^^^uhm - ooops my bad and apologies. You are correct!

ha ha, don't apologize, just answer how it could be possible! (the disparity between home value and income)

I know, I suppose anything is POSSIBLE, it just doesn't make sense.

In a little more than 24 hours we'll have an official count on the U.S. populations as the U.S. census is scheduled for an 11:00 a.m. Tuesday release of the 2010 count data.

It looks like the Census Data has been released and NC stands at just over 9.5M. I have to say I'm a little disappointed we didn't break 10M. The Charlotte Observer Story can be found here. LINK

It also looks like we will keep 13 Reps in the House while SC, and Ga gain 1 while Fl will gain 2 (Texas gains 4). Edit: It does appear that NC moves back into the top 10 most populated states (passing NJ, but trailing Ga) at the tenth spot after being the 6th fastest growing state over the past 10 years.

I'd say that officially we'll pass Michigan by the 2020 census...unofficially much sooner...perhaps 2-3 years?

^^^ I agree about Michigan and I personally believe that we will pass Georgia as well within 5 years.

On an interesting note. I read the competing DNC 2012 city papers for their take on census data and came across the below in the Star Tribune. Not certain of the veracity of the correlation they draw btwn NC and MN but I'm astonished at how close we were to another seat gain

Minnesota received the final seat in the reapportionment process of redrawing congressional boundaries, hanging onto its eight seats by less than 9,000 people. Had the state counted 8,739 fewer people -- or if North Carolina had 15,754 more people -- Minnesota would have lost a seat, said Kimball Brace, president of Election Data Services, which analyzes census data.

Does anyone know when the actual Cities and Counties Population Results will be released?

Late February/Early March is what I heard from some news source

I've put together a rough spreadsheet of the Charlotte Region's Population. I used the counties listed in Wikipedia's Charlotte CSA Description for my county list (although the only extra NC county included, compared to the Urban Institutes' Charlotte Region Definition, was Alexander). Please make suggestions or suggest corrections as needed. I have to say the total came in a little lower than expected (although some of that might be due to having to use estimated data for SC populations at this point). LINK

Edit: corrected spelling of Wikipedia

The Urban Area number is from the 2000 census, during which Charlotte was only 540,828. So Charlotte city was 71% of the Urban Area.

The US Census has redfined their definition for UA. Under this new definition Charlotte, Gastonia, Concord, and Rock Hill UAs will be rejoined. The estimates using the 3 year ACS stats puts the population at just over 1.2 million. I will add the link later.

There is some debate over on the state-level NC Census thread about Louisville jumping ahead of Charlotte due to it's city-county consolidation that took place since the 2000 count. That would leave Charlotte at 18.

The census ranks consolidated cities based on their balance population. That is the county's overall population minus the population incorporated towns in that county. The census bureau does not include the suburban towns as part of their statistical analysis, Therefore, even though the Louisville-Jefferson County metro government has 741K people about 200K of that will not be included into "Louisville's" population because those 200K are in suburban towns.
