Population is 10.17 million as of 2015.
California has a higher population than Canada.
Wow, this is really eyeopening. I knew LA had a huge population but I thought states like Georgia with ATL or Washington with Seattle and Denver in Colorado would offset the rural towns and be bigger than a single county. I guess not any other states have multiple metropolitan areas besides the grey ones
California is roughly the size of Sweden. Sweden has 10 million inhabitants. Los Angeles is like if all of Sweden lived in Stockholm.
Georgia’s population estimate is sitting currently just shy of 10.5 million.
Map would be better if it were a gradient to show relatively how much smaller the population is
The crazy thing is that pretty much everyone is in the southern HALF of the county.
The northern half is sparsely populated mountains and desert.
Somewhat interesting fact: each of NYC's five boroughs comprise their own counties with Kings County (Brooklyn) being 8th largest in the US.
