The Census Bureau's 2007 county population estimates are out. As of July 1st, 2007, Bexar County is estimated to have 1,594,493 peeps, an increase of 39,301 people (2.53%) from 2006. The San Antonio metro area, which consists of Bexar and the seven surrounding counties, had a population of 1,990,675, up 53,925 (2.78%) from 2006, which is almost exactly the same numerical increase as 2005-2006 (53,965). Previously, year-to-year raw growth was around 35,000, so I had figured the 2006 number was an anomaly contributable to the Hurricane Katrina evacuees, but it looks like it's now a high-growth trend. In any case, the SA metro area most likely crossed the 2 million population threshold sometime in September of last year.

In the suburban counties, Comal was the fastest growing in both raw numbers and percentage growth, adding 5,112 people (5.11%) to reach 105,187. Kendall was second in percentage growth and Guadalupe was second in numerical growth.

Here are the 2007 populations with the corresponding change over the previous year's estimate:

Atascosa County.......43,589 (+566, 1.31%)
Bandera County........20,197 (+493, 2.50%)
Bexar County.......1,594,493 (+39,301, 2.53%)
Comal County.........105,187 (+5,112, 5.11%)
Guadalupe County.....112,777 (+5,093, 4.73%)
Kendall County........31,342 (+1,485, 4.97%)
Medina County.........43,826 (+610, 1.41%)
Wilson County.........39,264 (+1,266, 3.33%)

I have lived here since the summer of 1994 - when the city was under on million...alot has changed since then. We are slowly shedding the small town feel as we grow by the day.

I'd have to guess that we're no longer shy of that number.

Actually, San Diego has been losing population for the past four years. Meanwhile, San Antonio continues to close the gap on the #6 spot, which is currently occupied by Philadelphia. If we continue growing at our current rate, we should move up to 6th sometime right around the next census in 2010.
