And the city has probably lost 210,000 in the last year.

I know a lot of architects who have left in the last year. But we're certainly not representative of the overall population. Thankfully.

Last year they stated the city grew by 23,000. This year they revised their prior year estimates down by 23,000, and had them growing by 21,000 this year.

It's all numbers. I would expect the city did grow last year, and especially this year, although not by a ton. That's been common all over the Midwest, where everyone has stopped moving as the economies in Florida, Arizona, etc. have all ground to a halt. Texas has been the only place still getting migration.

Whoo! Wouldn't this type of growth inevitably have put the city at, or over 3,000,000? I don't know how long this growth has been going on.
