States & Provinces
Ranked by Population



This list combines the States of the United States and the Provinces & Territories of Canada and then ranks them based on their population.

Since the United States and Canada take their census at different times, they can't be compared directly. For the purpose of this list, we have used the last census from Statistics Canada (performed in 2006) and compared it against the U.S. Census Bureau's Estimated Population counts for the same year.
