Data is already out of date. I think proximity uses 2000 census data with projection.
For example, Georgia has already eclipsed the 10 million mark, the 10 county Atlanta area alone is growing at 130,000 per year. The AJC stated we should be around 16 million by 2025.
With this said I do hope your data is correct, it is already a traffic filled sardine can here now.

10 counties? More like 28. And if Atlanta is at 16 million by 2025, then it will be the third largest metro area behind NYC and LA. I doubt it. You have a link to that article?

I think its a reference to the entire state.

Which I think is overly optimistic-but who knows?

Upon further research,
California's own estimates say the state will have a population of 49,240,891 by 2030. I guess we'll have to wait and see...

It's nice to see PA's population will CONTINUE to stagnate while urban sprawl CONTINUES to destroy our open space at a record pace.

Oh crap. 522,000 in the whole state?????? We got to work on thinning that down. It's getting entirely too crowded.
