St. Louis Sees Population Growth...Again

For the second consective year, the Census Bureau has revised the population estimate for the City of St. Louis, resulting in a continued rise in population since the 1950 Census.

The article highlights the trend among urban centers that have experience increased population growth after decades of losing population. While the increase is small and the Census Bureau's figures are only estimates, it is a hopeful sign from a city that has experienced a drastic population decline since 1950.
