LARGEST COUNTIES IN POPULATION IN US

California contains 59 incorporated cities with populations over 100,000.   The largest city in California is Los Angeles, with a population of nearly 4 million people. Its size overshadows the next largest city, San Diego, by three times! San Jose ranks as the third largest city with nearly 1 million people. It overtook San Francisco in size nearly a decade ago when San Jose's Silicon Valley became a phenomenon. San Jose had room to grow when San Francisco did not.  Fairly close in population size are 5th, 6th and 7th ranking Long Beach, Fresno and Sacramento.  Oakland, San Ana and Anaheim come in 8th, 9th and 10th in population in California.
