BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - A new report by an Indiana University research group says Indiana's four largest cities are in the midst of some big population increases.
The Indiana Business Research Center report says Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, Evansville and South Bend all saw population increases between 2010 and 2013 significantly larger than seen in previous years. The report released Thursday is based on U.S. Census Bureau population estimates the IU group analyzed.
The authors say Indianapolis added an average of about 7,200 residents annually from 2010 to 2013, nearly twice its pace from 2000 to 2010. Indiana's capital now has a population of about 843,000.
Fort Wayne had seen flat population growth, but it grew by nearly 900 residents annually from 2010 to 2013 and is now home to roughly 256,500 people.
