Metro Atlanta's Population Rises | WABE 90.1 FM

Quote:
The 10-county region added 40,100 between April 2012 and April 2013, according to the Atlanta Regional Commission.

...

Metro Atlanta's population is nearly 4.3 million, that means the region has more people than 24 individual states.

...


"Things are getting better. But we're still not at the places we were in the earlier previous decade, and especially in the 1990's," says Alexander.

Fulton County has the metro's biggest population, helped by 9,300 new residents last year.

Gwinnett had the second most additions, followed by Cobb and DeKalb counties respectively.

Overall seeing growth but nothing like the 90's. Gwinnett which used to be the growth leader (and also the largest by area) seems to be leveling off and Fulton has first. COA is is continuing it population growth after a rough time from 70's - 90's.

Hopefully the housing project/recession related outflow has been curtailed.

I didn't know there was any doubt on the population growth, but I think it gets lost that a lot of population growth is natural change (births vs deaths) though Atlanta has done very well with gains through migration obviously.

Ah, I thought I remembered seeing this. But I spent a few minutes searching before I posted this new thread and could not find anything.

We can close this if needed.

The ARC population estimates are always depressingly low. Even during the boom years in the 2000s their pop. growth numbers were much lower than what the census was putting out. However, since a lot of the population estimates of metro counties were revised downwards in 2010 the Census Bureau could have been just as overly optimistic.

I'd say the real numbers are somewhere in between the two reports.

Metro Atlanta is plenty big as it is. Time to settle down and deal with the growth we've had.
