Largest City in Every State

Since 1950, the population of the United States has more than doubled to about 327 million people, making America the third-most populous nation on Earth.

As the U.S. population climbed through births and immigration, trends emerged that fit the era. Much of the increase has been in the suburbs throughout the latter part of the 20th century, as families and immigrants climbing the income ladder moved from the city to less densely populated areas in the suburbs.

Even so, many of America’s largest cities have participated in this national population surge, and that is why 24/7 Wall St. has compiled a list of the largest city in every state, using figures obtained from the U.S. Census Bureau.
