New figures from the Census Bureau released Thursday show another year of growth for Philadelphia's population. Here are five key things to know about the new data:
1. The population: Philadelphia's population stood at 1,560,297 people as of July 1, 2014.
2. The growth: Philadelphia's population grew by 0.27 percent in 2014, with the city adding 4,245 new residents, but the rate of growth slowed for the second-straight year. (For comparison, in 2011 and 2012, Philadelphia's population grew by nearly three-quarters of a percent each year, adding more than 21,000 new residents during that time.)
3. Births and deaths: The number of births in Philadelphia declined by 0.37 percent to 23,145 in 2014, while the number of deaths rose 1.75 percent to 14,868, for a natural population increase of 8,277 residents -- the smallest such increase in recent years.
4. Moving in (and out): More people are moving out of the city than moving in: The city had an increase in immigrants from other countries, but people who left Philadelphia for other places in the United States led to a net migration decline of 4,128 residents.
