On August 20, 2020, the D.C. Policy Center’s article, The District’s population grows for the 14th year in a row, but at a weaker rate, was cited by The Hill:
The most recent census numbers put D.C.’s population at 705,749 as of July 1, 2019, up 4,202 people from 2018.
This equates to a growth rate of 0.6 percent, continuing on a slightly downward trend of the annual growth for the city. However, the city’s growth rate is on par with the national population rate of 0.5 percent growth, according to the D.C. Policy Center, an independent nonpartisan think tank.
