Thumbs up Why does Fresno have a higher population then Sacramento?

Does anybody have a plausible explanation as to why Fresno has a higher population than Sacramento? According to Wikipedia, Fresno is about the same size as the city of Sacramento, yet Sacramento trails by almost 10,000-15,000.

Is it because Fresno went on an annexation spree of inhabited areas?
Has Fresno been on a building spree and added more to its population?

At one time, Sacramento (pre-1980ish) had a higher population then Fresno. But after the 1980 census Fresno overtook Sacramento.

Does anybody know how Fresno added to its population then?

Hello everybody, BTW. I'm new to the forum.
