How We Determined The Largest Cities In Kansas

We've been ranking and dissecting cities in the Sunflower State for over 4 years now -- making this actually the fourth time we've run the numbers. We always use the best data, the US Census. In this case, that means we are using the 2013-2017 American Community Survey.

It what is probably the most simple analysis we run each year, we ranked every place in Kansas from biggest to smallest. The biggest city this year? That would be Wichita.

The smallest? Dighton, although there are places smaller than 1,000 people not listed here, so keep that in mind as we take a look at the top ten.
