——————

With an unprecedented boom in apartment construction underway in Seattle, it’s no surprise that the city’s population is growing–and fast.

According to just-released Census data, Seattle had the 14th largest population jump among all U.S. cities between 2011 and 2012. In that one year time frame, Seattle added 12,638 people, bringing the city’s total population to 634,535.

New York City had by far the largest population increase in the nation, but the bulk of the top-growing cities were in the Southwest. Texas had five cities in the Top 15, and California had three.

Seattle is more populous now than at any point in its history. The city has added about 25,000 people since the 2010 Census, and more than 100,000 since 1990.
