Johnson City metro shows 2015 population gain; Kingsport-Bristol posts largest loss in state

Another year’s population change data from the Census Bureau shows the Tri-Cities lost 103 residents during the July 1, 2014 – July 1, 2015 estimate. And like last year the Johnson City metro area grew, just not enough to offset the losses in Kingsport-Bristol.

The report also shows Kingsport-Bristol had the highest estimated population loss among state metro areas. The only other loss came in Jackson.

Here’s how the population change looked for Tennessee’s metro areas:

Johnson City – up 500.

Kingsport-Bristol – down 603.

Morristown – up 968

Knoxville – up 4,357

Cleveland, up 1090

Chattanooga, up 3,579

Clarksville, up 3,127

Jackson, down 421

Memphis, up 1,213

Nashville, up 36,435
