Map of the Month – May 2019
Phoenix is #1 Again!
For 50+ years Phoenix, now the 5th largest city in the US, has (almost) always been one of the top 3 growth cities in the US. On May 23, the US Census Bureau released the latest statistics for July 1, 2007 through July 1, 2018 and, for the third year in a row, Phoenix had the highest numeric population growth in the US adding 25,288 residents (including births over deaths).
Below is this month’s map comparing Phoenix’s numeric growth with our 14 nearest competitors.
Another metric also released was percentage growth; also, for cities over 50,000. Buckeye was # 1 with a growth rate of 8.5%; as compared with Phoenix at 1.5%.
Maricopa City (Pinal County) was one of 10 Census Bureau “places” that first exceeded 50,000 in population as of July 1, 2018
Take your pick. Either way, Phoenix and its Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) which includes Pinal County, are still setting records!
