    San Jose Reaches 1M Population Mark: U.S. Census
    NBC Bay Area
    San Jose City Hall sits in the center of Silicon Valley.

    San Jose has a population of one million or more people, reports the U.S. Census Bureau.

    It's the 10th city in the country to be determined to be that large, joining Los Angeles and San Diego as the third supersized city in California.

    Estimates are based on 2014 numbers. San Jose just missed the mark in 2013, but the city's subsequent growth spurt also landed it in a top 15 list of cities that saw the largest numerical gains in one year.
