1,000 Residents a Month: DC's Population Rose Swiftly in 2014-2015: Figure 1

This morning, the U.S. Census Bureau released data that showed that the District of Columbia had the 14th-largest population increase for a 12-month period in 2014 and 2015.

From July 2014 to July 2015, DC gained 12,392 residents, which averages out to the 1,000-person-a-month population increase that is so often touted by city officials. The city’s population as of July 2015 sat at 672,228. During that same period, the city added just over 3,400 housing units.

New York City saw the largest population gain, with 55,211 new residents, while Texas had five cities in the top 15, and California had three. The next-largest population increase was a distant second behind that of New York, with Houston gaining 40,032 people.
