What Is The Population of The Bay Area?

May 15, 2012 3:50 am

This is a question we had in our mind for quite some time – we keep calling it the heart of the tech world, silicon valley etc – how many people are there in the Bay Area, anyways? We spotted this today:

“Today, the Bay Area has about 7 million residents. In a free housing market, the population of the San Francisco Bay Area would have been growing rapidly over the last two decades. For example, between 1900 and 1920, the growth of the auto industry helped the population of the Detroit metro area nearly triple, from 540,000 people to 1.4 million people. If the San Francisco Bay Area had grown that fast since 1990, it would have about 16 million people today.”
