Don't forget about Saint Clair, Blount, and some parts of Bibb and Chilton counties.

Hoover will NEVER have a greater population than Birmingham. While Birmingham has been losing population pretty fast, and Hoover has been growing steadily, Hoover simply does not have the land area or reputation to expand like Birmingham has. Birmingham is on the verge of completing the digestion that it has had to do with the exit of a lot of steel industry. Once, the industry switches more towards corporate employers, I think you'll really see Birmingham get back on the rise again.

According to this wikipedia article, the population has already started to rebound. In 2002 Birmingham had a population of just over 227,000. The 2008 estimate puts it at 242,000.

That's an old count, in 2000 the population was at 242,000. There must've been a typo on Wikipedia. Birmingham will continue to lose people for a few more years, and may dip below 210,000 at this next census. I think eventually, within five years, the population will rebound and start to rise again.

However, Hoover's population growth is relatively stagnant.

You do know that 90% of the info in wikipedia is put on there by people just like you and I, anyone can add info to it. So take any info you find on wikipedia with a grain of salt.

Now I'm not saying it is wrong, but if you want real numbers, use the US Cencus Bureau -

As long as Birmingham residents shows hostility to new immigrant they will never attract new residents. The open atitude of that area of saying it openly that"we will first take care ofour own" has pushed the divers new population in the direction of divers friendly Hoover and Helena
