But, these numbers are correct. Besides, other posters are citing magazines which use criteria that is almost always flawed because it depends on how the editor wants to tell a story.

You should worry less about talking about me and more about posting relevant information. 1, you blocked me but continue to talk about me, that is elementary school stuff. 2, my posts are right. It does not make Greenville a bad place to grow slower, it is just what it is.

The problem with Greenville cheerleaders is that high growth is cited through the lens of "we have new shopping centers" or "look at downtown, people are coming from everywhere to see it" or my favorites "Greer is a great place, Easley is a great place to live"....,,

Ever city has new shopping centers, every city gets visitors from other city leaders to see what works, and Greer/Easley are trashy towns. Factually, Greenville is not a high growth area.

The U.S. Census Bureau has messed up their website so badly that I can't find population estimates for MSA's, a task that used to be so easy. The Wikipedia data input person is correct with those growth figures, however. To me as along as a city and metro are growing and the income numbers and GDP are heading in the right direction, everyone involved should be happy. In overheated housing markets, what goes up must come down.

Are income numbers in GVL growing though? Or staying stagnant? Surely it has to be rising with all the companies moving into the area.

I agree with you. As long as economic statistics are headed in the right direction, folks shoud be happy. But, you do see some irrational comments on this board from Charleston's claim as a mini silicon valley to Greer and Easley being great places to live. Greenvile folks like to twist stats to make the city appear way better than reality.....not sure why they aren't happy with it as it is.

Economic stats such as income levels are widely used as a measure of the relative wealth of a city. it is a measure that combined with others helps to clarify what he city can and can't support.
