The figure is 1 in every ten. Note that the urban figure includes tribal settlements such as Clearwine as well as the cities proper such as Boldhome. In addition, the population figures for the Sartarite cities as of 1621 have been given in an old glorantha-con book as:

Jonstown                2,000
Duckpoint               100
Wilmskirk               1,500
Swenstown               1,000
Boldhome                11,000
