Wow at Atlanta and Houston too;
Remember Dallas has Fort Worth which is a major city in its own right. Atlanta does not have that caliber 30 miles away. So Atlanta's and Houston's number are more impressive, imo.....

Phoenix!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is up there with Houston, Atlanta, and DFW. People said that it slowed down along with Atlanta. I don't see any slowing!

DFW, Greater Houston, and Greater Atlanta all have around the same size land area. Where city lines are drawn is arbitrary. All three have very impressive growth along with Phoenix.

Nice to see Atlanta and Phoenix back on the growth bandwagon after an initial slowdown.

the detroit numbers should be in red- its losing population, sadly.

Interesting how DC and NYC are gaining at almost the exact same rate. But for DC that's a larger impact because it's a smaller area.

I knew the "Atlanta's growth has stagnated" claims had to be over-hyped especially considering the fact that I personally know 4 people who have moved here recently and every other Atlantan probably has a similar story.

Congratulations Houston, Dallas, Phoenix *cough* and Philly.

These are two separate Census-based estimates, so can't be compared.

You can compare one annual estimate to the other, but you can't compare two different methods of estimation.

In other words, the numbers are completely unreliable.
