I really can't wait to see the Census figures when they come out.

The Asian & Latino populations have exploded around Atlanta in the past 10 years. I'm just wondering how accurate the count will be. Not just for us, but everywhere.

I wouldn't be shocked if the latino population in Atlanta area was 1 million now(I'm exaggerating, but I wouldn't be surprised).

For 2008 it was estimated around 515,000.

Yeah, I don't think it's up to a million. I've just had this gut feeling for a while that it is higher than the 2008 estimates, though.

To me, it feels like around 750-800,000 would be about right - but who knows? I'm Buford Hwy adjacent, so I'm probably a little biased with my estimates.

I think that the estimates are always beaucoup conservative anyway.

Naw, I'm considering the "big picture" and counting illegals with my numbers.

I have to admit that living where I do, I really don't experience anything but the positives of the influx. The food offerings have grown beyond amazing.....

I agree. I have a couple of friends that did the Census thing, and the stories of absolute terror when dealing with some households in person are beyond sad.

I know the count won't be accurate, and it hurts all of us in the end.

Yeah, I worked it in Texas and can tell you horror stories myself. The Count will not be very accurate.

And as for the influx, it has it advantages but gets overwhelming quickly.
