Waverly continued its strong growth, with census estimates putting its July 1 population at 3,838, up about 50 people from a year earlier.

Houston is the fourth most populous city in the country, with San Antonio in seventh, Dallas (1.3 million) at No. 9, and Austin at No. 11.

"San Antonio tops the list with the largest population gain with an increase of over 24,200 people - an average of 66 people per day between 2016 and 2017", said Amel Toukabri, a demographer in the Census Bureau's population division. Phoenix placed second, followed by Dallas, Forth Worth and Los Angeles. Places in the southeastern corner of the state - Sioux Falls and its suburbs to the south, as well as few places to the north of the state's largest city - show some of the most solid growth in the state.

"The population growth has been consistent for the past few years for Maricopa County, and that's largely because of gains from net domestic migration as well as natural increase, meaning more births than deaths, and net worldwide migration", she said. The city's population was estimated at 63,574 residents with a growth rate of 3.7 percent in 2014 and 65,945 residents with a growth rate of 3.6 percent in 2015. Camanche ranks as the 92nd-biggest city in Iowa. "That means Bend would need to grow by 5,480 people between July 1, 2017 and April 1, 2020".

The Tulsa World reports that recent census estimates show Oklahoma City grew by 0.7 percent to more than 643,600 residents during the year-period ending July 1.

Syrnky said the census and Portland State estimates are critical for the work done at the city. It gained 13,470 people for a total 2017 population of 177,286.

All other Central Oregon cities have also increased in population and two reached new milestones.

Between July 1, 2016, and July 1, 2017, Utah was the fastest-growing state in terms of housing units, with an increase of 2.1 percent.

Still, what was once a flood of population loss over more than five decades has now slowed to a trickle.

U.S. Census Bureau says Chicago's population has decreased for the third consecutive year. New Braunfels and Pflugerville follow Frisco at Nos. "That is a pretty big role in the population change". That's a drop of about 2,300 people - a little lower than the previous year's loss and a 10th of the rate of population loss of the 2000s.

What the USA and North Korea mean when they talk about 'denuclearization'
And if North Korea truly has completed its nuclear program, as it says it has, then it no longer needs an active test site anyway. Russian Federation announced Wednesday that Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will travel to North Korea for a visit on May 31.
