Houston Slated To Become 3rd Largest City

If you're a Trivia Buff -
Houston looks to be on its way to becoming the country's third-largest city.

Growth in Chicago, which currently holds the title of the 3rd largest city, slowed to a crawl in 2014, based on recently-released estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau.

Meanwhile in Houston, the strong population growth for which it's known continued to persist.

"It isn't possible - it's probable that Houston will grow to be the country's third largest city," said Dowell Myers, a demographer at University of Southern California.
 

Houston's population, which now stands at 2.23 million, increased by an average 1.59 percent over the last four years
 

The growth discrepancy between the two cities was especially stark in 2014. Chicago added just 82 people, an infinitesimal increase of 0.003 percent. Houston, meanwhile, added nearly 36,000 new residents, increasing its population by 1.6 percent.

Chicago's lack of growth relative to Houston is pretty simple, Myers said. It's got considerably less land to grow into.

The 600 square miles (of Houston) contains 2.2 million people," Klineberg said. "Those four other cities in the same space contain 5.5 million people. It's a true issue of density."

Since most people move around a region for jobs and housing without much concern for which jurisdiction they're in, the city-level comparison is mostly relevant as an answer to the trivia question, "what is the country's third largest city?"
