It shall be very interesting to learn the latest census figures, once the census has been completed.
I'm sure that many of these figures are easily predictable ...
Places like Detroit, Cleveland, Buffalo and a few others will most likely continue to register population losses.
While others, including a few surprises such as Indianapolis, Columbus and Milwaukee, will most likely register population gains, and this is not typical for the majority of the "hard hit" midwest.
Charlotte, Denver and the Texas cities will be interesting cities to watch for.
I'm interested in hearing your predictions for the upcoming census ...

U.S population nearly 310 million

CA, TX, NY, and FL will remain the top four most populous states.

GA has passed MI and NC is right on MI heels.

Cities such as Cleveland, Detroit, Cincinnati, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh population will either decline or stay stagnant.

Metro's such as Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, and Phoenix have more people than the census is estimating.

Houston and Chicago will be close in competing for the third largest city in the country.

I predict Texas, Georgia, and the Carolinas will be the biggest gainers. While Florida will see a major drop in population compared to recent estimates.

The Northeast will remain steady with moderate growth, especially in the metros of NYC, Philadelphia, Boston, and DC.

Midwest states like Ohio and Michigan may see a decline, while the west coast as a whole should remain steady.

I think it will be all about the baby-boomers which will want to head for warmer climates to get the chill out of their bones and joints. It will be interesting to see the scrambling of the demographics,not just in 2010 but in subsequent years.

Totally! Maybe ATL, DFW, Houston, Phoenix, and Miami will be the largest cities in the country 20 or so years -- jam packed with Medicaid-suckling seniors.

Can't speak for the other cities, but Phoenix is the 5th youngest city in the US. Are you trolling?

Houston is the same way as well. I think it is.

I wouldn't be surprised if Houston became the 3rd largest. With the size of the city limits there is just so much room for growth. Most cities have much smaller city limits so you can be near the city but not be within the city limits. Our city limit encompasses an area that most cities would call their suburbs. Seems to be a bit unfair when it comes to ranking the cities. If Chicago spread out their city limit to be the size of Houston they probably wouldn't be challenged by Houston in the ranking.
