Cleveland population loss slows; find latest census estimates for every U.S. city, county and state | cleveland.com

Five of the Nation’s Eleven Fastest-Growing Cities are in Texas

You can click(or copy/paste) that link, type in a city and get year over year population estimates for your city proper.

For the most part the same cities are doing well, though some of the biggest gainers over the last few years are slowing down a bit(Seattle, Austin, etc).

The population estimates also confirms what we knew about certain midwestern cities when the metro estimates came out. Pretty shocking stuff.

Thoughts:

New York's "modest" growth is still numerically larger than every other city's. No one's catching its city proper in our lifetimes, if ever.

Phoenix is really nipping at Philadelphia's heels again, and should officially overtake next year, if current growth rates hold

Chicago--wow.

San Antonio is booming, and should also cross 1.5 million next year. Also a threat to overtake Phoenix (Philadelphia, for sure) in less than 20 years, if growth rates remain the same for both (which they probably won't)

Seattle and Denver are neck-and-neck, city proper-wise. Denver might overtake next year, if trends hold.

Washington, D.C. has overtaken Boston as third most populous city proper in the Northeast (or the BosWash Corridor, for you Southern debaters).

Dallas grew by 9,236 in the 2010 census. According to this estimate last year alone it grew 19,642. Glad to see it getting denser.

Oh Chicago, I defend the city when I can, but the population loss I am starting to understand. i am actually moving in 2017 moving from Chicago to Miami for several reasons.

I don't think Chicago will ever get bad like Detroit, St. Louis or Cleveland but honestly, other cities are going to rise above it, and I don't mean in population but in all other aspects.

It's interesting that Houston is still pushing high numbers during a time period where oil prices weren't doing so well.

I think too many people point too much emphasis on oil.

Probably as of July 1, 2015, right? If so, I can understand that. I would think you'll see different numbers come next May. I'm more interested in seeing this growth in the inner loop.

What are you starting to understand about the population loss of Chicago? It lost population last decade but no one batted an eye. Why all the hysteria now?
