The City’s population has grown again. So says the US Census Bureau.
According to the Census Bureau, the newest population estimate for the City is 352,572.
Those of you who follow these things know that the Bureau’s original estimate for the City of St. Louis was a little lower. But the Bureau allowed us to challenge its estimate and (for the third straight year) accepted our number.
The numbers have now been published on the Census Bureau’s web site: City population.
After five straight decades of decline, three straight years of growth is good news. Even more encouraging is the fact that the building boom in our neighborhoods shows no signs of slowing down.
