This article focuses on cities where population decline turned back into population growth and made a distinction based on the magnitude of this growth. Cities where new growth exceeds previous peaks were termed growth-interrupted cities, whereas slowly resurgent referred to rebounding cities yet to reach their past records. It explores some of the causes and consequences of population resurgences. These include growing concentration of high-paying professional jobs in central cities, shrinking U.S. household size, changing immigration patterns, undervalued urban neighborhoods, and growing preferences for city living. It lastly considers some racial, class, gender, and sexual identity consequences of resurgence and gentrification
