The Census Bureau will release additional population estimates by age, sex, race, and Hispanic origin for the nation, states, and counties on June 21.

Notably, Fort Worth - which has maintained a more steady annual population gain - surpassed Indianapolis, Indiana, to become the 15th-largest city in the nation. Houston, which clocks out at 2.3 million residents, only grew by an estimated 8,235. That gain put the River City 13th on a list of the 15 large USA cities with the largest numerical population increases during that period. "We knew that the state continued to lose population, as did Cook County and now we see the city".

"The population growth has been consistent for the past few years for Maricopa County, and that's largely because of gains from net domestic migration as well as natural increase, meaning more births than deaths, and net global migration", she said.

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

Seattle's rate of growth previous year - impressive as it was - represents a slight slowdown from 2016, when the city registered a record 3.1 percent increase. The city's population was estimated at 57,957 residents in 2012 with a growth rate of 4.7 percent, and it was expected to have 61,238 residents in 2013 and a growth rate of 5.6 percent. When looking at percentage change, 10 of the 15 fastest-growing large cities were located in the South, the bureau said.

Cleveland's population dropped about 2,000 from 2016 to 2017, bringing its total to 385,525. She says while jobs have been added to the area, the economy hasn't been growing as quickly. "Following state trends, the large cities that continue to see the fastest growth are in Middle Tennessee".

Half of the 14 fastest-growing cities in America past year were in Texas, and most of the other quickly expanding communities were scattered elsewhere in the south and the west, as booming municipalities added thousands - or tens of thousands - of new residents. 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. "That is a pretty big role in the population change". In every year since the last census count, the bureau has estimated at least some incremental growth for the state.
