If so then why is that the case? Is Lafayette more aggressive when it comes to attracting residents and jobs?

Its growing but more slowly lately due to the mini oil crash last year. However they are doing a lot of maintenance and road projects and bridge repairs which should help things along.

Baton Rouge is growing very fast, especially outlying areas in Livingston and Ascension Parishes. I moved back to this state a year ago after living in West Virginia in a much more rural area and am taken aback at the rampant new development all over Denham Springs, Walker, Watson, Prairieville and Gonzales. Seems like every empty piece of land in Denham is being developed or is slated for development and I-12 is now being widened past Satsuma. Also see a lot of new construction in South Baton Rouge.

Also believe the Mandeville and Slidell areas continue to grow rapidly as well.

I honestly feel I would be happier moving to a more rural area now like the town of Livingston or St. Francisville but that would be a much longer commute.

I knew the Baton Rouge metro was growing but wasn't sure about the city itself.

Because it's healthy in most cases.

I think its the entire region that counts. For example if St. George does leave the city of BR then BR will officially become a smaller city but that doesn't affect the stats in the metro area as a whole. BR already "shrank" when Central became its own city.

Central nor St. George affect Baton Rouge population. Baton Rouge city limits isn't synonyms with EBR Parish.
