New census numbers show which Southern Illinois communities are shrinking

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

"It's entirely possible by the time the 2020 census comes around we will have 100,000 in Bend and if we are not there, we will be pretty close".

The U.S. city that added the most residents between 2016 and 2017 was San Antonio, which boosted its population by 24,208 people.

Dallas and Fort Worth, ranking at three and four respectively, have seen remarkable growth in the a year ago, but it's San Antonio that the bureau said is at the top of the list in terms of overall population growth. In fact, Chicago lags behind Los Angeles, the second-most-populous city, by more than a million residents. Places in the southeastern corner of the state - Sioux Falls and its suburbs to the south, as well as few places to the north of the state's largest city - show some of the most solid growth in the state.

The city's population hit an estimated 725,000, gaining 17,500 people from July 1, 2016, to July 1, 2017. There Jacksonville ranks 12th, just behind Dallas, San Jose, Calif., and Austin, and just ahead of San Francisco, Columbus and Fort Worth.

In Brooklyn, the only New York City borough to lose population a year ago, 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.

While Chicago lost almost 4,000 residents in 2017, that's less than the estimated loss of 4,879 residents the year before that, according to census figures. Past year it grew by more than a third of its population, making it the fastest-growing city, town or village in Florida.

While working on the city's urban growth boundary expansion in 2016, the city used the population data to predict 115,063 residents by 2028.

The largest gain of residents, in raw numbers, came in San Antonio with 1.5 million, a gain of 66 people a day.

New York City remains the nation's most populous by far in 2017, with an estimated population of 8,622,698. Peoria lost about 1,500 residents, according to census figures. Ten of the 15 fastest-growing cities in the US were located in the South - seven of them in Texas.

That increase was down from the previous year, when Phoenix led the nation by adding 32,113 people.

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.
