Losing population

San Francisco has one of the largest population dips in the US, new census data shows

The cities that gained population were all in the West and South.

San Francisco saw a 6.3% decrease in population during this time, the largest percentage decline of any major metropolitan area across the country. It was also a much greater dip than other Bay Area cities. Daly City saw a decline of 3.2% and San Mateo fell by 3%.

The next greatest decline in population in a major city was New York City, which lost 3.5%. Notably, Manhattan, when the city is isolated by borough, lost 6.6% of residents.
