Rogers ranks No. 1 in population growth, new report finds

With a population under 700 persons merely 20-plus years ago, Rogers has boomed in population today to become the fastest-growing city in the entire state.
The Minnesota State Demographic Center recently released an Analysis of the 2015 Population and Household Estimates with statistics about growth in the city’s states and counties.
Aided by the 2012 merger with Hassan Township, Rogers’ growth skyrocketed 44 percent from 2010 to 2015, from 8,597 persons in 2010 to 12,381 in 2015. The 44 percent growth was nearly double the next closest city, Wayzata, whose population increased 23.8 percent from 3,688 people in 2010 to 4,564 people in 2015.
Rounding out the top 10 fastest-growing cities are Medina, Eagle Lake, Alexandria, Victoria, Carver, Madison Lake, Otsego and St. Anthony.
