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.
Why does Sacramento have a higher pop than Minneapolis, Atlanta and Miami?? Why is the sky blue? I don't know, it just is. SF is only 49 square miles and its over 800,000, Sac is twice the size of SF but a lower pop. Who cares of Fresno has more people.
