Population Growth of Upstate NY Counties from 1970 to 2007.

Red ~ Population Loss
Blue ~ Population Gain



This map is a rough estimate based on statistics found in the following website: Population and Household Data
The change in population aren't perfect, so please don't expect them to be exact figures for each county.

Sorry for the poor quality. I made it myself.

Thanks for that Bellafinzi- it's rather interesting.

'Course you left out a few downstate counties! I'd guess there'd be some pretty big, blue numbers there.

My County...Onondaga County....is sadly one of the "red counties". It lost about 16,000 people in the last 37 years.....

Hopefully, before Spitzer's four year term as Governor is up my county will join the "blue counties". Of course, that's "IF" Spitzer actually keeps his campaign promise.

You're welcome!

Yes, you are correct. Not including Long Island and NYC boroughs, all downstate counties gained population. Most had substantial gains.

Thanks bellafinzi.

Are there one too many zeroes on Erie County or is it really negative 200,000???

This really depresses me and I'm not even from Western NY. I have visited Buffalo a number of times for work and have always enjoyed the city and the people...How sad.

Glad you like the map.

Nice job Bellafinzi. Good stuff for some, not so good for others. Hope the next map done has more good ews than bad. Thanks.

Very nice work. Having a diagram is so helpful in putting numbers in perspective sometimes.
