-Louisville, Kentucky is officially up to 700,000 people
-Cuyahoga County, Ohio which includes Cleveland lost 10,000 people
-Franklin County, Ohio (Columbus) had a weak showing only gaining 2,000 people
-San Francisco County lost another 7,000 people, dropping to 744,000 people
-Hamilton County, Ohio lost 8,000 and is down to 814,000 people
-Allegheny County, PA (Pittsburgh) lost 9,000 people, which means the population loss is intensifying,
-Los Angeles might be to 10 million people this time next year.

-Maricopa County, Arizona gained 113,000 people last year, and has surpassed three and a half million

-Clark County, Arizona gained about 75,000 people, the county population alone is the about the same population as Indianapolis and Columbus metro area

-New Orleans continued its 5,000 person annual loss

-Ramsey County, Minnesota lost around 5,000 people going under 500,000 people and Hennepin County is about the same as 2003. I think thats ridiculous Hennepin and Ramsey counties are building so fast they cant keep up.

-St. Louis, Missouri lost 5,000 people, last year slidding to 343,000 people (estimate)

Thank You ^

Wow Kendall County and Will county(both in the chicago metro)!!!!!

Kendall wasnt suprising as Chicago is sprawling west and Kendall county is close to Aurora, Naperville, Joliet, which are #2,4,5 respectively in Illinois largest city.

Wow Souix Falls, SD is growing!!
No surprise at Maricopa county, AZ. As like 10 of my family members just move there last summer.

Cook county is losing population(some of my family members is too blame, as they move to the suburb of willowbrook in Dupage County).

off topic: (IS DC a city and a county, as well as an area for the captial given up land from Maryland)IS Washington DC STILL losing population? If it is still losing population, only the goveremnt officals are left living in the city,

There's nothing wrong with healthy growth, but I don't think it's really something to be proud of if you have tens/hundreds of thousands of people moving in in just one year. That's ridiculous. Ironically, that should be a cause for alarm, especially with gas prices as high as they are.

Yeah, it is still losing population which is surprising to many, in 5 yrs, I think it will have stopped shrinking. No, DC is not just government officials. Most gov't officials live outside of DC, it's not as bad as you think.

It's not really a surprise, but Loudoun County, VA has been the fastest growing of
all counties in the nation over the past 4 yrs with a 41 percent growth rate. And it's the biggest of all the those in the top 10 which is pretty impressive.

I don't know whether to be happy or not, I sure as hell don't like this outer ring sprawl, but it's good for the state that it has 10 in the top 100.

Did you mean Nevada? and also the county alone is larger in square miles(7,910) than the metro's of Indy(6009) and Columbus(6020).

I hope Columbus's growth is not slowing down but it doesn't look too good.

Yeah, This is Franklin County,Ohio gained only gained 2,000 people, The city of Columbus might have lost a few people when the figures for 2004 come out. Columbus has unemployment well above 6% now, this is about triple the unemployment rate of a few years ago. I really think Columbus is losing alot of steam in the city proper, the crime rate is way up and the economy isnt growing.

Washington is the city. DC is not a county, but the name of the federal district where Washington is located.

Washington and/or the District of Columbia is a state-equivalent, a county-equivalent, and a city-equivalent.

Mexico City, Brasilia, and Canberra are similar examples

Actually, it's not quite a state equivalent because it gets NO representation in American Congress (which really sucks, IMO). It is a county/city equivalent, though. It is very much like Puerto Rico or any other American territory.
