The tiniest town in every state Part 5

By Sarah Schmalbruch From Insider

Often, a state’s largest city is considered its best place to live.

But there’s something to be said for rural towns too.

We rounded up the least-populated town in every state, based on the US Census Bureau’s 2016 annual estimate of the resident population.

This data was collected using administrative records (births, deaths, records of moves), all of which were then weighed against the 2010 census. This list includes only incorporated towns.

While the majority of the towns that made the list have single-digit populations, there are a few states whose smallest towns are much larger. This is because these towns are located in densely populated states, and different states have different requirements for formally incorporating a town.

Keep scrolling to see the tiniest towns across the country.
