And you to...

Look, you can use it either way. When you say a place is "fastest growing", you can mean it as gaining the most people, or higher percentage gains.

And I didn't prove my point. Instead, proved mine! Some say New Orleans is the fastest growing (using percentages), others say Houston is (using raw numbers).

And I dare you to tell it to these people: Houston Fastest Growing US City - HAIF® - Houston's largest internet community

They are the ones saying "fastest growing". Maybe you and sav should teach them a lesson.

He isn't teaching me anything I don't know.
OMG you really don't understand do you? The first article you linked to is talking about CITIES, not the entire state. And the second is talking about Houston ONLY not the entire state of Texas. And the second article also says it gained the most in Population, NOT percentage and it DID NOT say it was the fastest growing city, it said

Houston added the most residents between 2006 and 2007,
Not a word on that forum about being the fastest growing city at all, just total population growth as a raw number.

We don't need to teach them a lesson, you need to learn the lesson, they already know it. Neither of them states that Texas as a state is the fastest growing state in the US.

I'm just giving an example, so I used cities. I could pull the state news reports from last year if you want them that bad.

I guess you didn't even read the title.

Again, you didn't even read the title. Throughout that whole thread they have said Houston is the fastest growing, in terms of raw numbers.

How thick headed are you?

You refer to a freakin BLOG ENTRY as evidence! If you actually click on the link they are referring to it proves MY POINT again, it shows the fastest growing city using PERCENTAGES. I'm thinking the person who made that entry is as clueless as you.

Did you even click on the link that blog entry is referring to?

Population Estimates for Places over 100,000: 2000 to 2006 (http://www.census.gov/popest/cities/SUB-EST2007.html - broken link)

If you did it would show you the PERCENTAGES again and not raw numbers.


Seriously, You don't know what the hell you're talking about and you are to freakin stubborn and thick headed to realize it, which sounds about right for a Texan. Go get an education first before you pretend to speak like you have a damn clue what the hell you're talking about. They are suppose to teach you this in high school but I guess it either went over your head or the TX public school system failed again.

They, like you, are a bunch of Texans that don't realize how you measure growth. Great, so you found a bunch Texans that don't know what they're talking about either, gee that must be really hard with the internet......

Hey smart one, they have percentages AND raw numbers in that link. You are just looking at what you want to look at. Look at the entire thing.

And the person who made that entry is a lawyer in Houston. IF you think he is really clueless, you should read his posts in the thread.

Please post one link that says that Texas is the fastest growing state. NOT in raw population because that is NOT the number used to determine the growth rate.

It is a title to a forum thread started by a used named "Red Scare". If I posted a thread here on C-D titled "Maine fastest growing state" then stated in the thread that Maine grows Blueberries faster than other regions would it make the Title of the thread truthful. No, and neither does the title to the forum thread you linked to.

I read the title, like I said above, it is a title to a thread on a public forum. NOT a hard factual statement that is then backed up by numbers and rankings from studies and respected sources.

Raw numbers yes, Percentage of population to determine growth rates, no. Again PLEASE post a link to a reputable source that has Texas as having the fastest population growth rate.

And the RAW #'s they list is the PERCENTAGE of the population it grew by.

And did you notice how Houston is #66 fastest growing city despite have the largest raw number of people moving to it of any city ranked above it?????????? That is because growth, especially when talking about fastest growth, is measure by percentage.


You keep proving us right but are to dumb to realize it.

It's just incredibly frustrating explaining the same thing over and over and you don't get it yet! You're wrong, others have told you're wrong, so just accept the FACT that you are wrong and get over it. Teenagers can be so damn stubborn and annoying at the same time....
