Rust Belt Cities Lose Most in Population, Census Report Finds
Jobs are a top reason for relocation in the United States. Big cities are retaining more residents, while former high-growth areas such as the South, West, and Florida are slowing. Growth in Phoenix; Atlanta; Albuquerque, New Mexico; Las Vegas; and Jacksonville, Florida dropped by as much as 2.4 percent since 2006, largely due to high foreclosure levels.
Four of the 10 fastest-growing cities last year were in Texas. Frisco, McKinney, Round Rock, and Lewisville saw population gains of between 3.3 percent and 6.2 percent. Frisco, outside Dallas, gained 6.2 percent in its population.
New Orleans was the fourth fastest-growing city last year. It gained 5.4 percent in its population from the previous year. But its figure of 354,850 residents was significantly below the 485,000 people it counted in 2000 before Hurricane Katrina.
New York is the most populous city with 8.4 million residents, followed by Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, and San Antonio.
