Census: Chicago's population drops 3rd year in a row

Posted May 25, 2018

Newly released population estimates from the Census Bureau show the nation's continuing shift south and west, with startling one-year growth in some parts of the Lone Star State, and anemic figures in the Northeast, including CT. It's certainly a piece of it. Redmond's population estimate topped 30,000, reaching 30,011 by last July, while Prineville crossed the 10,000-resident threshold, with an estimate of 10,055.

Aseal Tineh, an associate policy analyst for the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning, said the economy has played a role in the declining population. Aberdeen anchors an area of growth that extends to the south.

"Chicago hasn't been able to recover as quickly as our peer regions", she said. 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. For instance, the Census Bureau reported past year that Chicago's population had fallen by 8,638 residents in 2016.

The bureau's 2017 estimate for Suffolk is below its 2010 Census count of 1,493,350.

La Pine's population grew by a modest 40 people over the year, to an estimated 1,864, while Sisters grew to 2,701 residents by last July. But this year, the 2016 number was updated to reflect a loss of 4,879 residents.

Census figures show Jacksonville has grown by 68,000 residents.

Fort Worth surpassed Indianapolis, Ind., becoming the 15th largest city in the United States with a population of 874,168.

"I don't think 100,000 by 2020 is inconceivable", Bend Senior Planner Damian Syrnyk said. And Illinois dropped from fifth-largest to sixth-largest state in 2017.

But City Manager Bill Parrish said he doesn't see the city and rural areas as competing for population.

McCracken County, however, saw slight growth, from 65,342 in 2016 to 65,385 in 2017.

Seattle's rate of growth a year ago - impressive as it was - represents a slight slowdown from 2016, when the city registered a record 3.1 percent increase. That's less than a 1% drop from 2016, when the estimate put Detroit's population at around 675,000.

The Census Bureau estimates annual population changes by using birth and death certificate data as well as address changes on tax returns.
