It just dawned on me as I make yet another county map of the US that I don't think I've ever lived in a county with less than 100,000 people in it. Sooooo what types of areas have you lived in? And maybe what's your average?

Warren, NJ - 108,692
Passaic, NJ (briefly) - 501,226
Somerset, NJ - 323,444
Alamance, NC - 151,131
Philadelphia, PA - 1,526,006

Average - 522,100

Lived in Ottawa my whole life.

When I was born, the city had about 600,000 (current borders). Today there is about 900,000 people.  I also briefly lived in Whistler, BC (2 months). It has 10,000.

I have lived in 3 neighbourhoods in Ottawa:

Riverview (12,000 people)
Centretown (21,000 people)
Centretown West (11,000 people)

My earlier comment notwithstanding, I do think that the site would be better off if Inks left his position. (The fact that the village idiot has dropped in to express his support for him only confirms this.)

Mostly rural. I've spent almost all of my life in Jefferson, NY, one of the fastest growing counties in the state on account of the military base. Weird place.

Schenectady, NY - 150,000
Saratoga, NY - 220,000
Herkimer, NY - 60,000
Monroe, NY - 730,000

I have always lived in small towns as I have always lived in Iowa. I have stayed out of Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Sioux City and Davenport except for job interviews and even when I was offered a teaching position in one of the school districts I turned it down. The Davenport School System is terrible and Des Moines, while the schools work well, is simply a confusing mass of people and not at all appealing to the eye.

I was born in Walcott, Iowa, with a population of less than 2,000. I lived in Durant, Iowa, for my first twelve years of life, and that town has less than 2,000 people. When I was twelve I had to move to Washington, Iowa, a town of a little over 7,000 people, and attended college in Cedar Falls, Iowa, a town with a population of about 40,000 folks.

My first job in special education was in Oelwein, Iowa, a little meth addicted town of 6,400. Needless to say I moved away from that town after the school year ended and wound up in an even more drug addicted town: Creston, Iowa, population 7,500. The principal at the middle school was a cool, former truck driver with a PhD. who loved guns, women and coming his handlebar mustache. I would have stayed in that town for the rest of my life had the BD department not been eliminated.

From Creston I applied for a job in Des Moines and was hired to teach at an alternative school. I decided to say no to that job and wound up in my new home town. Mason City, Iowa, is the home of big band man and musical maestro Meredith Wilson and also to 28,700 Iowans. Well, there is nothing half way about the Iowa way we treat you because I have chosen to stay in this town.

Haven't checked the boards for a while, so I'm late.  But I thought it would be interesting anyway.  These are dated population figures, of course, and likely differ from when I lived in each place.  But, here 'goes.

Dickinson, North Dakota             17,787 (2010)                 
Grand Forks, North Dakota         52.838 (2010)                 
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania     1,526,006 (2010)                 
Glenside, Pennsylvania                 8,384 (2010)
Tuebingen, Germany                  82,885 (2002)                 
Tokyo, Japan                         8,653,000 (2007-estimate)
Evanston, Illinois                        74,486 (2010)                     
Carbondale, Illinois                     25,902 (2010)
Halifax, Nova Scotia                  359,183 (2011)

Average:  1,200,052

It never ceases to amaze me how Tokyo continues to throw things in my life way, way off...  Smiley  Had it not been on the list, the average population of cities I've lived in would be 268,434.  Of course, given the fact that the Shinjuku train station in downtown Tokyo sees approximately (by very rough estimates) 3.3 million people enter and exit per day, I guess this skewing of averages is understandable, at least...

Hey professor, the question was about "counties."  Tongue  But one on your list is "correct" anyway. Smiley

Sioux, ND: 4,153

Blue Earth, MN: 64,013
Hennepin, MN: 1,152,425

Average is 324,474, which of course reflects none of them at all. Great example of the misleading average.
