Aren't most of the Census Bureau's estimates based on home sales data? Maybe Rhode Island, New York, Michigan, and Louisiana didn't have significant home sales last year?

California must have almost as many people moving out as are moving in by the looks of the modest percentage of growth. I imagine that housing prices have alot to do with it. There is one state that I've always thought would start growing by leaps and bounds and that's New Mexico. The climate is desireable and places like Santa Fe and Albuquerque are very attractive cities.

Something to note: Alabama's growth rate has more than doubled compared to the y2k to y2005.


Anyone have an explanation for such dramatic change in such a short period of time? I know a relatively nice economy has been a plus, also I wonder how much of the growth was Hispanics? Was there some type of stigma that has faded? Any perception change nationally for you guys living outside the south?

Good, a state with bad policy emanating from itself loses a seat. Great news. Thanks for the update. The seat will be gained by a Texas, Georgia, Arizona, etc that is producing results.

as per austin's question on Alabama's sudden growth, my guess, as someone who lives far away from the South, would be Katrina refugees. anyone closer to the area know something definitive? the NW perception of Alabama hasn't changed

Pennsylvania's growth is really starting to pick up. A couple of years ago we would have been close to the bottom of that list. Two suprising states are North Dakota and West Virginia.

My theory (probably wrong) is that we were undercounted in 2005, so some of this 2005-to-2006 "growth" could be the census finally crediting some of the people who were already living here.

Despite temporary losses from Katrina, Mississippi has some bright spots.
The two main casino areas, Biloxi and Tunica, have very bright futures, and some individual towns around the state like Tupelo and Oxford seem to be doing pretty well for themselves. What MS doesn't have is a growing, major urban area.

PA's growth is only due to the fact that NYC's sprawl is reaching into the Poconos and Lehigh Valley, and DC/Balto's sprawl is reaching into South-Central PA. It's kinda vomit-inducing growth.

To an extent. But because they have less municipal fragmentation and more liberal annexation laws, suburban growth in the Sunbelt is less likely to put additional tax burderns on inner city residents, as it does in the Northeast.

The Census numbers are B.S. How can Nevada add only 83,228 when a count of active residential power meters shows Clark County (Las Vegas) alone added 97,000 over the same time period?

How many previously-active residential power meters were inactivated during that same time period in Nevada?

That might account for some of the difference.

I wonder if this could be explained by the second home market in Vegas?

But not more than Texas. By a long shot. New York is hemorrhaging people. Texas is growing by leaps and bounds. Austin and San Antonio are two of the fastest growing cities in the country and Dallas and Houston aren't much far behind. New York has snowy, cold winters though and I miss that about the North. I used to live in Virginia prior to moving to San Antonio and the summer's are murder down here.

Yes...Texas is growing fast, but it is extremely polluted! The air quality in Houston and Dallas is deplorable. As the state gets more polluted it will become less desirable. The state will also eventually have to raise taxes to repair its mega freeway system and crumbling school system. (ranked 50th in the dropout rate)
