More than one-half the population of the state lives in incorporated cities and villages. More than one-third of our total population now lives in cities of more than 2,500 inhabitants. During the past ten years the growth of Nebraska's municipal population has been greater than of the rural population, in the eastern half of Nebraska the increase of town population has far exceeded that of the country. In fact many rural counties and precincts in eastern Nebraska show an absolute decrease of population between 1910 and 1920. The problems of municipal government, even in our own farming and grazing region, will then directly involve more than half of our population.
The figures of the United States census in the tables which follow are not wholly satisfactory, for two principal reasons:
(1) The censuses of 1860, of 1870, and of 1880 in many cases did not separate the population of incorporated towns from that of the precincts where they were situated.
(2) In Nebraska the United States census of 1890 was a stuffed and fraudulent census, the population of a number of cities being grossly exaggerated.
The tables which follow tell the story of municipal growth in Nebraska in a graphic way:
COMPARISON OF NEBRASKA CITIES AND VILLAGES WITH RURAL POPULATION, 1860-1920.
Year Number of Places With More Than 2,500 Population Population of Places Having More Than 2,500 Population Number of Places With Less Than 2,500 Population Population of Places Having Less Than 2,500 Population Population of All Incorporated Places Rural Population Total Population of State Rural Population in Per Cent
1Population of cities and villages not separated from precincts by this census except in some cases.
2City population as shown by this census report greatly in excess of true population.
