I agree. Mostly what we get I would call "innocent ignorance." It's usually along the lines of a backhanded compliment like, "You won't believe this is" or "Who knew this existed in" flyover country, Columbus, Ohio, etc

Our reputation is just that we don't have one at all, or that of a boring, white bread nowheresville with nothing to do. Either can be corrected easily enough

It might be ironic, really. Dry New York humor

So these city population estimates should be coming out any time now, right?

^ I don't know about those city population estimates, but apparently U-Haul's annual migration trends report just came out.  Columbus rose one spot and is now in the top 10 as a destination for U-Haul moves:

There really is something exciting about census releases; hard to explain why, but I'm absolutely fascinated by everything to do with population growth, stagnation, depletion, demographic changes, etc.

879,170. A gain of over 15,000.  Still just barely ahead of Fort Worth and Charlotte. Over 15,000 more than Indianapolis now.

Of the 25 largest cities in the US, Columbus was number FOUR in growth rate over the past year.

-Seattle
-Fort Worth
-Charlotte

then Columbus. Growth rate of 1.79%

*Renn could have at least mentioned Columbus being number four on the list while babbling on about other cities. *hmmph!*

Approximately 5,000 behind San Francisco and 13,000 behind Jacksonville.

Only Midwest city in the top 15 fastest growing cities.

Well I searched and did not see any thread for this particular area and there is one for Cleveland, so maybe we can use this one for Columbus without having any problems with any city vs city stuff and just talk about our own area?

I am impressed with the growth-over 31,000 for the metro in only one year and something like 22,000 for Franklin County. I just wonder how much of that number will be in Cbus city limits?

https://factfinder.census.gov/faces/tableservices/jsf/pages/productview.xhtml?src=bkmk

Around 70% tends to end up in Columbus itself, so my guess is that the city grew between 15K-17K 2016-2017, putting the population between 875,000-877,000. However, because previous-year estimates have been adjusted upward for Columbus, I could easily see the city hitting 880,000 come the May estimate for July 1, 2017.  If so, the city is probably edging closer to 900,000 at this point in 2018.  At that rate, 1 million would be hit around 2025.   

Just want to point out how accurate this was.

Yes it was very accurate to less than 1,000. Given the location of Columbus, to gain over 15,000 people in one year is amazing growth. If that growth continues (and the estimates are correct) then Columbus will be at 915,000 or more by the 2020 census.
