However most of Florida continues to be rural, and the urban places are not that densely populated. It's just a place where people want to live contrary to what many on CD allude to.

What amazes me is the Gap between NY just four years ago they were tied now Florida has them beat by 1.4 million people. With Hurricanes sinkholes and all tells you just how hard the draw is. States in the rust belt on the other hand would be happy just to add a few thousand. lol

What's even more crazy is 100 years ago Florida was the least populated Southern State now it has more than double any other southern state.

NY is growing slowly but 20 million is inevitable.

One factor in Utah's growth is high birth rates.

Yeah, very slow growth rules for New England. Although Boston is growing again, which is great to see a boom there!

Connecticut will probably start to lose folks is my guess, over the next 10 years. Unless their situation with being mostly a "business unfriendly" state, with high income and property taxes, jobs will stay away, as will a lot of graduates from college looking for new jobs.

Cost of housing too high is a factor and overall COL quite high in Honolulu, which represents where a large majority of where people live in the state.

Doesn't look like Tennessee will pass Massachusetts by the next census. We should move up to 15th by the 2030 census though.

Yeah, not by the 2020 census. Most likely 2023/24, is my rough estimate. MA is growing about half the rate of TN it appears, so yeah if that rate holds up for both states, TN will be 15th mid 2020s.

It's the economy. By Midwestern standards, the Twin Cities are booming. Rochester is, too.

So what's the deal with Louisiana? Whatever happened to New Orleans actually being legitimately growing now and not just recapturing its departees from Katrina?
