Census Gives 25, 000 as Three-! Year Increase San Francisco Advances to -Rank as Eleventh City Oakland has Increased in popu lation nearly 25,000 during the past three years. i ' . " .; , This la indicated by new "census the as- conditions Prevailing in 1920 in the various localities are continuing. "According 'to this report, Oakland remains thirty-first on the list of the fifty, principal cities in America,' with an official rating, of 240,891 as against the 1920 census reporting showing 216,261. These figures vary from" those complied on the' first of the year by the, Oakland Chamber of Commerce, which gave Oakland r rating of 266,000, which would move the city up four places on the list. The figures of the Chamber of Commerce were based on actual conditions taken from the Industrial, commercial and housing departments and not based, as is the government report, on a simple ratio of increase based on former conditions. OAKLAND'S ADVANCE IS REMARKABLE. Oakland's advance is one of the most remarkable In the list of cities, according. to the Official census report In 1880 the census showed the population of the city at 1543; ten years later the figures are 10,600; in 1880, 34,555; in 1890, 48,682; in 1900, 66,960; in 1910, 150,174. and in 1920, 216,261. According to tne ratio, tne next official census In 1930 will find this city welVat the top of" the list, for, in the last two years, the increase Las averaged , more than 8000 a year, a greater advance than ever before recorded in' the census annals of the community. The .newi. governmental report shows several changes in the rela4 iivjB uiz9- ox uie turgor Afiivriuun cities, with San Francisco now in eleventh position fn the race for population- -honors, - although, its actual increase In persons ,has been but slightly in advance of the metropolis on the east site of the bay. : San Francisco rated 606,676 'In 1920 and the new government fig ures place its population at 539, 058. . LOS ANGELES GOES TO NINTH PLACE. The greatest advance In num bers . on the Pacific Coast again goes to Los Angeles, with' an increase of, 90,180, giving it a new rating of 666,853. , This pt the southern city at the head of Pacific .Coast municipalities and places it ahead of Pittsburg as the ninth on the list of largest cities. The new estimates show that eight of the fifty largest municipalities have replaced their nearest rivals, and that two have been shoved out of the fifty largest class. New York is shown to be approaching closely to the 6,000.-000 mark; Chicago is not far from the 8,000,000 mark; Philadelphia is neartng 2,000,000 and Detroit is near to 1,000,000. There have been no changes in the rank of the six largest cities. Baltimore has gone ahead of BostonV and now ranks as seventh largest city. Los Angeles has passed Pittsburgh and taken ninth rank. , San Francisco has grown larger than Buffalo and goes into eleventh place. MINNEAPOLIS HAS . GONE TO SIXTEENTH. Minneapolis . has . outgrown two. cities, Cincinnati and New Orleans, and now is sixteenth. Columbus, Ohio, has passed Providence and now ranks twenty-se enui; Birmingham, San Antonio and Dallas also have forged ahead. Scranton and Peterson, forty- seventh and forty-ninth cities, re spectively In 1920, have been forced out of the first fifty cities Into fifty-third and fifty-fourth places by Norfolk and dprlngfield, Mass. The rank of , cities below the first-fifty and-which in 1920 had 100,000 or more populations shows many changes, tnose wnicn outstripped their nearest rivals Includ ing Fort Worth and Salt Laae City. The estimates for the sixty-eight cities In the 100,000 class, in 1926 show probable totals as of July 1. 1923, as follows New York. .9Z7,Zi, cmcago, 2,886.121;' -'Philadelphia,. 1,922,788; Detroit, f J5r,66lrCleveland,i J88,- U; St. Louis. $03,853; Baltimore; 778,860., Boston, 770,409; ,i Los Angeles. 666,352; Pittsburg. 613,-442:.
