Looks like the estimates for the city of Dallas were off. The estimate was 1.3 million in 2009. I wonder if it is normal for the estimate to be off by that much?

There were undercounts all over the nation. I imagine the Hispanic population alone in Dallas was under counted by the tens of thousands.

The Census Bureau needs to find a more efficient method of collecting accurate data, then sending forms via the mail hoping people will return them.

What are the new demographics for DFW?

The city of Dallas seems to be the only lagging one. The rest of the Metroplex was cower to their estimates.

I didn't even receive a form and was expecting a visit from someone in person but that never happened either. Then I forgot about it until it was too late.

DFW was supposed to have 6.6 million in the MSA. It actually has only 6.3 million. Looks like DFW has been overestimating it's relevance AGAIN.
