  • The city of Austin's population continues toward 1 million residents

The statewide trend for South Dakota - based on the numbers released in March - showed an estimated growth of a smidgen under 1 percent between July 2016 and July 2017.

Notably, Fort Worth - which has maintained a more steady annual population gain - surpassed Indianapolis, Indiana, to become the 15th-largest city in the nation.

For now Chicago keeps its rank as the third-most-populous city with 2.7 million residents, compared with No. 4 Houston with 2.3 million, census figures show.

Five of the top 15 cities with the largest numeric increase in population were in Texas as well, with San Antonio in the No. 1 spot, Dallas at No. 3, Forth Worth at No. 4, Frisco at No. 9 and Austin at No. 12. And in that time, the city would need more than 16,000 new housing units, Syrnyk said.

The Detroit News reports that utility hookup records say the city has 3,000 more occupied homes than a year ago.

"The growth right now is on the fringe of the city", he said.

Chicago's population stood at an estimated 2,716,450 as of July 1 past year, compared with 2,720,275 the same day in 2016.

Bend, Ore., weighed in with a 4.3 percent growth rate, pushing the central OR city's population to 94,520. Rounding out the state's top three for 2017 are Murfreesboro, with an increase of 3.8 percent, and Clarksville, with 2.5 percent. It gained 13,470 people for a total 2017 population of 177,286.

But here's some perspective: Seattle's population increased by 114,000 in the first seven years of this decade - that's around the same amount it grew in the previous 30 years, back to 1980.

Tulsa is the second-largest city in the state after Oklahoma City. Frisco, New Braunfels and Pflugerville topped the overall national rankings, and Georgetown (No. 6), McKinney (No. 9), Flower Mound (No. 11) also made the cut.

Despite all the new loft apartments and other development activity in certain core neighborhoods, the city of Detroit continues to lose population. Its annual projections are issued after researchers review responses to questions posed to city officials across OR in regard to changes in housing stock and "group quarters" populations living in places such as college dormitories, nursing homes and jails.

In June 2018, the Census Bureau will release 2017 population estimates by age, sex, race and Hispanic origin for the nation, states and counties.
