On this link below, click on the tab that reads Tennessee Localities. Where it says "Show (blank) entries" select ALL from the drop down menu. The Tennessee towns/cities will be listed in alphabetical order and you can view Population, Percent Change (2000 to 2010) and Population per Square Mile (population density).

Census 2010: Tennessee - USATODAY.com

The up and down arrow in each column allows you to reorder the data based on that column title, for example, population density from highest to lowest.

Anything jump out at you?

I'm surprised that Oak Ridge actually grew. Even though it grew by only 344, I think this is the first time Oak Ridge has been back above 29,000 in probably 30 years.

Otherwise, I don't see too many surprises. Half of the state's growth has taken place in the Nashville area, which is to be expected, and Memphis continues to bleed population even though it desperately tries to annex surrounding suburbs.

Oakland, Arlington and Atoka are due to Memphis flight and Spring Hill I get, but Medina? I've been there and there isn't a whole lot of anything there.
Is that from people moving to the Jackson area?

Or people fleeing the Jackson area.

No, 344 is the population density of Oak Ridge (number of people per square mile). It grew by over 2,000 people. I know when I was looking at Oak Ridge for moving, the population was about 27,300 - 27,500.

The question I have is why places like Spring Hill, Arlington and Oakland, none of which I know about personally, increased their populations by 276.4%, 348.3%, and 417.8%. DubbleT says it's Memphis flight. I believe I read about Spring Hill in relation to some kind of plant (auto maybe?) but the other 2 places don't ring a bell. That's just scary growth to me.

d'oh! You're right, Oak Ridge did grow quite dramatically. I mean, for Oak Ridge it was dramatic.

Spring Hill was home to a giant GM plant that is now shut down. However, in the meantime it became a popular Nashville exurb, a cheaper alternative to Franklin. Arlington and Oakland have benefitted from the mass exodus that's been taking place in Memphis.

The Tennessean has a page that I like better than USA Today's. It includes not only the populations and increases (or decreases) for every county and town in Tennessee, it includes racial statistics, percentage of unoccupied homes, and the percentage of residents over/under the age of 18:

My thought is if Ruthorford county has another decade like that, it's likely to overtake Hamilton as the state's fourth largest.

I think that is a real possibility, although maybe the new VW plant will help Hamilton County the same way the Nissan plant helped Rutherford County 25 years ago.

I think the new VW plant may be just enough to keep Rutherford out of reach by the next census. If both counties grow by the same numbers (not percentages) that they did over the last 10 years, Hamilton would stay ahead by about 20-25,000. Rutherford has been (at least until the recession) accelerating in growth numbers...so w/o the VW plant, it would've been conceivable that Rutherford would pass Hamilton.

I like Rutherford County, but I'm hoping that they tone down their growth a bit, at least until infrastructure catches up....and I hope that the VW plant is enough for Hamilton County to remain competitive (in numbers) to Knox County. Chattanooga & Co. have worked hard to revitalize that city, its downtown, and its riverfront...they certainly deserve a share of new development in town.
