Just a game note: Relating to the URL, Wyoming, Michigan was close to making the list, and is in fact larger than Cheyenne.

Why cant we know what we missed? I really dislike getting ???'s at the end of a game.
Sep 2nd, 2011 at 12:10 GMT
Uh, Clinton, Michigan isn't a city.
Comment below threshold:

Also, Cary, North Carolina isn't a city. And, many of the populations are not correct. Most are from the 2010 Census, but quite a few are not - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Altoona, Pennsylvania, and all cities in Ohio have old populations listed.
Sep 2nd, 2011 at 12:56 GMT
Clinton is debatable, but Cary, NC is definitely a city. As for the populations, I will fix those.
Sep 2nd, 2011 at 13:41 GMT
By the way, let me know if the time is adequate.
Sep 2nd, 2011 at 14:42 GMT
I wouldn't call Clinton debatable since it is a township. And Cary is a town, as stated right on their website (in the URL, in fact).
Oct 24th, 2011 at 18:05 GMT
Great quiz. I can't believe I forgot Lorain - it's in the county next to me.
Oct 26th, 2011 at 21:19 GMT
Cary is a city and Clinton is a township, but they are both municipalities of the state so I agree that they should be on the quiz (though possibly a note should be added saying that all types of municipalities are on the quiz). Excellent quiz.
Oct 29th, 2011 at 11:43 GMT
@someonerandom: If all municipalities were included, then the Pennsylvania list would be quite different (speaking as a native Pennsylvanian), as many townships that comprise the Philly suburbs would have to be added: Lower Merion Twp= 57,201; Abington Twp= 55,649; Bensalem Twp= 57,611; Bristol Twp= 57,689; Haverford Twp= 49,605; Upper Darby Twp= 79,422.

Well, you can choose two different readings of "cities". One is to read it as "municipalities", for which those PA townships need to be added. Another one is to read it as "places", a census definition that includes only those municipalities they consider to be a place as well and some unincorporated communities as CDPs. Clinton, MI is a place (CDP) as well, but so is Levittown, PA (52,983)

Is it unhealthy that I got all of Ohio's cities, yet I live in New York?
Nov 29th, 2011 at 01:17 GMT
@bigwilly5252 yes, yes it is.

2010 Census data says Troy is the 10th largest city in Michigan not Clinton (which isn't a city).
Dec 21st, 2011 at 20:22 GMT
im glad i border georgia and north carolina or else i would have had an extremely unimpressive score. can't wait for states 20-25!
Dec 21st, 2011 at 20:29 GMT
Clearly only about 50% of Sporclers are fans of The Office, at most.
Dec 21st, 2011 at 21:31 GMT
I live in Athens, GA. I did not type Athens, GA. Only on Sporcle.

As mentioned by msubri, Clinton (Michigan) is not a city. It's a charter township and is technically unincorporated.
Dec 21st, 2011 at 21:34 GMT
I was overly excited when I got two for Columbus.
Dec 21st, 2011 at 21:45 GMT
Thanks, Columbus, for a free point!
Dec 21st, 2011 at 22:52 GMT
I live in one of these and didn't get it.
Dec 21st, 2011 at 23:23 GMT
As a Michigander, I hate all things Ohio. Having said that I got 8 in Ohio to only 7 in Michigan. I am ashamed.
Dec 22nd, 2011 at 00:03 GMT
lorain county represent!

I made this account just so I could say how happy I am to see Parma in a published quiz. First and last time I'll ever see that.
Dec 22nd, 2011 at 01:16 GMT
I didn't know there is a Roswell, Georgia. According to the stats, over 96% of the players didn't either. Seemingly the idea of making an UFO crash near the city to make it widely known originated earlier in other state.
Dec 22nd, 2011 at 03:08 GMT
I lived in Roswell, GA from ages 6 months to 13 years old. It is a lovely town. Great place to raise kids in suburbia too.
Dec 22nd, 2011 at 03:57 GMT
im still waiting for the least populous cities in the least populous states quiz. Epic.
Dec 23rd, 2011 at 01:54 GMT
i live in michigan and clinton township isn't a city. it shouldn't be on the list
Dec 29th, 2011 at 17:36 GMT
The one time it's good to be from Parma, OH...thanks, Sporcle, for validating my existence.

I live in Kalamazoo, and I typed it because I was told by my friend that it has more people than Ann Arbor. I was confused when it wasn't on there, then looked up Kalamazoo on Wikipedia and found out that my friend was just being stupid.
Feb 9th, 2012 at 01:54 GMT
I can't believe even 12 % got Altoona, PA. I thought it would be last.
