It has 307,990 inhabitants, making it the largest urban centre in the Kenyan mid-west with Eldoret in Uasin Gishu following closely behind.

It received township status in 1904 and became a municipality in 1952.The history of Kenya as a country is closely intertwined with that of Nakuru as a town and a district which is now a county.
