The region grew by more than 86,000 people last year and two-thirds of that growth occurred within 10 cities, including Kent, according to data presented by the Puget Sound Regional Council.

The top city by total population change was Seattle, which accounted for 28 percent of the region’s population change last year. The data is part of a recent Regional Data Trends presentation focusing on how the region is growing and changing.
