The city of Denver gained fewer people in the year that ended July 1, 2016 than in previous years, according to new U.S. Census Bureau data.

Toledo's population was estimated at 278,508 as of last summer - a loss of 1,168 residents from the previous year, the U.S. Census Bureau reported today.

Nationally, New York City remained the nation's most populous city, with 8.5 million people, and had the fourth-largest numerical increase from 2015 to 2016, gaining 21,171 people.

Two other Utah cities were in the top 50 fastest-growing large cities, which the Census Bureau defines as cities with more than 50,000 residents.

North Charleston ranked as the third largest city in the state with 109,298 people. The city's population was estimated at 105,000 in July.

"It's just sad to see that people have to leave the city to protect their own future cost of living", he said.

"Up until now we really didn't know where this city growth was going; it nearly came out of the blue, and it surprised a lot of people", he said.

But the city also has experienced a boom in residential high-rise construction in and around downtown, putting people into gleaming buildings including Aqua and Wolf Point.

Houston, which grew by 18,666 residents, remains closely behind the Second City with a population of 2,303,482.

Fourteen of Livingston County's 17 towns experienced population loss, according to the report.

The coal, oil and gas-producing areas of the state continue to struggle, according to the census release. Northeastern cities showed 1.8 percent growth, while populations of Midwestern cities grew by 3.0 percent. Detroit lost 3,541 residents from 2015 to 2016, and Milwaukee lost 4,366.
