What about the Kingston and Newburgh-Poughkeepsie-Middletown metros? Also, what about micropolitan areas? I know that the Watertown and Plattsburgh areas have grown.

The 2010 Census figures released this week reveal that EVERY COUNTY [Orange, Dutchess, Rockland, Putnam, Westchester, Bronx, New York, Kings, Queens, Richmond, Nassau, Suffolk] in the downstate region of New York have experienced population gain during the last ten years.

Mid/Lower Hudson Valley Specifics: Poughkeepsie - Newburgh - Middletown NY Metro:

Orange County:
Quote:
The results of last year's population count show that Orange County grew 9.2 percent from 2000 to 2010, reaching 372,813. That growth rate ranked second among New York's 62 counties, trailing slightly behind Saratoga County's 9.5 percent.
Year - County - Population

2000 - Orange County - 341,367
2010 - Orange County - 372,813
+31,446

2000 - Dutchess County - 280,150
2010 - Dutchess County - 297,488
+17,338

Other Counties:

Rockland +24,934 -> 311,687
Westchester +25,654 -> 949,113

Sizable population gains in Sullivan and Ulster Counties as well, 4.8% and 2.7% respectively.

Hi bellafinzi,

The fact that you put this together is great, but your number for Ithaca's MSA is incorrect. The population in 2000 was 96,501. The number you have was an estimate from 2004.

No surprises here. Would have though Ithaca would have grown by a little more than it did; but other than that pretty much what I would have expected.

Buffalo....what's the deal? Seems like they keep shrinking by really large margins while Rochester, only an hour away, manages to show some growth.

I'm surprised too. I thought that Niagara County gained some people, as some towns showed gains.
