Population Bracketology from the US Census Bureau

Think you know which states or cities have the most people living in them ? Test your knowledge of population data! The Census Bureau has put together its own version of March Madness with a Population Bracket for either states or cities. Click here to go to the Bureau's website and give it a shot.

Start by choosing your geographic level: metro areas or states. Click on the name in each match-up that you think has the larger population. Green shows a correct answer, red indicates an incorrect answer. When you have opposing names picked for the next round, pick again. See how close you can come to a perfect score of 63. When you are finished, play again or mouse-over results to view the most current population estimates for each pair.
