Dallas

2013-2014 change: 20,322
2014 estimate: 1,281,047
Change 2010-14: 83,255
Pct. change: 6.95%

Really good considering it only grew 9,236 or .8% from 2000-2010.

I don't trust these city numbers. The margin of error in the 2009 estimate to the 2010 was so substantial that it was virtually useless.

At this rate of growth, Seattle will be at 700,000 people by 2016/2017.

Looks like Seattle is in the top 20 now. It should have passed Memphis, is neck and neck with El Paso, and looks like both Seattle and El Paso will be passing Detroit soon.

I won't be surprised if the estimates for 2015 put Seattle at 18, El Paso at 19, Memphis at 20 and Detroit at 21.

Comparing cities is like comparing the size of counties. It is meaningless for marketing and other needs besides government.
San Antonio is fast approaching the 2.5 million mark, "dwarfs" is a bit of an exaggeration. Dekalb and Fulton Counties cover between 800-900 square miles and include the bulk of urban Atlanta, 1.7 million residents, the rest of the metro is not as urban, a whole lot of low density exburbs over a very large territory. San Antonio has 1.5 million people within less than 400 square miles, granted San Antonio doesn't have nowhere near as many exburbs like Atlanta, there isn't much outlying exburbs in the western and southern portions of metro S.A, the heavy population base is north and northwest of San Antonio and along the I-35 corridor towards Austin, one of the fastest growing regions in the country.

Wow!

Denver, CO
Census 2010: 600,158
2010 adjusted: 600,025
2014 estimate: 663,862
Change 2010-14: 63,837
Pct. change: 10.64%

I feel like my county is under-estimated. Lots of people still moving up here, including myself. Past estimates put us well above 60,000 by now, not sure what's up with the Census Bureau estimates.

Eagle County, CO
Census 2010: 52,197
2014 estimate: 52,921
Change 2010-14: 724
Pct. change: 1.39%

I've been playing with the tool and having fun. I have to get a life.

In any case, I have come across an odd data set for one city that might be replicated in other cities as well. The city is Omaha. It appears between this tool and Census website that the base 2010 population has been adjusted significantly 2 times. The original 2010 estimate was 408,958. According the Census website, that number was adjusted to 416,969. Now there appears to be yet another adjustment to 423,327 as the baseline 2010 population.
While most cities have had a small amount of adjustment to their baseline 2010 population, are there other cities where there is such a wide variation, no less two adjustments?

I think Omaha has annexed a few neighboring communities in the recent past. You should check to see the city's square mileage and it that has gone up, there's your answer. Other than that, the census people are constantly doing adjustments to their estimates and baselines, sometimes at a given city's request.
