Urmia is the 10th most populated (List of Iran cities by population) city in Iran. At the 2012 census, its population was 667,499 with 197,749 households.

The city is the trade center for a fertile agricultural region where fruit (especially apple and grape) and tobacco are grown.

Urmia was the seat of the first U.S. Christian mission in Iran (1835). Around AD 1900, Christians made up more than 40% of the city's population, however, most of the Christians fled in 1918 http: www.encyclopedia.com doc 1E1-Urmia.html E.J.
