Sort of a list/ranking:

2015 Census numbers out and estimate KC at 475,378.

Wonder what the number breakdown and growth is in Buda (Northland) vs Pest (South of River)

Or even a further breakdown in Pest - pre 50's annexation area and then the annexation area.

One would have to hypothesize that pre-annexation Pest is still losing population at rust belt levels, with stable pops in the SW Corridor and midtown, growth downtown, and hemorrhagic loss on the east side (with the exception of certain tracts in Northeast).

Inner Buda is probably still modestly losing while hinterlands Buda, aka, South Slovakia, is booming.

There has to be at least a slight increase in population in the SW Corridor and Midtown to support rising rents and the amount of investment MAC properties and others are increasing in these areas of the urban core. The lower income population of midtown will subsequently move where it's cheaper in the eastside likely spurring more development in that direction. Right? RIGHT?!

I'm obviously no demographer, but I doubt that it's enough to offset shrinkage from persons per household.

In KCMO as a whole, about one out of three households are those of single people living alone, I would wager in older neighborhoods centrally-located south of the river it's higher. The average household in KCMO has 2.37 people. I think the last statistic I saw was that around 28 percent of households in KCMO were those with children. Keep in mind that isn't necessarily a two-parent household. That would include a one-adult, one child household.

To make the analogy work, south Slovakia does seem to be coming up from what I could tell...

KC metro ranks #1 for 'business growth' by a long shot according to Wendover...

"We were surprised at first, but as we dug deeper the Kansas City numbers made sense," said Larry Dillon, CEO of Wendover and InsightPRM, and developer of the Business Growth Index. "We found large-scale expansions in health, legal services, and real estate in Kansas City. We also spoke with the KCADC about changes in the business environment, and they referenced the introduction of Google Fiber and the Cisco Smart City Initiative as major drivers of development in the area over the past few years."

That is pretty incredible. There is a fault in looking at percentages over real numbers, but it is still very encouraging.

Yeah, percentages will do that but is out of 55 markets total surveyed, not of just those listed. Surprised to see Houston is below avg.

More from the PDF...

Kansas City’s growth index score increase shows it is not just home to high-growth companies. The companies in the region have continued to increase their rates of growth, and more fast-growing companies have also been attracted to the city. We surveyed more than 9,500 companies quarterly in the Kansas City metro area, and found some industries which appear to be doing particularly well in the region.

The US average business growth index rose approximately 10% from the 2015 average through Q3 2016. This trend is reflected with increased business growth index averages across 55 US metro areas investigated for this report. Kansas City and Phoenix had the largest increases in relative business growth rates, 24% higher than their 2015 scores. San Diego was close behind with a 23% increase in their relative business growth rate. Chicago and Philadelphia both lagged behind the national average gains in growth rates, with only 7% and 5% increases respectively.

Oil industry lull. The industry is so dominant that everything in the city rises/falls with it.

Yeah, figured so. Thought Houston had a more diverse economy to maintain above avg growth.

While it may be more diversified than it once was, it's still highly dependent on the oil industry. Even the Houston medical industry ebbs and flows with oil industry fortunes. That said, I just sold my house there, even with the downturn, I sold it pretty quickly and actually made money on it so things are not absolutely horrible.

^Yeah, still more tied to oil than I realized.

More from the PDF on KC...

While the real estate industry saw a modest 2% gain nationally, the industry in Kansas City experienced an 11% boost over the past 12
months. The Emerging Trends in Real Estate 2016 report also named 18-hour cities like Kansas City as the most favorable for investment and
development in 2016, citing the better opportunities and potential for larger yield compared to traditional gateway cities like New York. The real
estate industry in Kansas City is likely bolstered by the high growth of companies in the region. As businesses grow, they seek new office spaces
to accommodate their expanded workforce. New employees attracted to the region also require housing. Kansas City’s real estate industry has
naturally benefited from this increased demand, and has also been able to grow in the Kansas City region.

Unsure where to put this, so it's here. 12/16 KCBJ is pretty much devoted to this past year's real estate deals. Worth picking up a copy, I think.

Considering the sardonic tone of other parts of the "in" column I have a sneaking suspicion this is not necessarily a compliment.
