Many of our cities showed spikes in population between 2010-2011.

NYC showed a whopping ~58,000 increase
LA showed an increase of ~24,000
Chicago showed an increase of ~10,000
Houston with a very impressive ~37,000
Philly with ~10,000 increase

and the list goes on.

Keep it up people.

Good to hear for Chicago and Philly, especially. Detroit is still estimated at a loss, but looks like an estimated increase for Pittsburgh, too.

In terms of state population growth in percentage terms, Texas grew the fastest again between 2010-2011.

By now we should be very weary of census bureau estimates as they appear to be totally wrong once the actual census is taken....sometimes I think interim estimates are politically motivated so some areas can get increased federal spending.

New Orleans was the fastest growing city by percentage rate, which I think is fantastic as proof that the city is finally starting to grow as a region again.

The City also grew by about 17,000 people.

Kudos to the other cities too.

Yep, this new estimate places Boston 20,000 people bellow the lasts pre-census estimate from the bureau. However, I tend to think the estimates are more accurate than the census itself, particularly when it comes to cities.
