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.
Welcome to the forum. I believe you can pack a lot of people into 9 sq miles. Fresno: 105 sq miles, Sacramento: 96 sq miles.
