Since 2010, Columbus' MSA has been growing at an annual average rate of 1.23%. Do you really think it can even approach a 2% rate as it gets larger? Personally, I think it would be a nice achievement if Columbus can just continue its current average rate as its base population grows. That said, the rate is probably more likely to go down than to go up as it grows.

As the word gets out on Columbus, people are going to gravitate towards it more. Will it be the next Austin, no but for a city that flies under the radar, it is clipping along at a pretty good rate.
The chance for Amazon, Hyperloop, logistics and continued growth in IT are going to help propel the city forward.

As mentioned, not too many areas, in general, reach 3% a year.
Gotcha. The way your post sounded I thought you were upset that Omaha hadn't been mentioned yet in this thread and I was explaining why.

It looks like you didn't adjust for the three extra months.
