Charleston population continues slow bleed, 2016 Census shows

Cedar Park population grew at 12th-fastest rate nationally in 2016

New numbers from the U.S. Census Bureau show Phoenix edged ahead of Philadelphia - the city now has more than 1.6 million residents.

Earlier this year the Census Bureau reported that Pennsylvania lost population year-to-year, so it is not surprising that more than 68 percent of the state's 2,570 municipalities also showed a population decrease.

Los Angeles added 27,173, the second-largest growth during the one-year span.

New Haven officials aren't anxious about the short-term estimates. "We're not going backwards anymore - we've stopped that". It's also the fourth-fastest growing city in the entire USA, the Census says. The city's population had grown as high as 83,040 in 2011 before dipping the next three subsequent years, bottoming out at 82,571 in 2014.

According to a spokesperson, 50,000 is the population where the Census Bureau is required to track data of a city.

Rockville Centre gained 391 people, the greatest numerical increase on the Island.

They say the crowd converged on the vehicle after it struck some protesters. Dozens of protesters suffocated due to tear gas inhalation.

North Sioux City increased from 2,718 to 2,731 previous year. Since 2010, the population in large Southern cities grew by an average of 9.4 percent.

On the other end of the spectrum, Volo, Hawthorn Woods and Vernon Hills were among the Lake County communities that gained the most population previous year, with Volo increasing by 222 residents, Hawthorn Woods by 219 and Vernon Hills by 56. That puts the city at its highest population total in the past seven years, 109 higher than in 2010.

"The fact that the city's losing population, despite a lot of the advances that are being made - particularly in and around downtown - is a sign that the city and the direction of the city can't rest on downtown", he said.

The Pittsburgh metropolitan area was home to 2.65 million people in 1980, according to Census data. Over the next five years, the city will begin expanding into its new urban growth boundary, building out and sometimes up to accommodate Bend's rapid growth.

Still, its rate of growth slipped from a high of 2.5 in 2010-11 to 1.6 previous year, though that was less precipitous than the decline in counties such as Montgomery, Fairfax, and Prince George's, where growth has flattened over the past decade. Small Midwestern cities saw populations dip by 0.3 percent, while small towns in the South and West both grow, rising 0.2 percent and 0.89 percent, respectively. But the city added just 263 residents from 2015 to 2016. South Dakota grew 7,535 to 865,454.

But remember, the Census Bureau's figures are just estimates.
