Big Cities Growing Faster

The population of the nation's cities grew 1.0 percent between 2010 and 2011, according to estimates by the Census Bureau. Interestingly, with a growth rate of 1.3 percent, large cities (with populations of 100,000 or more) grew faster than smaller cities. Among the nation's 285 large cities, only 22 lost population between 2010 and 2011.
