I like the idea but there is quite a few errors in this quiz. Where is Edmonton, Tijuana, Winnipeg, Guadalajara, Monterrey, Managua, Caracas, Santo Domingo, Santiago de Chile, Lima...?

I've fixed the problems and it has now turned into 100 cities.

I changed the source and it’s now citypopulation.de, a source used by most population quizzes on this site so that information is accurate.

Hartford surprised me here. Where did you get the data for Hartford from though? Citypopulation.de lists the CSA population as 1.48 million and the MSA population as 1.21 million.

From the "major agglomerations of the world" table, where I got all the other figures from. That table includes Springfield, MA as part of Hartford's agglomeration.
