Some new figures from the U.S. Census Bureau show the Capital Region has grown significantly since 2010, even as people continue to leave other regions of upstate New York.
The Bureau says the area has grown by nearly 17,000 between 2010 and 2017.
Saratoga County has seen the highest population growth in that time, more than 7,000.
For the record, we remain the 64th largest metro area in the country with more than 886,000 people.
Officials point to the expanding high-tech industries as a major factor.
