Population Quizzes

Whether it's the most populous countries quiz or just the cities of California population quiz, Sporcle is like the US Census with a stopwatch. Our timed quizzes will test your mettle like a grizzled Census-taker making the rounds. One of our most popular quizzes is about the biggest countries that are the most populated, as well as the US Cities with the most people. For those who love history, we also feature Historical City Populations, as well as estimated populations in 2050. No matter which type of population quizzes you like, the best way to find out about the world is finding out about the people in it.
