Phoenix is Fastest-Growing City 5 Years in a Row

This past year, Phoenix welcomed 25,194 new residents, this is slightly below the 10-year average of 25,912. Phoenix continues to take the largest share of Maricopa County’s population growth, with nearly four of every 10 new county residents choosing to live in the city of Phoenix. Maricopa County added more population than 36 states. Phoenix’s population growth also exceeded Austin, Texas, and Denver, Colorado, combined growth numbers.

The U.S. Census Bureau’s 2020 estimates reports that Phoenix’s population of 1.7 million and has added more new residents than any other city. Phoenix is still the fifth-largest U.S. city behind New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Houston. Population losses in Chicago and Los Angeles were about the same amount that Phoenix gained, according to the Census. Phoenix leads the country in 10-year pollution growth by adding almost 260,000 people since 2010.

Queen Creek topped Arizona in percentage population growth (10.0 percent) with its population jumping from 55,000 in 2019 to 60,097 in 2020. That placed the town with the seventh-fastest growing percentage in the U.S. Buckeye was second in Arizona with a 7 percent growth rate. Tucson remains Arizona’s second largest city with its population growing 0.8 percent to 553,571, a gain of 4,610 people. Mesa had a 1.9 percent growth, with a current population of 528,129.
