami", they're really referring to the sprawling area of Miami-Dade County (even tv shows and movies that are supposedly set in Miami are almost never in the city itself, but on the beach and other areas of the county). The city itself is actually quite tiny geographically. The county population is 2,591,035.

    About 500 in the town we are associated with. I drive 10 miles to the "big" town of 20,000. I do live close to Portland with a couple hundred thousand people. We avoid the big city as much as possible. That is why we live on a rural road.

    My city has about 140,000. It's too big.

    I grew up in a town of less than 3,000. That was too small (though I do really appreciate my small town childhood...I just don't think I could go back to it).

    When we settle down, I would like to find a happy medium. :D

    In San Antonio proper, it's something like 1.3 million. In the greater metro area, 2.2 million.
