Census Figures Show Population Increases in Lexington, Louisville

Louisville might be Kentucky's biggest city, but Lexington is where more newcomers are deciding to call home.

According to new census figures, Lexington's population jumped more than 18,000 between 2000 and 2007.

That's nearly three times more than Louisville, which grew by only 6,500.

Lexington wasn't the only city to see a population rise. Georgetown, Paris, Winchester, Richmond, Berea, Danville and Nicholasville also grew.

For the seventh year in a row, Frankfort's population shrank, and Versailles shrank by 19 people in 2007.
