Fastest growing city in Ohio.

Alissa Rose

Ohio is the 7th largest state in the country. And approximately two-thirds of Ohio's counties have lost their populations in the past decade. And at the same time, rapidly growing areas such as Franklin County remained to connect citizens.

Ohio's various cities have encountered doubled growth over the last ten years. And the population grew by 2.3% to about 11.9 million.

According to the report published by the U.S. Census Bureau, Columbus is one of the rapidly growing large metropolitan areas.

Now the population of Columbus is 905,748, which is 15% more than 787,033 in 2010.

Officials expect more than a million people to move to Central Ohio in the coming 20 to 25 years.

The city will need to think about how to accommodate so many people. In such a development, that represents both huge opportunities and potential problems.

Columbus is becoming a more diverse city, with white residents falling from 61.5% to 53.2% and the white population falling from 483,677 to 482,058.

While Columbus's black population increased by 17.8% to 259,483, the Asian population increased by 76% to 56,218, and the Latino population increased by 58% to 70,179.

Columbus City Council President Shannon Hardin said that "Columbus is where people want to live in the Midwest, and we should be excited about it. We need to make sure that growth is good for everyone, the people who have been here and the people who will be here in the next few years."
