BOSTON – The population of the Providence-Warwick metropolitan area grew by 522 in the past two years, according to new population estimates released by the U.S. Census Bureau.

Between April 2010 and July 2012, the population of the Providence metro area rose by 522, or 0.03 percent.

The Census Bureau estimates that 1,601,374 citizens lived in the metro area in July, an increase from the 1,600,852 reported for April 2010.

The 1.6 million residents earned the Providence area the title of 38th most populated metro area in the United States. Currently, there are 52 U.S. metro areas with populations more than one million.

To the north, Boston ranked 10th in the nation with roughly 4.6 million residents in the Boston-Cambridge-Newton metropolitan area.

Unsurprisingly, the New York City metro area was the most populated in the nation, with 19.8 million residents. The rest of the top five were Los Angeles (13.1 million), Chicago (9.5 million), Dallas-Fort Worth (6.7 million) and Houston (6.2 million).
