Excerpt from Census Recreations: Facts and Figures Relative to the Growth and Rank of Cities in the State, in the Country, and Thru-Out the World
The printed table following names some 200 of the largest cities in the United States strictly in order of size and groups them to show their respective grades, divisions or classes. The time scheme in this chart works automatically, so to speak, to form the grades and divi sions as marked on the diagram, the same corresponding to the time periods, day and half day. As most of our cities are in Grade A, first day, and still mark time on the first dial, a further classification and grouping of these seem desirable if not necessary. Such classification must be more or less arbitrary, though divisions are made at numbers in the census scale that are generally regarded as land-marks; thus, the million point attained may mark a city as in the million class.
Then, in like manner, we get the half and the quarter million, the hundred, the sixty and the thirty m. Classes.
The population of each city is given in even m.'s or thousands, the same number and designation standing also for the number of minutes covered by the proportionate time marking. Then follows in another column the time notation, the sole object of which is to point out the precise point on the diagram at which the city should be marked as on a map - to show its measure of growth and its rank. These figures, the record of population and time, are given for 1900 and 1910, With blank spaces provided for 1920.
