Rank of the most populous cities at each census : 1790-1890
- Rank of the most populous cities at each census : 1790-1890
America Transformed: In addition to thematic maps, the statistical atlas included other graphics illustrating 1890 census data. This chart lists major cities from the highest to lowest populations, from New York City to Trenton, New Jersey. Each column to the right features data from an earlier census. A line traces the rise and fall of each city's population over time. For example, New York City had the highest population since the nation's first census in 1790. Chicago, in contrast, was not even considered a major city until 1850. The midwestern hub grew rapidly to become the second largest city by 1890.
