Population Loss in Big Cities

8 out of 10 of the largest U.S cities suffered population loss during the first year of the pandemic. Between July of 2020 and 2021, New York lost over 305,000 people. San Francisco faced the largest rate of loss, at 6.3% of its 2020 population. There were population estimates released by the U.S. Census Bureau and “whether the virus has permanently altered the urban landscape of America remains an open question.”
