  1. You're right. Your numbers match mine, so apparently I must have previously made a mistake with my math [don't tell my dad, who has a PhD in Math/Statistics!].
  2. I've seen that book and find that argument quite valid...this country grew largely through immigration.
  3. I’m curious to see Metroplan’s official take on the final numbers, and in particular, what their projected trends are for the next 10. They did a 30 year projection in 2000 that was on target for 2010 but now off track for 2020…they didn’t anticipate slowing birth rates or perhaps a slowdown in migration. Who knows…the metro has grown slowly a few times here and there (1980’s), then really reversed those trends in following decades and grown rapidly (1990-2010). It’s interesting to try and estimate!

  4. From 2000-2010, the metro added about 90,000, whereas from 2010-2020, it added about 50,000. There are lots of factors impacting growth of course, but the difference (or drop-off) of net migration from 50,000 to about 20,000 would constitute most of the difference in growth. It is interesting, because I recall reading in a Metroplan report a few years ago that they attributed the slowdown in growth this decade primarily to waning birth rates (nationwide), sort of inferring that the net migration in Central Arkansas hadn't changed much. The data shows that net migration has slowed, which is
  5. The DemGaz published an article today on data trends from the 2020 Census as observed by Metroplan...specifically concerns about slowing "migration" trends: https://www.arkansasonline.com/news/2021/aug/30/central-arkansas-slower-growth-in-last-decade/ A quote from the article: "But Townsell's concern was not only about the declining growth rate in the region's population, but also about how the population grew. From 2000 to 2010, the population growth was fueled more by net migration, in which more people moved into the region than left the region, than by natural growth -- births
  6. I think you're off by a couple hundred people (I think Saline grew 15,763 versus Pulaski at 15,549)...but still, point well-made. Impressive indeed.
  7. Ha ha, true! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. It’s not a bad idea, but for the record, elevated parks over freeways are SUPER expensive to construct and maintain. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Agreed. At some point recently, the census bureau had estimated that Conway actually passed NLR, which is why they officially changed the MSA name to “Little Rock-Conway-North Little Rock”… Honestly, Conway’s modest/slow growth this past decade is a notable event. Surprising really. On the flip side, Little Rock proper adding nearly 10,000 people is huge. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Census 2020 County/City Data was released today...below is a quick summary: Little Rock-Conway-North Little Rock MSA: Pulaski 399,125 barely missed 400K mark Saline 123,416 Faulkner 123,498 Lonoke 74,015 Grant 17,958 Perry 10,019 TOTAL 748,031 approximately 7.0% growth from 699,757 in 2010 reflects slower growt
  11. This past weekend I drove by what is obviously a new casino/hotel under construction at Southland in West Memphis. Clearly this is going to be the tallest building in Arkansas outside of Little Rock. It looks to be at 20 stories so far, and I’m unsure what height is planned. Pretty shocking to see this the other day!
  12. I didn’t know where to put this given that this is in West Memphis, but drove by what is obviously a new casino/hotel under construction at Southland in West Memphis. Clearly this is going to be the tallest building in Arkansas outside of Little Rock. It looks to be at 20 stories so far, and I’m unsure what height is planned. Pretty shocking to see this the other day! p.s. I may “cross-post” this in the Arkansas forum (though I’m unsure how much activity there is in that forum).
  13. Those are photos of one of two movies currently under production downtown (one staring John Cusack)...very cool.
  14. I believe I saw it on airliners.net (major worldwide airline forum), but it may have been a separate article I saw somewhere. My apology…I should have linked the source in the first place. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Southwest announced that LIT-PHX is returning in November.
