It does to mainly for the city of Atlanta.Also because of the the Airport for one reason you have a large auto manufacturing and related plants based within a few short hours distance.

Is that the fastest growing in terms of population ? If so, I'm not so sure that's a good thing considering how bad the traffic in Atlanta already is.

Wow...showing Atlanta as finally surpassing Dallas, Houston, and Philadelphia. This is a big deal. And what I would expect. Atlanta's pop is finally catching up with its stature/importance/significance.


And Brasilia, Brazil (my other hometown)...5.25 million by 2020! It's at 2.5 million now. Whoa.
