As a rule of thumb, the + 59,034 number of people that are Black Alone compromised of 62.606% of Atlanta CSA's entire population growth between the July 1, 2013 period to the July 1, 2014 period. Likewise, for people of "mixed" Black ancestry the + 51,111 compromised of 54.231% of the entire Atlanta CSA's population growth from July 1, 2013 to July 1, 2014.

Stick around for a second, I'll get you the numbers by MSA.

American Factfinder. The data is compiled by the EEOC, Department of Labor, DOJ and the Office of Personnel Management.

Thanks RedJohn!

I think the MSA numbers would be more sifficient, especially since CSAs like Houston and Miami are really the MSA.

More census tracts that are predominately Black and have a household median income above the state figure.

St. Louis(MO median household income is $47,380 and for IL it is $56,797 (2009-2013 info): Census Tract 210803 in Saint Louis County, Missouri

Census Tract 210804 in Saint Louis County, Missouri

Census Tract 210806 in Saint Louis County, Missouri

Census Tract 210928 in Saint Louis County, Missouri

Census Tract 123100 in Saint Louis City County, Missouri

Census Tract 119200 in Saint Louis City County, Missouri

Census Tract 215900 in Saint Louis County, Missouri

Some were pluralistically more Black and over the median HH income or were predominately Black, but just under the median HH income.

Cleveland(OH median household income is $48,308(2009-2013 info): Census Tract 183605 in Cuyahoga County, Ohio

Census Tract 183606 in Cuyahoga County, Ohio

Census Tract 188103 in Cuyahoga County, Ohio

Census Tract 195600 in Cuyahoga County, Ohio

Census Tract 195700 in Cuyahoga County, Ohio

Census Tract 185101 in Cuyahoga County, Ohio

Census Tract 140400 in Cuyahoga County, Ohio

Census Tract 196000 in Cuyahoga County, Ohio

Some just miss the criteria either way. Will try to add more areas later.....

You know those two things aren't mutually exclusive, right?

Same deal with Atlanta though. The CSA doesnt really add too much to it.

Here are the MSA numbers for Atlanta though:

Atlanta's MSA black population as of 2014: 1,846,782
Atlanta's MSA black population as of 2013: 1,787,105

Black growth in Atlanta's MSA from 2013 to 2014: 59,677.

Boston has two contradictory reputations when it comes to Black people. On the one hand, the city was at the forefront of the abolitionist movement, so people tend to think of the White population there as being more progressive. On the other hand, the city has a very large Irish population, and Black people have historically had the worst relationship with the Irish in urban centers of all the European immigrant groups.

Today, Boston is pretty mellow. Really not any different from any other city. There's just not much to do for Black professionals.

I'm not talking about the black growth. Thanks, however.

I was speaking more on the "fluff," if you will. Houston and Miami don't really have "fluff" like Atlanta does, which includes Athens.

Las Vegas and Seattle are pretty high to not have large Black populations to begin with.

Athens and Gainesville, the smaller MSAs included in Atlanta's CSA, aren't growing much at all though.
