US census: The top 10 cities with the highest population growth
Washington, DC – US census data showed that the number of people living in the country’s capital city of Washington grew by 6.3% in 2016, but it also showed that more people are moving to smaller and cheaper places.
The city of Los Angeles was the next-biggest gainer with a 1.8% growth, followed by San Francisco with 1.7%.
In New York, which had the second-highest growth in the US, the population growth was less than 0.1% compared with 1% in 2015.
But the largest cities of the country had the largest decreases in population, as the number per 1,000 people fell by almost 1.6% in 2017.
Los Angeles, which is the city with the most people, had the smallest decline in population with a 0.6%, followed by Detroit (0.5%), Chicago (0,5%) and Houston (0).
Washington, DC, has the largest population of 1.9 million, followed closely by New York (1.8 million), Boston (1,7 million) and Washington DC (1 million).
The US census is one of the most widely used in the world and the numbers can be used to calculate population growth, which can also be used as a measure of poverty and inequality.
However, the numbers have come under scrutiny in recent years due to the increasing number of undocumented immigrants in the nation’s cities, which has raised concerns about what they could mean for economic growth.
The census has become a major source of data in US politics and the US has been pushing to have it made mandatory in every state, but President Donald Trump has said he would not go that far.
The US Census Bureau reported that the nation had a population of about 1.5 billion on Thursday.
It is one the most comprehensive national datasets and is widely used by government and researchers to look at demographic trends.
However the growth in Washington’s population has come at a time when the US economy has been struggling and the unemployment rate has risen.
