For the Count -- Daily Nutmeg New Haven
When the nation’s first census was taken in 1790, New Haven was the 17th-most populous city in America, with 4,487 inhabitants. The 24th decennial count this year will record where everyone living in the 50 states, the District of Columbia and five US territories is living on April 1. We don’t know how New Haven will stack up yet, but one thing is clear: we’ll still be a small city. We haven’t made the list of the 100 largest cities in the nation since 1960, and we won’t this time, either.
