Some maps for people who like pretty pictures.

County percentage changes:
tps://www.census.gov/popest/data/map...1213_est13.pdf

Metro percentage changes:
https://www.census.gov/popest/data/m...gure1_2013.pdf

Micro percentage changes:
https://www.census.gov/popest/data/m...gure2_2013.pdf

I'm in a purple county (declining population), chronic double digit unemployment will do that to ya. Looks like I have a lot of company in rural America. Most of the micros in the eastern half of the country seem to be emptying out as well.

Great list! Thanks for doing this, nashvols.

I don't think there are any surprises here. The Nashville area is booming. Chattanooga's growth rate is now higher than Knoxville's, Memphis and the Tri Cities are stagnant, and much of the rural part of the state is struggling, particularly the NW corner.

And speaking of Nashville, it is now one of the country's 10 fastest growing large metro areas (more than 1 million population):

The only surprise to me was Clarksville, which had some of the biggest losses in the state. I'm curious if it is something military related (because both Montgomery and Christian Counties had an abnormally high loss). I also noticed that they retroactively raised the 2012 estimate for Montgomery, making the loss bigger.


It does seem that the area around Chattanooga (Cleveland, Dayton, and several of the SE rural counties) is faring better than a lot of other rural areas/small towns around Tennessee (in terms of growth/loss).

Yeah the Clarksville thing really surprised me, too. It has to be military related. Let's be honest, the military build-up at Ft Campbell probably accounted for most of Clarksville's go-go growth in past years anyway. There are other military communities around the country that also experienced population decline.

It's also very interesting that 3/4 of the population growth for the entire state of Tennessee occurred in the Nashville metropolitan area.

I also wonder if Shelby County's population loss is just an aberration or is the start of a new trend.

As the military goes, so does Clarksville. There's definitely more to the city than just the military presence, but that is a huge part of it.

As for Nashville's share of the state's growth...I was a little surprised that it was that high, but I knew it was bound to increase.

From 2011-2012, Tennessee grew by 56,553, and the Nashville MSA grew by 28,599. When the estimates came out in December for 2012-2013 growth, Tennessee only grew by 41,064. I knew Nashville had still been growing strong, but I wondered if it had slowed a slight bit. I was *slightly* surprised that it had actually increased...but that meant that the rest of the state had decreased quite a bit.

2011-2012 growth
Tennessee - 56,553
Nashville MSA - 28,599 (50.6% of total growth)
Tennessee minus the Nashville MSA - 27,954

2012-2013 growth
Tennessee - 41,064
Nashville MSA - 31,153 (75.9% of total growth)
Tennessee minus the Nashville MSA - 9,911 (8,794 -- 89% of that -- came from Knox, Hamilton, Blount, and Sevier counties)

38,974 (95%) of Tennessee's growth came from the 10 fastest growing counties.



Here's a list of Tennessee counties and their growth from 2010-2013, separated by the Grand Divisions:

One thing that is noteworthy is that of the counties in east TN that are gaining population, almost all of those, with the exception of Washington, are not in UPPER east TN. People seem to be leaving upper east TN, though slowly.

A look at the components of change paints a slightly different picture.

Yes, there are people leaving those counties, but it's not migration that is the issue, it is natural population change. Simply speaking, folks in NE Tennessee aren't havin' enough babies, or are too old to.

2010-2013 components of change:

County - natural increase (births/deaths) - net migration (domestic/international)

Carter -259 (+1,813/-2,072) - +133 (+92/+22)
Greene -724 (+1,941/-2,665) - +119 (-17/+136)
Hawkins -271 (+1,798/-2,069) - +184 (+171/+13)
Johnson -148 (+475/-623) - -122 (-123/+1)
Sullivan -1,202 (+5,052/-6,254) - +1,141 (+1,035/+106)
Unicoi -247 (+526/-773) - +7 (-27/+34)
Washington +234 (+4,341/-4,107) - +2,377 (+2,206/+171)

Shelby County has the opposite issue. Natural increase is high, but it is offset by net migration.



To me, the data here shows that NE Tennessee has an aging population, and is not growing fast enough via migration to offset the negative natural increase. This doesn't surprise me, as NE Tennessee is not a very diverse area, and in general, the white population in American tends to not have as many kids. I guess the kids in NE TN move away, and are replaced by people moving in that are a bit older (retirees, or empty nesters).
