If not here it is:

Lincoln Grew by about 4,000 to 248,744 .

Omaha has since annexted another 10,600 people so, july 1st 2008 may show Omaha growing past 450,000 people..

of course someone mentioned it, and if they annexed another town that is not growth.

Here are the most up to date population estimates by the US census bureau:

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

Los Angeles grew from 3,823,508 in 2006 to 3,834,340 in 2007, an annual growth rate of .3%. Had LA increased to 4 million, it would have been a growth rate of 4.5%, not witnessed in LA since the early 20th century.

That's ridiculous. There's no reason to prefer In-State sources. Simply because an organization exists within california, does not mean the demographic methods are better. In fact, the demography practiced at the US census bureau is more respected by academic demographers.

That's right. Some people seem to think the Census Bureau is out to get them or shows favoritism, as if all Census workers are bureaucrats shipped in from Washington DC. But the Census Bureau hires local workers and relies on local statistics as well as things like tax returns to make their estimates. While they sometimes have to make adjustments, their estimates are usually pretty accurate.

Oh yes, a certain forumer here was/is convinced that NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg slipped the Census Bureau a $20 spot to add NJ Counties to the NYC metro area. A forumer who shall not be named, but who sometimes talks like this
