In looking for unemployment data for Tennessee, I came across this map and data showing growth by county between 2000 and 2007. If you hover your cursor over the dark green counties, you'll see which ones grew the most (had the biggest percent population change):

East: Loudon, Monroe, Sequatchie and Sevier
West: Fayette
Middle: Montgomey, Robertson, Sumner, Wilson, Rutherford, Williamson, Maury, Bedford

ERS/USDA Data - Population change 1990-2007 for Tennessee

If you live in one of those high growth counties, do you see this as a good thing or a bad thing?

Are people surprised that Middle Tennessee appears to be growing faster than East Tennessee (eight counties with high growth vs 4 counties with high growth)?

Note: I looked at the map first because if I just looked at the data, I wouldn't know where some of these counties are located and I'm thinking that may be true for others, too. Also, I wouldn't have known what percentage was considered by the government to be "high growth" vs "medium growth," for example, unless I looked at the map to see which were designated that way.

Oh, by the way, if you want to see unemployment data changes (2000 to 2007) by TN county:

Looks like Greene, Washington, Carter and especially Sullivan (0.3 percent!?) are experiencing some, but slow growth. Good!
