In the case of a distribution from a population sample, I would have used ANOVA and, if significant, followed up with a post-hoc test. What package should I use to test the difference in population distribution?

Statistical significance refer to when you have a sample drawn from a population, or two samples drawn from two populations and you want to infer if the population mean or relative frequency differ between the populations.

An other thing is what is meant by “large”. If the relative frequency of 31-35 year old is 4% larger in one city, then it is up to your judgement if that is large.

@obh - I think you did not understand the OP's question.
