About the Rankings

The Census Bureau has released the latest estimates from the American Community Survey data to estimate the population. We have crunched the numbers and the rankings are in. See the ZIPs in Tennessee with the highest population below, and the lowest population ZIPs. Only ZIP codes with a low margin of error are included.

At first glance, higher population may seem like just bragging rights. Look deeper and realize that higher populations can also bring a larger workforce, more entertainment and dining venues, services, and more. The change in population can also indicate the health of an area: is it growing or are people moving away? See the rankings and changes below.

The Tennessee population from the latest estimates is 6,715,984 and has risen 1.0% from 6,651,194.

This year saw several big changes. 37122 (Mount Juliet, TN) rose from #11 to #9, 37129 (Murfreesboro, TN) fell from #9 to #10, 37027 (Brentwood, TN) fell from #10 to #11, 38017 (Collierville, TN) rose from #13 to #12, and 38305 (Jackson, TN) fell from #12 to #13.
