The U.S. Census Bureau this week released population growth numbers and percentages comparing 2011 with 2010 at the metro, micro and county levels. While jobs pretty much dictate housing sales, population numbers show the total pressure and ultimate demand for housing of rentals and ownership combined. In addition to housing, these data show the impact on infrastructure across various locations of the country.
Definition by U.S. Census Bureau:
”Metropolitan and micropolitan statistical areas (metro and micro areas) are geographic entities defined by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for use by Federal statistical agencies in collecting, tabulating, and publishing Federal statistics. The term “Core Based Statistical Area” (CBSA) is a collective term for both metro and micro areas. A metro area contains a core urban area of 50,000 or more population, and a micro area contains an urban core of at least 10,000 (but less than 50,000) population. Each metro or micro area consists of one or more counties and includes the counties containing the core urban area, as well as any adjacent counties that have a high degree of social and economic integration (as measured by commuting to work) with the urban core.”
