The current population is barely over 700,000. We are a very small town.

Good luck in your research

The updated estimated population of San Francisco City and County (49 square miles) as of June 2003 is 800,000 people. However, the daytime population of the city is well over 1.5 million people. In addition, the population of the San Francisco Bay Area (San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose) is now 7 million people. Therefore, the Bay area is the 4th largest Metropolitan Area in the US...following New York City Metro (18 million), Los Angeles-Anaheim-Riverside (14.5 million) and Chicago (8.8 million)...
