In terms of population, New York City is the largest city in the country. Since the United States was founded, it has consistently been the most populous city in the country. Its population has grown by 10% since the last census, and its 2.3 million residents speak over 90 different languages. Los Angeles is the closest competitor to New York in terms of size, with a population of 21.6 million. However, both cities are ranked highly according to their size and population.
While Chicago is the third biggest city in the country today, it will only rank fifth by 2046. While Chicago will experience 8% growth in the next few decades, it won’t keep up with the runaway growth of Sunbelt metropolises. It’ll be one of the Sunbelt metros, with over ten million residents, in a few decades. Houston will be the fourth biggest city in the U.S. in 2046, with a population increase of more than six million people in thirty years. Houston is also set to be one of the five metropolises to break the ten million barrier in the next few decades.
Phoenix is on track to become one of the biggest cities in the United States by 2046. By then, it will have more than seven million residents, surpassing the current population of Dallas. The city’s population has grown steadily over the last decade, with its percentage of Latino and Asian/Pacific Island languages roughly equal. Phoenix’s rents increased by 45% from 2005 to 2015, while its population increased by nearly $1,834 per year.
