I think we're still fighting the effects of gentrification in the inner city in terms of overall population numbers. As more "traditional" families are settling in the center city neighborhoods, the poorer families with many people living under one roof are leaving for more immediate suburbs (Aurora seems to be a popular destination right now).

I suspect that's really depressing overall growth numbers.
