I notice Berry Hill at #50 on the list with 548 residents. I would expect a significant jump in the upcoming years.

Population growth by the end of 2014: 55% or something crazy...

I would like to add that while these are just estimates, it does show that Nashville is taking a larger share of the metropolitan growth, which is a good sign. I don't think we can expect the suburban growth to slow down significantly, but this does follow the national trend that more people -- especially the younger generations -- would rather live in the city.

 

These estimates show Nashville capturing about 2/5 of the overall metro growth, as opposed to about 1/5 from 2000-2010.

 

We'll see if it holds true over the long term...but if these numbers are close to accurate, I would say the core building spree has just begun.

Does anyone know how the census bureau derives its estimates? I'm curious if their methods will be able to account for a 50% increase in the number of residents that are in a small place like Berry Hill.

The city of Nashville was 15th in the nation in total growth in that time span.  Pretty impressive for the 25th biggest city!

 

Also, it's still incredible for me to think that Murfreesboro is now bigger than Lansing, MI and Clarksville is now bigger than Dayton, OH.  Obviously, the latter two are far larger when metros are considered, but still.

From what I understand, a lot of it is survey based. I think they also rely some on local estimates, and things such as birth/death records.

 

I certainly wouldn't call it fact. If X city passes Y city in the estimates, it's still not official. They are known for being way under and way over when it comes time for the decennial census.
