I am not sure if someone already posted this, but it is interesting how some cities shot up the list and how others dropped down.


2010 Census numbers:


1. Houston 2,099,451 Increase: 145,820 Position: stayed the same
2. Pasadena 149,043 Increase: 7,369 Position: stayed the same

3. Pearland 91,252 Increase: 53,612 Position: Jumped from 9th to 3rd
4. League City 83,560 Increase: 38,116 Position: Jumped from 7th to 4th

5. Sugar Land 78,817 Increase: 15,489 Position: Dropped from 4th to 5th
6. Baytown 71,802 Increase: 5,372 Position: Dropped from 3th to 6th
7. Missouri City 67,358 Increase: 14,445 Position: Dropped from 6th to 7th

8. Conroe 56,207 Increase:19,396 Position: Jumped from 10th to 8th
9. Galveston 47,743 Increase: -9,504 Position: Dropped from 5th to 9th
10. Texas City Increase: 45,099 Position: Dropped from 8th to 10th




Other Cities:
11. Friendswood 35,805
12. La Porte 33,800
13. Deer Park 32,010
14. Rosenberg 30,618
15. Lake Jackson 26,849
16. Alvin 24,236
17. Angleton 18,862
18. Dickinson 18,680
19. Bay City 17,614
20. South Houston 16,983

I am not sure where the Woodlands or Greater Katy would fall if they were cities.

Pearland and League City really shot up wow

Sad to see Galveston (once the largest city in Texas) still losing people and now only the 9th largest city on the metro

Nice info! I was looking for Katy, but I forgot it's smaller than the Katy area.

HtownLove, are you going to be able to find out The Woodlands and Katy? BTW, I really think Conroe has more than the official census count. No one has posted that yet, so you will get a +1 in about a day or so.

Katy is a tiny little town. The greater Katy area and the woodlands are unincorporated area so they are not included on city rankings.

The greater Katy area would be number 2 on the list with about 200k-250K people.

The Woodlands would be 3rd or 4th with between 100K and 150K

I also think that Pearland's actual number is higher because of unincorporated area that may not be included in its city limits number. I think the Pearland number should be around 120K

The Woodlands is considered a CDP. That should be posted correct?

Its complicated, they are in Houston's ETJ (I think the Woodlands is also in two other ETJ's). They need to be released in order to incorporate. I think the Woodlands have been given the go ahead, Greater Katy is made up of a bunch of developments so it is not as cohesive municipally as the Woodlands.

The Woodlands has until 2014(I think) to incorporate according to the newly formed(about 5 years old) board of The Woodlands Township. It would be better if it was a part of the city of Houston IMHO(That was George Phydias Mitchell's original intent upon its full development). P.S., Thanks, A&M!

I think it would be nice if The Woodlands can incorporate.
