But if we use raw numbers instead of percentages then Illinois grew the fastest. Indiana is not gaining in population on Illinois.

I would certainly hope that Illinois got more raw numerical gain than Indiana, considering Illinois has double the population of Indiana.

I'd like to see the rest of the midwest though. It's great that we're growing well, but I doubt it's the fastest percentage in the midwest. We're still going to lose our 14th spot though, if we haven't already. Washington is just growing too fast for us to keep up.

The sad thing is (and this goes for a lot of stats all across the country) almost all of the growth is sprawl (unplanned development).

poor ohio, is getting farther and farther away from IL in population. Indiana with 6 million+ people, with 2.6% percent isnt that much, compare to IL with nearly 13 million, growing by 2.4%

Watch out for Arizona. Indiana isn't safe in the top 15 for long...

At this same rate Arizonia is going to surpass Missouri next year, surpass Tennesee in early 2007 if not sooner. Arizonia may surpass Washignton, Massachusets, and Indiana by 2010.

not surprise if gain 3 more electoral colleges, and most north-eastern state might lose one or 2.

I guarantee you that DC will have more than that in 2020. DC's loss in pop. will stop by 2010 IMO. I could see VA being a little closer to NJ too. These rates are done by the current rates right?

I assumed you got those from the Census. If you didn't, you need to cite the information.

I remembered there was an article back in the 50's saying Chicago should be well over 4 million today, Phoenix didnt hit 1 million, and Buffalo hitting 3 million.

My point is, current rates could change like the example I put up ^.

dont put too much stock into these estimates. from past google searches, Illinois was not projected to hit 11.5 million by 2000 in the 1980s. In the 1990s, they did not project the state surpassing 12 million. And behold, we hit 12.5 million on 2000. I dont even need to mention how they micalculated the population of chicago by a quarter of a million (+120,000 instead of -200,000).

I could see Illinois being somewhere near 13.7 million in 2010... the way the city and suburbs are booming, as well as a revitalizing Metro East... God bless Mexcio :)

^ and China.. yes, I think Metro East will grow also. Rockford may grow quickly. Quad cities may grow too.

Of course we cant for get about Chicago... yes it will grow and then laugh at the mistake that chicago lost population when it hit 3 million soon.
