You have to love Wikipedia. Here is a list of US state capitals. If you want to know the populations you have to click further.

I'm going for Phoenix, Arizona, which is claimed to be the 6th largest city in the US, at 1,321,045, which surprised me. I think we should be careful not to confuse the population of the city with the size of the metropolitan statistical area, which is a lot bigger.

I shall pick (surprise!) Florida. The capital is Tallahassee, and the population is 156,512, unless you want the metro area, then that population is about 255,500.

The name Florida means "flowery", or as I was taught, "land of flowers". (We have lots of them.) Tallahassee is a Muskogean Indian word (a language of the Seminole tribe) often translated as "old fields," or "old town."

If you would travel to Tallahassee from my house, you'd have to drive more than seven hours, 395 miles...a fer piece.

If anyone's interested, I'd be glad to tell you all about the wonderful State which I call home! [Big Grin]

I just had to go for the State of Georgia, whose capital city had a population of 425,000 when they last counted, though I'm sure they missed one or two. It's been known as the Pheonix city and "the city too busy to hate" as well as "The New York of the South". In 2004 it was dubbed the third most dangerous city in America!!! [Eek!]

For all that, it's named after a special person I know

taking city populations rather than metro areas, i figure the average at the moment is 386,165, which is pretty close to the population in Honolulu.

As it's the only one I've been to, I'll pick Colorado, which has capital Denver, pop 554,636. However, the metropolitan area has pop 2,179,240 (both from wikipedia).

[NB - QM asked for the state, not the capital. I was giving the population to make life easier for him, as I imagine others were too.]

ETA - Denver is of course known as the Mile High City, for obvious reasons. I imagine that would mean the Mile High club is quite easy to join there! I remember when we went up into the mountains there were shops selling "two mile high ice cream cones" and so on...

I'll go for Delaware - in 1965: On May 21, a "Delaware Closed Today" sign is posted at a barricade on the Delaware-Pennsylvania line on Ebright Road. "The people of Delaware are doing something about the population explosion," is the explanation from "Candid Camera.".

From the 2000 census, the population of Dover was only 32,135.

I'll choose Wyoming.

Capitol is Cheyenne, population 55 362, which started as a tent camp for railroad workers.

I might comment, however, on the population of Honolulu, given that I had chosen it in the practice round as a city with a population over 500 000. We, of course, should be using the population of the official political entity, rather than the general metropolitan area as is sometimes done in common usage. In the coase of Honolulu, the smallest political subdivision is the City and County of Honolulu, as represented by the Mayor of Honolulu and the Honolulu City Council. This has a population of 876 156 and includes all of the island of Oahu plus some surrounding islands. (A good candidate for the city with the largest area: over 5500 square km, of which over 70% is water.)

Actually it works for both of us. It increases the population of your city much more than it raises the average, giving you a pretty safe large number. And it raises the average even more to keep it above those of us with lower numbers.

Glad to be of assistance.

I shall go for The Commonwealth of Massachusetts whose capital (Boston) had a population of 589,141 in 2000. For those who are interested (anyone?) the Greater Boston metropolitan area has a population of approx 5.8 million. Which is nice.

(BTW note the full title of the state pedantry fans. Oh yes - its a commonwealth. Don't know what it means, don't particularly care, but score one up for pedantic observation!)

I make the current average 282,473. Which means jedijudy is in trouble.

In fact, having run some simulations it would take no more than two more cities with a combined population not less than 1,500,000 to save her. If there are more than two more cities their combined population required to save her rises (eg to 1,900,000 for three cities).

It would take at least five cities with a population of zero to lower the average enough to keep her in the game [Eek!] . So I think anyone with a lower population than jj is as safe as it's possible to be in this round [Big Grin]

only if you take Tallahassee's metro area.
jj said the city population was only 156,512 - nowhere near that average.

If HazeyJane's entry is as she says, 390,000 then the average is around 277,000 but if it is increased like Carex suggests, then the average is 301,800.

either way, Alabama is on shaky ground, so to speak.

I make the current average 275,764. That's using the higher of rugasaw's two answers.

Moth is toast unless there's someone who hasn't posted yet.

Ok last minute entry... thank you for the wikepedia link.

I am going to go for Columbus Ohio. I could not see that anyone else had posted that. With a population of 711,470 that should up the average a bit. [Razz]

The average has been upped by about 18,000 to 293,192. Moth is still closest by a long way...
