Houston will become the fastest growing metro in raw numbers, I think, while Atlanta will barely make or miss the 100,000 mark. There will be so much urban development in Atlanta! Watch out Chicago!

From 2000-2010, DFW will have recorded the biggest gain in raw numbers.

^^He might be talking about new residents and not natural increase. I know Houston led this year in new residents moving in.

You'd be surprise. Houston is getting a lot of retirees. Most are going to the Piney Woods or the coasts.

Anayway, AOL is forecasting a 400 million total US population in 2050!(and for them it's a positive! what a mind-blowing shortsightedness!)
That's huge! I fear the global quality of life will decline and environment deterioration will increase dramatically. Bad news in my book!

Some people are obsessed with population growth, but population growth also means less jobs and resources for everyone.

As you have pointed out, population growth is not always healthy for a city. Especially one that grows way to quickly, Las Vegas and Phoenix is a good example of that.

A friend of mine moved out to Las Vegas (North Las Vegas to be specific) when the city was booming, now he is unemployed.

My core city, Detroit, will probably be around 820,000-830,000 people.

That's awesome, Atlanta has learned to weather a big storm.

Florida and many of it's cities will find that their growth rate has significantly slowed to near stagnation and/or actually declined.

honestly, i'm very curious about the black population in our country...i wonder if the negro thing will keep younger (and for that matter older) black ppl from filling the census out.

i still feel like its insulting. negro is not on my birth certificate at all. so they did it to attract the older black ppl. do they outnumber the younger black ppl? sacrifice us for the elderly? who said that elderly blacks want to be called negros anyway? whats next, putting:

African American, Black, Negro or Colored

on the census? why not? it isn't that far fetched if we're now throwing negro on the census. might as well reach back to the time we were referred to as colored ppl. maybe great grandparents will rejoice and stand up to be counted now.

*balls it up and throws it in the trash*
