NEW DATA: NASHVILLE REGION STILL GROWING BY 100 PEOPLE A DAY

Nashville is still booming, and the pace hasn't slowed.

New population estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau show the Nashville metro statistical area added 36,337 people during the one-year stretch that ended July 1, 2016, meaning the region grew by an average of 100 people a day over those 12 months.

The overall population of the 14-county Nashville region grew from 1,828,961 to 1,865,298, a 2 percent increase.

That closely matches the 36,435 net population increase that Nashville had from 2014 and 2015 — also an average of 100 people a day — and the 34,072 net population increase from 2013 to 2014, an average of 93 people a day.

From 2010 to 2016, Nashville grew an average 32,403 people a year, a pace of about 89 people daily. The overall population has jumped by 11.6 percent during those six years.
