The population was 46,320 at the time of the 2010 Census, making it the tenth most populous city in Pennsylvania. The Altoona MSA includes all of Blair County and was recorded as having a population of 127,089 at the 2010 Census, around 100,000 of which live within a 5mi radius of the Altoona city center according to U.S. Census zip code population data. This includes the adjacent boroughs of Hollidaysburg and Duncansville, adjacent townships of Logan, Allegheny, Blair, Frankstown, Antis, and Tyrone, as well as nearby boroughs of Bellwood and Newry.Having grown around the railroad industry, the city is currently working to recover from industrial decline and urban decentralization experienced in recent decades.

It also houses the 75+ year-old Altoona Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Teresa Cheung.
