Of the counties you have lived in, which one had the largest and which had the smallest population?

For me, largest was King County, Washington., now 2-million but then 750,000.

Smallest, Brown County Kansas, 9,900. Three others with under 20,000: Dent MO, Madison FL, Leelanau MI.

Maricopa AZ
San Diego CA
Hennepin MN

Kent MI

After creating this list I feel like a transient Gypsy.

Smallest would be the county I grew up in while living in Iowa.

When my family moved there in 1950 it had 45,000, in 1980 when I was born it had around 80,000 people and today it has around 142,000.

Largest would be Cook County where I am now, with like 5,200,000.

Going by the 2014 Census estimates, the largest I've lived in is Mecklenburg County, NC. The smallest is my home county, Orangeburg County, SC.

Largest would be Middlesex County (MA) at 1.55 million people.

Smallest would be Arlington County (VA) at 229 thousand people.

I'm a city boy!

Also lived in Milwaukee County (WI) with 956 thousand people, and Hennepin County (MN) with 1.2 million people.
