Oklahoma City is one of only 14 American cities where the population grew by more than 100,000 between 2010 and 2020, as almost two-thirds of Oklahoma counties were losing residents.

Oklahoma City added 101,055 people since the 2010 Census, the U.S. Census Bureau reported Thursday.

The wider Oklahoma City statistical metro area, which includes seven central Oklahoma counties, grew by 172,708, a 13.8% change. Much of that growth occurred in Canadian County, which saw a 33.6% population increase and was 27th in percentage growth out of more than 3,000 American counties.

Trends in Oklahoma were reflected nationally, with small counties shrinking and urban counties growing.
