The most populous barangay in General Santos City is Barangay Calumpang with 67,832 residents, closely followed by Barangay Fatima at 67,309.

Rounding off the Top 5 Most Populous Barangays in the Tuna Capital are Barangay Labangal (57,769 residents);  Barangay Lagao (47,953); and,  Barangay Apopong (43,596).

The GenSan Barangay with the least number of residents are all rural barangays –  Barangay Olympog (2,797).  It is followed by Barangay Upper Labay (2,911) and Barangay Batolmelong (3,624).

I reside at Barangay San Isidro which has a total population of 38,980 residents!  My barangay hosts the most number of new villages and subdivisions and this might dislodge another barangay from the TOP 5 Most Populous during the next census.

How about you, which barangay in General Santos do you belong to?
