The Chicago Sun-Times reports that the U.S. Census Bureau's national estimates released Thursday found that Chicago's population rose about 10,000 between July 2011 and July 2012 to just over 2.7 million.

The city's growth was enough for Chicago to remain the nation's third largest city. But the two cities with more residents -- New York and Los Angeles -- grew a bit more in the year. The census bureau says New York added 67,000 residents and Los Angeles added 34,000.

In Illinois, of the 10 most populated cities only Rockford and Waukegan saw a drop in population. And in both cases the drop was less than 1 percent.
