In the 1910 Census, New York was the nation's largest city with a population approaching 5 million, while Los Angeles was not even on the list of the nation's top 15. Today New York is still the nation's largest city, with more than 8 million people, while Los Angeles ranks number two, with almost 4 million people. As our country continues to grow and expand, the census helps us track not only where we have been, but also where we are going as a nation.
