The U.S. Census Bureau says the population of Columbus now ranks ahead of San Francisco.

Population estimates released this week show Columbus has nearly nine thousand more residents, but the metropolitan area of San Francisco remains twice as large. Columbus now has just under 900 thousand people, which keeps it the 14th largest city in the country. Other Ohio cities showing growth included Dayton, Akron, and Cincinnati. Cleveland, Toledo, and Canton saw significant declines.
