I believe Phoenix passed Philadelphia in the 2000 census and Philly re-passed Phoenix in 2010.

And now Phoenix has re-passed again. I think this one will stick.

Why is the Q, X, and Z blank for metro area? Wouldn't they just be the same answer for city proper? Even if those cities don't have any suburbs, then the populations would just be the same for both categories. But if there is no bigger metro area then they still win.

I thought the same thing, but I'll bet it's because those three cities aren't big enough to qualify as an MSA with the census bureau.

As one who was raised in Xenia, OH, it's just outside Dayton and probably is considered in Dayton's metro area; you can't be considered part of a metro area AND have your own metro.

Amazed that Utica, NY made it onto a list of biggest anything other than biggest decline in population since 1930.

I mistakenly thought you were asking for the metro area of the city, not a completely separate metro area. Duh.

Being from Ohio helps you get some of the odd letters; it's the only state with at least one city that starts with each letter of the alphabet! Here's a quiz try to guess them: http://www.jetpunk.com/user-quizzes/103225/ohio-cities-a-z

Wow, that's a great piece of trivia you got there! I had a great interest about Ohio because my region in France shares a lot of traits with that state, but I learnt something today, on my way to ace that quiz!

I hate it when this happens. You spend too much time thinking of obscure cities you forget New York. When I wrote New York then, genuinely for a second I expected and hoped for it to disappear.

If you expanded the quiz to include micropolitan areas, you'd be able to add Quincy, IL and Zanesville, OH.

Isn't Zanesville more populated than Zionsville?

Zionsville, Indiana is not a city, it is a town, so it technically doesn't qualify to be on this list. Zanesville, Ohio is a city just barely under Zionsville's population.
