Chicago's population down third year in a row — but we're still ...

Seattle moved into the top spot after registering yet another year of remarkable growth in 2017. The city’s population hit an estimated 725,000 gaining 17,500 people from

New numbers released by the U.S. Census Bureau show Jacksonville is leading the state in growth. Those cities' population estimates now stand at 198,829 and 116,986, respectively. She says while jobs have been added to the area, the economy hasn't been growing as quickly.

Since 2010, Eugene's housing growth has outpaced Salem's by about 2,000 dwelling units, Rynerson said. "If you look at every single metro area in IL except for Chicago, income growth lags the rest of the nation by a significant amount".

An analysis of the latest figures done by Frey at the Brookings Institution found that Chicago was one of 16 larger cities across the country that lost population, and it had the third-largest drop.

Connecticut's population change a year ago was the ninth-worst in the country. "That's a growth rate of 1.6 percent". But experts warn that doesn't necessarily mean the exodus from the city and state is about to end.

"I don't think 100,000 by 2020 is inconceivable", Bend Senior Planner Damian Syrnyk said. "The Great Recession put the brakes on dispersal to small metro areas, suburbs and the Sun Belt; but those trends are beginning to resume again".

Lawrence Yun, chief economist at the National Association of Realtors, said Texas and Arizona cities have gained population because of relatively low home prices and relatively strong job creation that he attributes to low-tax policies drawing more employers. And Illinois dropped from fifth-largest to sixth-largest state in 2017.

When it's finished, the development would add slightly more than 600 people to Owensboro's population.

Akron city officials have discussed plans to encourage growth in the city, implementing a goal to bring back the city's population to 250,000 by the year 2050. Of the state's biggest five cities, Fort Worth also grew the fastest from 2016 to 2017.

Those losses have affected Clinton County, dropping the county's population by 2,106 since the 2010 census.

One factor, based on earlier census releases, is that more people have been moving out of New York City and Los Angeles, making it harder for those cities to maintain population growth just through births and immigration.

Eugene grew 8 percent over that period, when it added an estimated 12,486 residents.
