So we saw awhile back the overall metro population estimates, but the city/town/village estimates have just come out.

Here's how the largest places did (5,000 and up) in the Columbus metro by 2011 estimate and growth from April 2010 to July 2011.

1. Columbus: 797,434 +10,401
2. Newark: 47,790 +217
3. Dublin: 42,346 +595
4. Lancaster: 39,026 +246
5. Marion: 36,689 -148
6. Westerville: 36,665 +545
7. Reynoldsburg: 36,293 +400
8. Grove City: 36,052 +477
9. Delaware: 35,541 +788
10. Upper Arlington: 34,223 +452
11. Gahanna: 33,694 +466
12. Hilliard: 28,816 +381
13. Marysville: 22,288 +194
14. Pickerington: 18,408 +117
15. Whitehall: 18,306 +244
16. Mount Vernon: 17,087 +97
17. Pataskala: 15,031 +69
18. Worthington: 13,755 +180
19. Circleville: 13,389 +75
20. Bexley: 13,221 +164
21. Powell: 11,777 +277
22. Heath: 10,357 +47
23.London: 9,896 -8
24. New Albany: 7,834 +110
25. Canal Winchester: 7,191 +90
26.Grandview Heights: 6,625 +89
27. Granville: 5,662 +16
28. Groveport: 5,435 +72

So for all places with a population of 5,000+, only 2 of the 28 saw a loss the last year or so.

Also, of the 89 cities/towns/villages with a population of at least 100 people, here is the following breakdown of their population trends 2000-2011.

-4 places had no change 2000-2011.
-19 places, almost all of them near or around the immediate Columbus area, including Bexley, Granview, Whitehall, etc, saw population losses 2000-2010, but a return of growth the last year. All of the Columbus urban core areas that are not a part of Columbus city itself saw growth.
-61 places continued to grow from 2010-2011 as they did during 2000-2010.
-8 places, almost all in Marion County, continued to lose people 2010-2011 as they did in 2000-2010.
-6 places that grew 2000-2010 showed losses from 2010-2011.

Overall, this shows generally a continuance of strong growth in the Columbus metro, but also a return to growth to many places that were not growing the previous decade. Columbus' 10,401 people added during the last 16 or so months is actually faster than the growth recorded during the 2000-2010 period, as well.

Good to see the inner-ring suburbs like Upper Arlington, Grandview, Bexley and Whitehall gain people

Urban living gains popularity, data show | The Columbus Dispatch

A Dispatch article showing how the the rate of the core city growth in Columbus is now faster than the rate of suburban growth.

Though their listed population of Columbus in the article is completely wrong and doesn't match the 2011 estimate, let alone the 2010 Census count. They list 2010 as 771,726 while the 2010 Census was 787,033, and they list the 2011 estimate at 780,288, while the actual 2011 estimate is 797,434. If it was just a small difference I wouldn't mention it, but 17,000 people is kind of significant. They did get the % changes right, with the city growing at 1.1% and the suburbs growing at 0.9%.
