According to the new 2008 county estimates Louisville's Metro Area now stands at 1,268,323; an increase of 106,348 from the population in 2000.

That means LMA is on pace for a net gain of 135,935 in population - a gain of 11.4% during this decade. That would put the census 2010 population right at 1,300,000

Sorry, I meant to post the link - it is Wikipedia's Louisville MSA page which I have personally edited and fact checked

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louisvi...atistical_Area


Population by year - note increases can include counties that were added & not previously part of MSA

2008 1,268,323
2000 1,161,975
1990 952,662
1980 906,152
1970 867,330

It would be nice to see these numbers using a consistent set of counties. Start in 1970 with Jefferson, Clark, Floyd, Bullit and Oldham and use this same set moving forward to 2008.

The July 1st 2008 numbers do not add up right. It should be lower :-(

Census >

In another post you put out that Louisville's '08 estimates are at 714,000. That's a significant drop from a million. How can two estimates be so far off? It's obvious that getting accurate numbers is a challenge. Makes me even happier that the US Census bureau is spending over a $100 million dollars in advertising next year.

i think census was talking about the metro population when he mentioned it being around a million, not the county of jefferson. there is no way that anyone even thinks the county is around this size anyways. as far as the addition, i think it must be that census added scott county, IN into the count? and it shouldn't be.

Not to mention Meade county. So according to this 'Wikipedia' fact check for the Louisville Metro area, we are including Henry, Oldham, Shelby, Spencer, Nelson?, Bullitt, Clark, Floyd, Harrison?, Scott?, and Jefferson. Why stop there? Why not add Hardin and Grayson county?

It's getting a little too crazy with 'metro sizing' and including all these counties as one area. Wonder if Mayor Jerry looks at all these counties to count on Louisville to help them out when tough times hit them.

meade county is a part of the louisville metro area. nelson and scott county are not. they are a part of the louisville CSA. also, johnsonkk, the louisville metro area actually has some of the fewest counties compared to other metro areas. also, counties in kentucky are some of the smallest in the nation, given that kentucky has the third largest amount of counties of any state. so i don't think the louisville metro area is really getting that crazy. and why would louisville help other surrounding counties? what kinds of help are you even talking about? being a part of a metropolitan area warrants a symbiotic relationship. everyone counts on everyone. money flows from county to county and people work and live in different counties. we are all a part of one state, kentucky, and that's all that matters. not really sure where or what you're trying to get at here???
