Total Population & Growth Rate: Population growth reveals much about a community. Popular communities experience high rates of growth, bringing wanted economic benefits. In many cases, however, growth can also lead to concerns over traffic, the environment and essential services such as education. Locations experiencing slow rates of population growth, or even depopulation, may face fiscal difficulties and a downward spiral of further population loss, especially of their youth.

Population growth comes from two sources: the "natural" growth of births outpacing deaths as well as net in-migration. These are estimates based on the most recent decennial Census (in this case, the year 2010 Census). Since these are estimates, and not actual counts, there is room for some error, although the methods used are standardized and tested to reduce the size of the error. more information
