LA, Irvine among USA cities with biggest population growth, census finds

"That's a growth rate of 1.6 percent".

Bend is again one of the fastest growing cities in the nation with a population approaching 100,000.

Notably, Fort Worth - which has maintained a more steady annual population gain - surpassed Indianapolis, Indiana, to become the 15th-largest city in the nation.

San Antonio was the fastest-growing city by population with 24,208 newcomers in 2017. For instance, the Census Bureau reported past year that Chicago's population had fallen by 8,638 residents in 2016. "That's a growth rate of 1.6 percent. This growth was enough to push San Antonio's population above the 1.5 million mark", he added. But experts warn that doesn't necessarily mean the exodus from the city and state is about to end. The other top 14 cities on this list haven't changed since 2016.

For example, Beaverton recorded 97,514 residents and Hillsboro reached 106,894 between July 1, 2016 and July 1, 2017, according to the census data. Of approximately 19,500 incorporated places, about 76 percent had fewer than 5,000 people and almost 50 percent had fewer than 1,000 people.

"Both series show significant growth for both cities", said Charles Rynerson, a research faculty member in PSU's Population Research Center.

Hempstead Village - the Island's most populous - had the largest numeric increase in population over the seven-year period, rising by 1,732 people, or 3.2 percent. Chicago ranks third with more than 2.7 million residents, followed by Houston and Phoenix. However, this accounted for only 54.9 percent of the South's 123.7 million total population.

At its peak, Detroit had almost 1.9 million people in 1950. The Census Bureau will release additional population estimates by age, sex, race, and Hispanic origin for the nation, states, and counties on June 21.

Franklin's increase of 4.9 percent-from 74,685 in 2016 to 78,321 in 2017-also made it the fastest-growing large city in Tennessee. McKinney was No. 9 with a 4.8 percent increase, and Flower Mound was No. 11 with a 4.3 percent increase.

Conroe, which topped the national list a year ago, didn't even make it onto the list of the 10 fastest-growing cities in the state. In terms of the largest numeric increase, the top five were Texas (955,000), California (497,000), Florida (452,000), North Carolina (295,000) and NY (219,000). Its annual projections are issued after researchers review responses to questions posed to city officials across OR in regard to changes in housing stock and "group quarters" populations living in places such as college dormitories, nursing homes and jails. As Michigan communities made gains, especially in Grand Rapids, Lansing and Ann Arbor, the city once at the heart of the US auto industry dropped almost 2,380 resident. That's a drop of about 2,300 people - a little lower than the previous year's loss and a 10th of the rate of population loss of the 2000s.
