City of Cincinnati’s population increases in latest Census numbers
The number of Cincinnatians rose to 309,513 in 2022 from 308,685 in 2021, an increase of 828 people, according to census estimates, and just 48 fewer people than where it started the 2020s.
The city’s population fell by about 1,000 people between 2020 and 2021, a common occurrence for urban areas as people sought out more space in the suburbs, exurbs and rural areas of the country during the pandemic.
Cincinnati is the 64th-largest city in the country, with Irvine, Calif., ahead of it at No. 63 and Santa Ana, Calif., at No. 65.
In terms of Cincinnati’s Midwest and southern peer cities, Indianapolis, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Louisville, Milwaukee and St. Louis all lost population, while Nashville and Columbus grew.
In Ohio, Cincinnati was one of only five cities that saw population growth – Newark, Columbus, Middletown and Elyria were the others. Middletown added 149 people, going from 51,080 to 51,229.
