Even at over 4 million The Valley is an under estimate. Mcallen at 286,959 is very conservative. Hidalgo County is going to be in the top 5 in population real soon. What is North Alamo WSC? They have that population at 350,473.

But I wonder why they have it so high and Pearland so low. Pearland gained almost 100K this past decade and it has a huge chunk of Brazoria county all to itself. I see Pearland at 350K by 2060 easily
Yeah I know, it's amazing. They really need to expand 287, the freeway through Mansfield and the southwestern portions of Arlington (which is almost growing as fast as Mansfield is). As for Pearland, they really have it undercounted. The 2020 number they have for Pearland is what the population is today there.

Yeah, they only have The Woodlands at 55,000, IIRC. That 2030 number they have for the Woodlands (119,300) is closer to what The Woodlands is now. They probably didn't take into account Sugar Land annexing the New Territory and Greatwood areas (believe both of them are still unincorporated).

I would like to live long enough to be in the 2060 census. If I make it I will be 87 in 2060. I want to live long enough to see the true numbers.

I'll be 68 years old and will probably still be on City-Data, discussing estimates for 2111.

lol, They have Brazoria County gaining only 50K a year from 2000 onwards. Pearland alone in that County gained twice that in the last decade.

I think that is because they are not sure which way/direction those areas are going to develop. The Woodlands Is getting close to being complete but every time they get near the final area of land they will purchase another 400 or so acres to keep it going.

Unrelated to any of those graphs, but Texas did gain the most people from 2000-2010 with about 4.3 million people if I remember correctly. (even though Nevada's change from 1.8mil to 2.7mil was a U.S.-best 50% growth) If these numbers turn out as predicted, I believe Texas can overcome California as most populated U.S. state.
