There should be a caveat relating to your nickname. It would be no surprise if many of those cities would be in Colorado as well.

There are about 40,000 people in the city of Prescott and about 40,000 in Prescott Valley, the two largest cities in the "metro area." Chino Valley, the third largest city in the area has 11,000 people. I'd like to know where the other 100,000 people live.

@jma - the cutoff for the quiz is 100,000 people. Even using your numbers, that only leaves 9,000 people unaccounted for, most of whom live in the unincorporated county areas. Total population of the metro area (as of 2010) was just over 103K.

I'm questioning the population given in this quiz. It states that Prescott, AZ has a population of 215,133 and that is a lot more than 100,00. I'm not arguing that the "metro area" is close to 100,000.

I lived in Las Vegas, New Mexico and I never knew Santa Fe was the highest city. I bet most people don't know that Las Vegas, New Mexico is the original Las Vegas (if they've even heard of Las Vegas, New Mexico).

Well, it's "metro area", so who knows what all is being counted? What I am really trying to figure out though, is how Boulder even supposedly *has* a "metro area". Broomfield is its own county, so that can't count. No way could you include Longmont. All I can imagine is Louisville, Lafayette, Ned, Niwot, Jamestown, and Lyons, and there's no way those TRIPLE the population. I'm guessing that the whole 36 corridor is being included in BOTH Denver's *and* Boulder's count. In fact, Boulder itself is usually included as part of metro Denver, much to the eternal chagrin of us Boulderites.

US "metropolitan areas" just gobble up numerous whole counties, which have wildly varying sizes, not an accurate gauge of metropolitan population for smaller cities at all.

I only got 29 of 35 before I ran out of time and beat 99.2% of people? That's a peculiar statistic.
