New data from the U.S. Census Bureau puts the Richmond population at 223,170 people as of July 2016. This is an increase of over 1% from last year, and up almost 19,000 from the 2010 count of 204,214.

The city’s population peaked at just over 249,000 in 1970, fell to a low under 190,000 sometime in the mid-1990s, and began to gain traction again in the mid-2000s. It was only in 2014 that the population of the East End began to rise again after falling since at least 1990.
