I guess they think it's good enough for government work even though they said 12:01 a.m. Eastern Standard Time.

good find.


I wonder why Farmington, New Mexico lost the greatest percent of their population?

Coal towns in PA still shedding people.. Given how the casino industry collapsed in Atlantic City, I would have assumed a bigger loss.

AWESOME

For the 2nd year in a row, previous Census estimates were revised upward for San Francisco, and city posted strong growth.

2013 estimate revised upward from 837,442 to 841,138.
2014 estimate stands at 852,469

2010 Census was 805,235.

So the city is at record population. Density increased from 17,180 ppsm in 2010 to 18,188 ppsm in 2014. Using the same compound daily growth rate, by April 1, 2020 SF could have about 920K people and a density approaching 20K ppsm.

Of course that assumes delivery of about 35-40K new housing units between last July and early 2020 if people aren't going to continue cramming multiple to a room. Only a fraction of that will actually happen, though, and the tech sector (and biotech sector) will likely cool off for a couple years starting sometime between late next year and 2018. PwC is forecasting the cool down to begin this year. They are by far the most bearish.

I'll bet San Francisco has at least 880,000 residents by next Census and certainly at least 950,000 by 2030.

In terms of "peer" group "urban" counties:

Brooklyn added 19,420 people (0.75%)
Queens added 17,587 (0.76%)
San Francisco added 11,331 (1.35%)
Bronx added 10,482 (0.76%)
DC added 9,782 people (1.51%)
Suffolk County (Boston) added 7,161 (0.94%)
Hudson County NJ added 5,209 (0.78%)
Manhattan added 4,263 (0.26%)
Philadelphia added 4,245 (0.27%)
Cook County (Chicago) lost 179 (no change)
Baltimore lost 611 (-0.10%)

SF/SJ are growing like weeds right now relative to the other "dense-urban" cities/metros. Followed by DC, but DC has notably slowed (both in the city and in its surrounding urban counties like Fairfax, Arlington, and Alexandria).

Other urban centers are not growing that much. In New York, clearly Brooklyn and Queens are adding the population.

Chicago is still losing population it would appear. Wayne Co (Detroit) also lost pretty significant population, which was barely made up by suburban growth.

Philadelphia is in the black, but barely.


All 4 TX cities are growing like WEEDS, as are Charlotte and Raleigh. Orlando and South FL also growing like weeds while Jax and Tampa not so much. Atlanta also not really growing that fast.


The Bay Area is really putting on the population and has the only counties, for the most part, in CA that are seeing net domestic immigration as opposed to heavy net domestic emigration. For instance, SoCal grows purely by net foreign immigration which offsets the net domestic emigration.

SF MSA added 64,406 people with almost half of that in Alameda Co (Oakland's county) - 1.42% growth. Now at 4,594,060. Phoenix and Inland Empire are nipping at its heels, but SF is looking to pass Boston, as well (within ~100k).

SJ MSA added 24,171 people (1.25%).

The core 6 counties touching the Bay are right at 6.5 million people and added nearly 90,000 people last year.

Additional North Bay CSA Counties (Napa, Sonoma, and Solano Counties) added nearly 12K people and accounted for an additional 1.07 million people.

Stockton added over 10K people and accounted for 716K people. Santa Cruz accounted for 272K people.

Total CSA now over 8.6 million (113K people added)...1.33% growth.
