Information about the most populous states in the U.S. changes from month to month, because there is a small difference in numbers between the biggest metropolises at the top; to complement the data, we came up with the 12 Fastest Growing Metropolitan Areas in America in 2015. If you are wondering about the current situation, specifically which cities are the biggest in the U. S. you can find that out here: The 20 Biggest Cities in the United States.
