If a hydrogen bomb was dropped on New York City today there would be 8 million or more killed in the initial blast zone and later from radiation poisoning and cancer. So it depends on how many people are in the initial blast zone and radiation spread.

Why are hydrogen bombs called dirty bombs?

Hydrogen bombs are called "dirty" bombs because, in the final stage of detonation, they fission 1 a lot of uranium, releasing its binding energy.
