Once we move past the thread title, examine the data & methodology involved, it's easy to see that what is measured is not the standard population change type of data sets more often bandied about when metro area population change is discussed.
I see and understand what's measured & how they did it but how many folks will get beyond the title & delve into the numbers for a true understanding?

The title basically comes from the article title and info from the article's first paragraph to give a general indication of the article's contents. Nothing more, nothing less. That's the point of any title, not the entirety of the article itself. They "get beyond" the title by reading the article; like any article. Don't over-analyze, lol. It's not that deep. This isn't a pro or anti thread. Just an interesting read.
