Census: Franklin Among Nation's Fastest-Growing Large Cities

Пятница, 25 Мая, 2018

The mostly downward trend in population gains isn't limited to Houston; Austin's net gain of residents has also steadily decreased since 2014.

But in the 38 years since, the city's population has only grown by 9,075, according to U.S. Census Bureau estimates being released Thursday, May 24.

Franklin last held the title in 2013, with Murfreesboro in the top spot from 2014 through previous year.

The report says that on July 1, 2017, Owensboro had an estimated 59,404 residents - up 283 from a year earlier and up 2,139 from 2010.

Tulsa is the second-largest city in the state after Oklahoma City.

Tulsa joins Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore and Milwaukee among major cities that have seen population declines in the past year.

The Detroit News reports that utility hookup records say the city has 3,000 more occupied homes than a year ago.

If you're among the tens of thousands of people who moved to Seattle some time after the start of this decade, all these construction cranes and the throngs of newcomers streaming into town must seem rather normal.

The statistics released today cover all local governmental units, including incorporated places, minor civil divisions, and consolidated cities.

Of the five largest cities - New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston and Phoenix - only Chicago saw a population drop, according to census figures.

Nationally, the bureau found northeastern cities, which swelled by only 2.2 percent on average, are facing the lowest percentages of growth since 2010. Among the top 20 cities in the US, it was the only one to lose residents over the year. That year, New Orleans added nearly 39,000 residents as people started going back home after Hurricane Katrina.

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

These trends align with Illinois' statewide problem of population loss, which has been occurring for the last four years consecutively - driven by a loss of people to other states. 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). That's a rate more than 11 times faster than the nation's growth rate of 0.7 percent.

The census ranks Bend as the 18th-fastest growing city in the USA this decade. Miami, which ranked second behind Seattle in 2016, had the most dramatic decline.
