With Wilmington, DE showing population grow at 70,000 in the 2010 census and Camden's population declining to 77,000 do you think Wilmington will surpass Camden in city population by the next census in 2020?

Honestly.. those are two cities where the census numbers are far off. Both have high poverty, low education, high crime, and a high number of illegal immigrants. Too many variables - the census is just a stab in the dark.


I'm sure Wilmington and Camden both are above 85k just adjusting for the illegals alone.

It's second to Camden in violent crime for their size. I'm surprised you live in Gloucester County and don't know this.

United States cities by crime rate (60,000-100,000) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I also didn't say anything bad about the illegals ( I'd rather have them than American loafers,) just that they make a city's population difficult to pin down.

All this time I thought you were from the Washington Twp. of Gloucester County. No wonder you don't like South Jersey
