Cities are growing

Between 2010 and 2012, the nation's largest cities (with populations of 50,000 or more) grew 2.1 percent. This was nearly double the 1.1 percent growth elsewhere. During the same time, the USDA reports population loss in nonmetropolitan areas--the first ever recorded. For more about this trend, see City Growth by Size, and Why Metros Are Growing, and Population Change along the Rural-Urban Continuum.
