Chicago lost more population than any other US city in 2016, according to a new Census report.

But Denver saw gains of 18,582 people the previous year (ending July 1, 2015) and 17,607 the year before that (ending July 1, 2014).

"Since the 2010 Census, the population in large southern cities grew by an average of 9.4 percent", Toukabri said.

Charleston Mayor Danny Jones said he's not too concerned by last year's drop.

Hoover grew by about 4 percent or 3,359 people since 2010.

The census data suggests 50 people moved out of OR to other communities and Maumee lost 61 residents. "These are calculation estimates based on trends and sampling the census bureau does for the American Community Survey, which is a low count or sample survey", he said.

Tim McNulty, spokesman for Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto, said the numbers are "statistically meaningless" and no indication that the city is sliding back to the days when people left the city in droves for better jobs.

The Tehran governor's office announced the results of the council elections, which were held alongside the presidential vote, on May 21.

"I think it's nice, I think it's great. Majority white community areas, majority Latino community areas, community areas with no majority, racially-mixed community areas, and then the one Asian community area all gained population", he said.

Chelsea city councilman Casey Morris attributes the growth to the small city being family friendly and to the availability of affordable housing.

Unsurprisingly, the state's biggest cities added the most people in the past year.

The numbers, which were tabulated between July 1, 2015, and July 1, 2016, do not take into account any population loss caused by people moving after June's floods. Chicago lost 181,000 black residents between 2000 and 2010, according to census data.

The census bureau puts its current population at an even 100.

Texas suburbs made up half of the country's 10 fastest growing cities with three cities outside Houston and Dallas topping the list, according to the census figures. The city has lost 1,025 since the 2010 census.

The Census Bureau's new July 1, 2016 estimate is that Bend had 91,122 residents, up almost 5 percent from a year earlier.

Ten of the 15 fastest growing large US cities during that 12-month span were in the South, according to the Census Bureau. The lines begin to blur when counting off-campus residents.
