Now one of 10 most populated cities in U.S.

Estimates released by the U.S. Census Bureau Thursday show that San Jose's population has exceeded 1 million people, making the city the 10th in the country to reach that size.

San Jose is the only Bay Area city with a population exceeding 1

The South Bay city added 11,964 people between July 2013 and July 2014, according to census bureau officials.

San Francisco moved up to the 13th spot on the list of the top 15 most populous cities in the same time period, census bureau officials said.

Los Angeles and San Diego are the only other cities in California to reach the 1 million mark, according to census bureau officials. Los Angeles, the second largest city in the country, has more than 3.2 million people while San Diego has more than 1.3 million.

New York, which remained first on the list with more than 8.4 million people, added 52,700 people to its population from 2013 to 2014, the largest gain of all U.S. cities.
