Anyone else notice the lack of Wood Elves in Skyrim? And it's also very rare to see Khajits as well.

Khajiit's are always outside cities, and there's a wood elf in Riverwood...

Well, how many approximately? Three or four in the entire game? Are there cities that have lots of Khajit and Wood Elves, etc?

Not really. The give each nation/setting of each major game its own character by giving it different demographics. It's also an effort to preserve the canon lore of the game. Every area has its history and background determining who lives there. Catwashing (like whitewashing) a nation far away from Elsweyr with a completely different climate and a history of little immigration compared to, say, Cyrodil wouldn't make any sense. I actually applaud them for doing this, and that's not just because I am a fierce activist against recognizing Khajit as an intelligent race. All they ever do is steal.

Looking back, I loved the feeling in Morrowind where you were in a very alien feeling land where most of the Dunmer were quite hostile. It gave the land a lot of character. Cyrodil, on the other hand, felt much more universally accepting and friendly because it has a much more diverse culture mix and Imperial architecture is much more familiar to what we know in the real human world.

I run into lots of wood elves. They all seem to die in painful ways though. It's probably because they're disgusting cannibals and some hero out there is purging Skyrim of them.

There are a few wandering Kajit, wood elves are sprawled around and some are enemy hunters that will attack you in the forests. There aren't whole cities, no. But if I recall they really don't come from this region and most migrated and are facing oppression from the racist nords.

I doubt many live fruitfull lives.
