According to U.S. Census data out today, city living is, increasingly, the life we lead. While Chicago posted only a modest gain - not enough to reverse years of decline, Art Golab reports - most major American cities saw robust population gains for the second straight year.

Big cities surpassed the rate of growth of their surrounding suburbs at an even faster clip, a sign of America's continuing preference for urban living after the economic downturn quelled enthusiasm for less-crowded expanses.

Farther-out suburbs known as exurbs saw their growth slip to 0.35 percent, the lowest in more than a decade.
