Whatever, they're estimates. We wont know if they are accurate for several years, and the Census has a history of not being so of late. The middle class has pretty much left, as they have been doing for decades. They are being replaced by poor immigrants, and part-time wealthy condo investors. There is a reason our GDP is higher, even though they have more people. It's a recipe for disaster down there, as we have seen time after time.

Maybe you should help replenish the numbers. They need help replacing all that have fled to Broward, Palm Beach and here. Just make sure your job is portable.

DFW, Houston, and Miami were all somewhat larger than Atlanta in 1950 when they all began their periods of high growth. Atlanta has outstripped them in growth in certain decades, and they have outstripped Atlanta in growth in other decades. Atlanta continues to grow rapidly, despite the media fear-mongering. The census estimates show Houston and DFW have added roughly 500,000 thousand people since 2010. Atlanta has added roughly 350,000. Not a HUGE difference, but yes it is an advantage. Miami has added 360,000. Charlotte has added 160,000. Nashville has added 120,000.

All this panic about Atlanta falling woefully behind the others are unfounded.

Except that there is no "all this panic" to begin with. I suppose you can find some here just like any of the other forums, just as you find blind cheerleaders here and elsewhere who overreact to anything less than cheer leading the hometown.

The topic of this very thread is based on the releasing of estimates and projections here in Atlanta, so...

I was responding to a 'drive-by' post from an Atlanta basher. Deal with it, and drop the attitude.

And what is yours exactly? You were the one that decided to respond to a post I made to a known troll.

Or is this just more of your normal argumentative and combative style? If so, please continue.

The stretch I'm talking about is way down in south GA. I didn't even consider that part I-75 because anyone heading to Florida would take just I-475 anyway.
