Detroit's long population decline slowed to its lowest pace in decades last year and some experts say next year's numbers could show the first signs of growth since the 1950s.

The Census Bureau's estimate from July 1, 2015, listed the city’s population at 677,116, a 0.5% decrease, or a loss of 3,107 residents from the same date the previous year. The decline between 2013 and 2014 was 1.4% — a loss of 9,727 residents.
