New York Population Declines By More Than 100K, Census Numbers Show

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- New numbers from the U.S. Census Bureau show a decline in New York's population.

The New York City Metro Area lost about 108,000 residents or about 0.5%.

That was a greater number than 2019 when population fell by about 60,000.

The census department says nationwide fewer people moved for job-related reasons since the pandemic hit, but they saw a rise in people moving to be closer to family.

The populations of Los Angeles, Chicago and San Francisco also declined.
