This is a really great table. http://recenter.tamu.edu/data/popm/pm6280.htm

A couple things of note: It shows that in this decade we've been getting about twice as many international immigrants as we did in the 90's. It also shows that for some time now we've had a few thousand more deaths than births each year (no surprise, but neat to see the numbers).

It's intersting how the MSA population went up ever so slightly in the early 90's only to later continue its downward decline. My guess is that this aberration was due to the baby-boomlet which hit its peak at that time. Note the spike in births in 1991. Interestingly, 1990 was a low point when it came to births in the Pittsburgh MSA (nationally, 1990 had the highest number of births in recent history).

Yeah as mentioned the recession in the early 90's brought small gains to most every region. I was hoping that would have happened again during the recession this decade and while the losses were less during those years, it never reversed.

This is sucks, because the region gained what 20,000 net over the 3-4 years in the early 90s, helping to offset later losses. This decade is going to all losses and worse 5 drop. Ugh.
