They took this projection from the last year that DC's population dropped to about 572,000 and extrapolated from that which was a major mistake. Since 2008 the population has risen to 646,000 and adds about 1,200 people a month at the current rate of growth. By 2030 I'd expect it to look like 800,000 about double their "projection."

Alabama already had 4.8 million.I believe the 2030 projection for Alabama should be 7 million.

I don't see any factors in it's economy that seem to be changing as to bring about a major ramping up of growth for The Bayou State.
Perhaps Hebrew was pulling our legs with his growth forecasts.
Yeah you're right. Things are changing though. New Orleans is growing at a steady pace which is good. Not sure about the rest of Lousiana though, I guess I'll have to do a little research on that. As I was saying though NOLA is growing FINALLY after 30 years of losing population due to several different factors. Yeah I agree with you tho Hebrew must gave been trying to pull our legs lol.. but I love his optimism regarding Louisiana being that Im a NOLA boy. I guess its good to dream and be optimistic right?

No way. 6 million at the most and it will even struggle to get there. Right now, by estimates, it hasn't reached 5 million yet in were in the middle of this decade.

Maybe more around 6 million like another poster mentioned. I doubt that there will be enough people moving to Alabama to get it to 7 million, at least not by 2030.

CT is expensive because suburbs are desirable with good schools and shopping plus upscale shopping. CT has job market in Fairfield County, Hartford Metro area, Greater New Haven area. Location is the key state is between two major cities Boston and NYC, Mountains in New Hampshire/Vermont, Cap Cod, RI beaches. Towns like Greenwich, Westport, New Canaan, Darien is super rich. CT has rural areas that are expensive with big houses with nice views or big houses by the shoreline on a hill.

And you believe that Rhode Island will lose 200,000 people in 15 years? That state has never posted negative growth in its history, so to expect a mass exodus seems very unlikely.

well aleast you have Providence

I edited my original post to be less ambiguous, but I live in Delaware lol, NOT Rhode Island. His prediction for that state just caught my eye as horribly wrong. Plus, us small states have to stick together!

Just would like the note the estimation for North Dakota, 2030 in 2008 was 605,000.
The actual population of North Dakota, 2015, is 756,000.
