City Population Estimates Released: Jax Rank Drops

June 28, 2010 65 comments Open printer friendly version of this article Print Article

The fall of Florida's real estate market and the increasing popularity of urban living has caused Jacksonville to fall in the list of America's largest cities.



Despite having 720.3 fewer square miles than Jacksonville to work with, it is estimated that San Francisco (46.7 square miles) added 7,357 residents to its population over the last year. San Francisco has now surpassed Jacksonville to become the 12th largest city in the country.

In the meantime, with a well documented struggling urban core and a dead suburban real estate market, Jacksonville (767 square miles) added 3,627 people.
