Default 2012 State & Metro Population Estimates

Quote:
Population of New York City area reaches 19 million

The Business Journals by G. Scott Thomas
Date: Wednesday, January 18, 2012, 1:00am EST


The New York City market hit a population milestone in the pre-dawn hours.

The nation's largest metropolitan area reached a population of 19 million at 5:55 a.m. this Wednesday, according to new estimates by On Numbers. New York is more than 6 million residents ahead of the national runner-up, Los Angeles.

The database below contains the estimated populations of 942 metropolitan and micropolitan areas as of Jan. 15, as well as their official 2010 headcounts. Use the tab to isolate a single state, or simply hit Search to view the entire list.

On Numbers has developed a computer program that analyzes a decade's worth of demographic data to project the populations of states, metros and counties. The program also predicts the dates at which milestones (defined as populations ending in four zeros) will be reached.

California's population takes aim at 38 million
The Business Journals by G. Scott Thomas
Date: Monday, January 16, 2012, 1:00am EST

California's population is on the verge of 38 million, while Texas' total has just passed 26 million.

That's according to On Numbers' latest population estimates, which were generated by a computer program that projects the populations of states, metropolitan areas and counties, based on demographic trends since 2000.

The following database contains Jan. 15 estimates for all 50 states and the District of Columbia, along with their official numbers from the 2010 census.

California, which is far and away the most populous state, had an estimated 37,884,602 residents at January's midpoint. Runner-up Texas had 26,017,907.

On Numbers is projecting that California's population odometer will roll over to 38 million on May 12. (The computer is actually more precise than that, predicting that the target will be reached at 11:49 a.m. on that Saturday.)

Texas passed the 26 million mark at 7:07 p.m. on New Year's Day, according to the projections.

Rounding out the top five in the population standings as of Jan. 15 were New York (19,442,080), Florida (19,221,784) and Illinois (12,906,281).

And Baltimore and Denver could pass St Louis

DFW and Houston still have many less (over a million) people than the Bay or Philly within 40 miles of the their cities, just much smaller MSA boundaries in those MSAs

Hmm, all things considered they are growing at basically the same rate. A ~5,100 person difference out of ~ 13 million is relatively insignificant.

I'll note it again, but the methodology supposedly uses historical run rates to calculate the projected totals, meaning data from the 00's was used to predict current and future growth. I don't think this is a good way to measure data in this economic environment, but if you do, then by all means study these lists!
