Most sectors (that we hear/read about, anyway) tend to be clustered around a great many other planets. Subsectors usually range around the 50-100 and sectors themselves number 200 or so.
This makes sense considering a sector that is largely alone will probably die alone.
Also I would be hesitant to scale the crew up so high. Since I'd assume more space is filled with vast machinery. And the odd palaces and cathedrals hanging around even escort vessels.
Dark Heresy (or is it Rogue Trader? I always get them mixed up) gives crew amounts for various vessels. From small traders up to Luna class cruisers.
