Great info. That's mega year over year growth in DFW and Houston. Wow!

Pittsburgh's loss surprises me, I thought there was more positive economic momentum to drive population growth.

Looks like Phoenix might crack the top ten within the next decade or so.

EDIT: Woohoo! Detroit is in the green, albeit a small amount, its still cool to see

It looks like you could sandwich the Phoenix MSA between #7 Washington and # 8 Colorado.

The thing that gets me about Houston, Los Angeles, and Dallas-Fort Worth is not so much how they've grown compared to peer large cities or anything like that. Houston, Los Angeles, Dallas-Fort Worth have all been pretty much putting their competition, in terms of population growth, to bed for four or five years now (save for New York). This is no surprise to me at this point at all.

What is surprising to me is this: In all technicality you can put their raw numerical growth against whole regions of the United States that have 75 million people (Midwest) and 56 million people (Northeast) and the trio of cities can compete with something as seemingly outlandish as that and even more outlandish is that they stack up favorably too.

Point number two that gets me is that when you pit all of those places -- Houston, Los Angeles, Dallas-Fort Worth, and even San Francisco Bay Area -- against states of the United States, only California, Texas, and Florida have grown by more and that is not particularly shocking since California and Texas are the two home states for all four of these cities. Technically California (38 million) AND Texas (26 million) have each grown by more people than the Northeast (56 million) and Midwest (75 million) combined in the past year and Florida (20 million) has nearly matched that too.

If you want to see what a ridiculous rate of growth looks like in 2015 America, I would only look at those four this year [Houston, Los Angeles, Dallas-Fort Worth, San Francisco Bay Area] and if we have to look at states then CA, TX, and FL.

This is not surprising if you know how demographics work...it is all about TFR. The Midwest and Northeast have the lowest TFR in the country.

You want a more shocking examples?
Texas is growing faster than European Union which has a population of 500 million.
Nigeria is growing faster than the entire United States and Canada combined, with less than half the population.
Chattanooga, TN is growing faster than the entire country of Japan.

Yeah, I know about the replacement level and fertility rate. I usually run numbers for Japan, Germany, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, China, United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, and France off just the replacement levels. My math has China at a 100,000,000 population loss by 2050 the way it's going right now. We're going to witness some severe declines starting all over the world after 2020 - 2025 it seems. Spain has already started it's decline, a loss of 400,000 since 2011 and it's all due to a plummeting replacement level. The fertility rate is dropping worldwide -- some places are at an irreplaceable level now -- and Midwest and Northeast are starting to mimic some places overseas in this regard, thankfully unlike much of those places, the Northeast and to a much lessor extent the Midwest at least get a respectable amount of immigration in. South Korea and Japan, for example, don't even have that going for them.

Yes, absolutely, those examples you listed are very shocking to me (even though I know why it's happening). It's ridiculous. It really is.

Fun fact; only five American states have a replacement level at world levels or higher (2.1).

The mind-boggling thing though is still seeing how significantly smaller places outdo larger ones in growth though. I don't think it's settled in for me yet because I am still very much flabbergasted on how this is happening (even though I know the reason why).

We're going to witness some severe declines starting all over the world after 2020 - 2025 it seems. Spain has already started it's decline, a loss of 400,000 since 2011 and it's all due to a plummeting replacement level. The fertility rate is dropping worldwide and Midwest and Northeast are starting to mimic some places overseas in this regard, thankfully unlike much of those places, the Northeast and to a much lessor extent the Midwest at least get a respectable amount of immigration in.

Yes, absolutely, those examples you listed are very shocking to me (even though I know why it's happening). It's ridiculous. It really is.

Fun fact; only five American states have a replacement level at world levels or higher (2.1).

The mind-boggling thing though is still seeing how significantly smaller places outdo larger ones in growth though. I don't think it's settled in for me yet because I am still very much flabbergasted on how this is happening (even though I know the reason why).
United States as a whole has negative TFR, if it wasn't for immigration and young population pyramid, we would be declining as well. Then you could say that Butte, North Dakota that went from 68 to 71 people had bigger raw population gains than the United States as a whole.

Total fertility rate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Most of the light blue areas will be experiencing severe decline in population. Some have already started with no way to stop it. The future of growth in China, for example, already has their administration on edge and the people there are seriously concerned now that the one-child policy and favoring of boys to girls for several generations will come back to haunt them. Then there's the fact that it's the mainland and its immigration rate is a non-factor in the grand scheme of things. Chinese cities have only grown because of urbanization, lots of former Chinese farmers and their families moving to urban centers on the mainland in flocks. Most of those cities actually have a higher death rate than birth rate.

It's game over.

I know this is off-topic, but what happens to cities in these declining countries like Japan for examples? Do they just become abandoned eventually? Would there be no need for anymore construction(which are huge contributors to a local economy)? Would they have to start taking in more immigrants to fill in the empty housing units, but take a chance with higher crime and more poverty(and potential racial strife)?
