Well this report says that Florida lost popultation between April 08 and April 09.

Is this drop from the numbers they used in their 2007 report where they overstated population by about 500,000

http://www.bebr.ufl.edu/system/files/2007_Estimates_Table01.pdf (broken link)

Could it be they base their findings on data that is not a great indicator?

"The university's Bureau of Economic and Business Research relies mainly on electric company connections and disconnections, supplemented by building permit data, to estimate population changes."

I think i'll wait for the US Census numbers to come out instead of a report that has been shown to be way off before.

You are 100% right. This data is not reliable. The disconnections could be people moving with other relatives due to our economic conditions and the building permit data is self explanatory.

It can be done. My home was built in 1955. Most of the 23 trees on the lot have been there for much longer and several for a couple hundred years. It is only a half-acre lot. It's a subdivision. They were built this way back then.

What's the slope across your lot, back to front?
