I see this link.
Population Estimates - U.S. Census Bureau (http://www.census.gov/popest/estimates.php - broken link)

Are you adding together the counties in your city to get the Metro population?

San Diego County, CA 2,974,859 up (San Diego)

Cook County, IL 5,285,107 up slightly (Chicago)

Montgomery County PA 776,172 up slightly (Philly burbs; Philadelphia County-Philly only 1,449,634 down)

So Chicagoland has grown by over 700,000 people in less than 8 years?! wtf...that's too many people...

Will county is the one that has all of the people moving into it. will county was 500,000 people in 2000, now it has about 700,000 people. that's 200,000 people moving into Will County in less than 8 years...WTF! that's too many people. will county is the 9th fastest growing county in America.

Chicagoland's Will County is the only county, amongst the top 10 fastest growing counties in America, that IS NOT in the sun belt (Neveda, Arizona, ect.)
