This is exciting, but also makes me a little anxious. Our 2000 population was 107,000. I like things how they are here.

Just wait until next years numbers come out and reflect the 25,000 to 30,000 troops that have just come back to the Clarksville area from Iraq in the last 2-3 months.

That and the huge Corporate moves into the area. Montgomery County will certainly see an increase.

How about that Memphrica (Shelby County)? Just wait until those figure come out again. People are refugeeing out in droves. Place is Robo-Cop Old Detroit scary. Everybody moving to Brentwood and Franklin - gave up completely on the baggy pant thug infested place.

Looks like Washington is having a growth spurt. At one time a few decades ago it was sixth in the state but has fallen a few positions due to much faster growth elsewhere. I wonder if Sullivan is still fifth.

A cursory glanced seems to say yes, as of 2000. Of course Wilson, Ruthorford are growing so fast, as I'm sure other counties are. I wonder what the data set as of 2008 is. I can't open the excel files from JMT's post and the cvs files are too confusing to read easily.

But I'm short on time and didn't look very long.

OK I'll crunch the numbers and start a new thread on how Tennessee counties rank in population. This should be fun!

Okay, back home just in time to save myself a lot of work as JMT has already done it! Thanks!

I thought that the troops were counted in their home cities, counties and states throughout this country.
