Why don't you? You're the one who said it without any links to back it up.

It's births and NYC's international migration. It has the most out of the top ten cities (now I'm just looking at metro areas, but assuming that if you break it down to the city, it'll stay relatively the same). For Chicago, it has relatively low international migration for a place its size, and it is also losing domestically.

So you're saying NYC's population is fueled solely from International migration and births?

Didn't I say domestic + international is what puts New York's growth over-the-top?

Or are you saying NYC's population is fueled solely from International migration and births?

Yes. If you look at the domestic migration numbers for the metro, it is shows over 200,000 people each year. So, this far outweights the number of people moving in. I highly doubt NYC is gaining in the domestic department if its entire metro area is losing well over 200,000 every year.

Why do you doubt that? New York CITY is and will always be a desirable place.

And, for the second time, the title of this thread asks "Which city will attract the most PEOPLE". Do internationals not count as people?

The correct answer to this poll is New York City. Period.

Who said it wasn't a desirable place? I'm just saying that if the entire metro area is losing well over 200,000 people a year domestically, it's hard to believe that NYC is having a positive gain.

Now you said you had links, but you wanted me to go out and find them. Why don't you just provide them?

What are you talking about? I already stated that NYC has strong international migration.

Yes, New York City does. Metro area wise, it doesn't. Government boundaries, in terms of city limits, are so irrelevant in terms of growth.

Actually no. It appears that Houston was number one in the nation in terms of numerical gain this year again: Population Estimates for Places over 100,000: 2000 to 2006 (http://www.census.gov/popest/cities/SUB-EST2007.html - broken link)

No, it wasn't.

2000-2007

New York was the largest numerical gainer, adding 265,873 residents over the period. Houston, which added 233,876, was second. Five other Texas cities made the top 25: San Antonio, Fort Worth, Austin, McKinney and Dallas.
