Pretty sure pop was down to 50million after chaos day, though it may have grown a little since. Don't think we've had any post DoC employment stats, but there was mention of labour gangs to rebuild,  so I guess there'd be more job opportunities than in the days of 98% unemployment

There have been numbers since that put the figure higher than 50m, largely on the basis of people returning to the city. I don't have an exact figure to mind, but I recall it being in the 70s.

Can't remember where, but I'm sure I've seen 67m somewhere, partially population growth, partially immigration and partially people who fled returning to the city.

Erhmm.....do you guys ever read the “in this Prog” bit in the Nerve Centre?

Under Judge Dredd it says “ Mega City One...home to over 72 million citizens”.

Yes, I remember the question actually being answered by Tharg on the letters page, then it appeared later in the Nerve centre bit.

It’s in the Nerve Centre every week. Not sure when it started, but it has been there for years.

Anyway the population has been slowly creeping up since the post Day of Chaos low of 50 million.
