Chicago only major US city to lose population from 2015 to 2016

Cedar Park population grew at 12th-fastest rate nationally in 2016

It said Conroe, Texas (near Houston), was the fastest-growing large city (population of 50,000 or more) between 2015 and 2016 at 7.8 percent, making its growth rate more than 11 times the nation's growth rate of 0.7 percent. New York State, like other Northeastern states, is continuing to lose population to other parts of the nation, an out-migration that has increased as the economy has improved, experts have said.

La Pine's new estimate, of 1,815 residents, is 140 more than PSU's estimate, while Sisters had 2,573 residents, according to the federal figure, 183 more people than Portland State estimated. Four of the top five are in Texas. "African-American community areas lost population, about 40,000 or so people".

"If the population has declined three years in a row, and the level has gotten higher each of those years-that's a moment to stop and ask, 'What's going on here?'" said Alden Loury, the Metropolitan Planning Council's director of research and evaluation.

Tom Cruise confirms 'Top Gun' sequel is in the works
The conversation ended with a look into Cruise's past when one Sunrise host asked the actor to comment on the Top Gun 2 rumors. Tom "Iceman" Kazanski, has previously floated the idea of reprising his role - should there ever be a sequel.

The Portland-Lewiston-South Portland statistical area, defined by the office as an area of urban population, grew 2.44 percent since 2010.

Newport County's population estimate now stands at 82,784, down 132 from the projection made previous year.

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. Round Lake Beach, Zion, Gurnee and Antioch are also decreasing in population. And thanks to business growth, Blake said they were actually able to cut taxes over the last two years. But with the slowing growth of big cities overall, experts aren't sure it will happen so soon.

'Dozens hurt' as Palestinians clash with Israeli troops
Hundreds of Palestinians took part in the march, leading to clashes in more than one location in Qalqilia governorate. Muataz Hussein Hilal died after the Israeli man shot into a crowd of people who were throwing rocks at his auto .

"I'm sure by the time they do the real census, when the real count is taken that we'll be well over 130,000", said New Haven Mayor Toni Harp. "So a lot of those lots that had been sitting empty are being filled by homes now".

Iowa, as a whole, added 12,696 residents since the previous year, with a new population estimate of 3,134,693.

The Census Bureau on Thursday released 2016population estimates for each town, county, and state in the United States. "To me, it feels like our population has been growing". Lake Forest's population has been nearly flat, gaining just six residents past year and losing only nine since 2010.
