Mrytle beach area prices arent bad for a costal area and alot of things to do so people move there.

I dont see a reason why spartanburg isn't included in greenville being that it is pretty close. And most of the time when you think of greenville you think spartanburg.

I dont think florence as a city is at a population lost but florence county includes areas where people dont really want to be.. lake city, tville. People sre most likely moving from those areas. Not necessarily florence but as a city which people are moving there for the cheap cost of living and and decent medical.

It would seem like Spartanburg and Greenville should be the same but most of the industry is in Spartanburg County and they base it all off commuting patterns so it ends up evening out a bit more but you're right Greenville and Spartanburg for all intents and purposes are just The Upstate.

For Florence I think you are right about the city, although they have seen almost no growth it didnt look like they had a loss, they pretty much just stayed the same. I know personally a lotttt of people who have left Florence in the past year. Many of my old friends I went to college with have all left shortly after graduating as did I. Most moved to Columbia or Greenville or Charleston for better jobs than they have in Florence. Hopefully for Florence's sake that changes in the coming years.

Unless you are a teacher, nurse/medical field, or a quality control engineer... the job options in Florence are limited. The area, especially in the City of Florence, is make strides but it is up against some stiff competition both in and outside the State.

The SC boomtrain is still rolling. Myrtle (2nd), Hilton Head (11th), and Charleston (19th) are back around the same spots as last year. Charleston is 7th in the "large metros" category.

Columbia, Greenville, and York are showing strong numbers as well.

Charleston - 744K (+2.4)
Columbia - 810K (+1.3)
Greenville - 874K (+1.4) (Of course Laurens and Pickens are dragging it down)
Spartanburg - 325K (+1.1)
Myrtle - 431K (+3.5)
Hilton Head - 207K (+2.6)
Florence - 206K (-0.1)

Greenville County's population is estimated at 492K. 500K is going to be eclipsed before you can blink. Richland is estimated at 407K, Charleston near 389K, Horry 309K, Spartanburg 297K, Lexington 281K, York 251K, Berkeley 202K, Anderson 195K, Beaufort 179K, Dorchester 152K.


Whats going on in Pickens County? I believe that Abbeville and McCormick are the only Counties in the State that I have never been to. I only imagine what is happening in Laurens....

Nothing much in Pickens. It's growing, but nothing special. And you arent missing anything with Abbeville or McCormick...if youve seen one rural SC county, youve seen 'em all.

Greenville and Spartanburg have large enough populations to the point each is their own metropolitan statistical area. They are united through the Greenville-Spartanburg-Anderson, South Carolina Combined Statistical Area.

Could the 2015 metropolitan statistical area estimates forecast new MSAs? The Hilton Head Island-Bluffton-Beaufort metropolitan statistical area has to be the most recent in the state. Anderson, Oconee, and Pickens counties could combine to form a metropolitan statistical area focused on Anderson, Clemson, Easley, and Seneca.

Growth from Greenville. Powdersville sits on the boarder and Easley is about 10 mins from downtown Greenville.

Also a lot of growth coming from retirees along the lakes and in northern Pickens County.

I think most people forget how close Easley is to Greenville Its closer than Clemson Rd is to Downtown Columbia.

If Anderson County didn't have such bulk of population along the boarder with Greenville County it would be its own MSA more than likely.
