In March 2014, Chris Zontine (cc’d) and I ADDED city population values for nodes that _*did not*_ have a 'population' tag. We focused on nodes that had a "place=city" or "place=town" tag. We reviewed approximately 625 nodes, updated bout 560 of them. This was a manual editing process that included obtaining population figures from the American Factfinder (Census 201).
Just an FYI.

I think we should consider a mechanical edit to update these tags to the 2010 Census figures en masse. I've been updating individual places as I edit them for other reasons, but this tag is most useful when its vintage is consistent across the board.
