Texas, Austin Suburbs Lead The Nation In Population Growth (Again)

A general view of the skyline of downtown Dallas. Dallas suburb Frisco Texas is listed as one of the fastest-growing large cities in the U.S. by the Census Bureau

According to data from the Census Bureau, Jacksonville was the 12th most populous city in the country in 2017.

The Census Bureau, in a news release, said that "eight of the 15 cities or towns with the largest population gains were located in the South in 2017, with three of the top five in Texas".

The gain here was more than those reported for Irvine, Calif., and Henderson, Nev.; and just behind those recorded for Atlanta, San Diego and Austin, Texas.

Phoenix grew by 24,036 residents between July 1, 2016, and July 1, 2017, the report said.

Chicago lost about 3,800 residents previous year but remains the third-largest city in the US, with 2.7 million residents, according to census estimates released Wednesday. But we leapfrogged Los Angeles into the 9th spot for population density among the 50 largest cities in the country, now with more than 8,600 people per square mile.

The Census Bureau's July 1, 2017 population estimate for Bend is well above the one released last fall by the Portland State University Population and Research Center.

Black Ops 4 won't have campaign, battle royale confirmed
There's another big part of what makes Fortnite so popular that Black Ops 4 isn't going to be able to match: Fortnite is free . As for the game's bread and butter, the core player vs. player multiplayer experience has seen some revamps, as well.

Over the past year, the bureau estimates Clinton has gone from 25,654 people to 25,480.

In Brooklyn, the only New York City borough to lose population past year, housing investors have driven away first-time buyers by snapping up the remaining affordable housing, according to an April report from the Center for NYC Neighborhoods, a public-private partnership that promotes affordable housing.

For San Antonio, that growth represents 1.6 percent, ranking 144th in percentage population growth out of the surveyed cities. That's a modest growth of 0.47 percent.

The conservative-leaning Illinois Policy Institute said the population drops, which have been seen across the state, are an indication that working-age people are "fleeing" the state.

Based on the March estimates, the state has grown 6.8 percent from the 814,180 residents who were counted for the 2010 census. The Chicago metropolitan area, which extends from the city to its suburbs and into parts of IN and Wisconsin, also has lost residents for three consecutive years. L.A., by the way, was the nation's No. 2 city for overall population behind New York City. San Antonio and Phoenix led the nation for total population growth, both adding over 24,000 people during the same time period. On the list of 15 cities nationwide with the most population growth, Dallas' increase of 18,935 people put it at No. 3, and Fort Worth was No. 4, with an increase of 18,664.
