Most of the counties that are declining there are extremely rural. All the growth is mostly around Atlanta.

Its pathetic

Michigan is the only state that actually lost population. A city or county losing, but the state? Even Mississippi grew and we all know its past rep and it is the poorest(or second poorest) in the union.

Being a poor state doesn't mean its people can't make like rabbits. I don't know if it was a simple births-outweighs-deaths increase, but I should think it was.

I'm pretty sure the growth in every state was due to immigration.

It would be very interesting to see birth rates by state though. Some may be able to maintain growth based on that, and Mississippi could be one

There county growth map is a visual indicator of why NC will pass Georgia in the future. NC has more growth areas instead of one giant juggernaut.
Even in 2010, the gap between the two states was much smaller than was "estimated". I think NC will pass GA this decade. The delta is only about 150K.

It's definitely probable (after all, Georgia passed NC just a few decades ago), but one thing to notice is that the scale on the Georgia map is different. Georgia's "low growth" light green color means growth up to 25% (which is pretty breakneck), while NC's is only up to 15%. So lots of Georgia's light green counties are actually growing pretty darned fast.

But yeah, the only parts of Georgia that are uniformly growing are the metro area, North Georgia, and Coastal Georgia. Southwest Georgia is really hit hard--there's just not much going on in a region whose economic anchor is Albany, GA.
