ok, I just read the article.

He's saying that will be the population in 2025.

"What will Kansas City look like in 2025? Something like this "
It’s the year 2025 and, wow, look at how Kansas City has changed for the better over the last decade.

The new Kansas City International Airport terminal just opened to rave reviews because of its convenient layout and modern passenger amenities.

▪ The streetcar extension to the County Club Plaza is carrying even more people than forecast.

▪ Supporters have rolled out drawings of a new downtown baseball stadium for the Royals, preparing for when the Truman Sports Complex leases expire in six years.


▪ Johnson County residents this year finally joined those in Jackson and Clay counties in paying a small sales tax to help operate the Kansas City Zoo. It’s on pace to draw more than 1.2 million visitors this year vs. 900,000 in 2015.

▪ Thanks to growth downtown as well as in the Northland, Kansas City’s total population recently passed 490,000 people. That’s a healthy gain over the 460,000 in the 2010 census.
the airport hasn't been built, we don't have a streetcar to the plaza, we don't have a downtown baseball stadium, JoCo doesn't have a zoo tax. So what makes you think that's the population right now?

No, you're reading it wrong - he's pretending it's 2025 and trying to guess what the city will look like in 10 years. I can't believe someone gets paid to write that kind of crap, especially someone who seems so out of touch with the urban community.

http://www.kansascity.com/opinion/opn-c ... 09790.html

Last Census.gov estimate for 2014 was 470K, 20K adds in one year doesn't sound right...
http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/29/2938000.html
The title of that opinion piece is "What will KC look like in 2025?"

Hah, I didn't catch the context. That's what happens when skimming it too quickly (easy to do with Yael) and before morning coffee. The past tense wording threw me off.

Given KCMO has shown it can grow 3500 in one year, 35K adds in 10 years is plausible, especially as KCMO seems to be gaining a bit more momentum.

They are not net, I think they are simply flow in both directions, not a +/- net. It might be inflow from those markets into KC but doesn't seem to line up with other stats.

Yael T. Abouhalkah: Upbeat census figures unveiled for Kansas City area — but not St. Louis

...

But look at the newly released figures that measure population changes from between the 2010 census and July 1, 2015:

▪ Jackson, Clay, Platte and Cass counties gained 36,062 people in that five-year stretch — slightly more than the 35,980 added in Johnson County.

▪ Platte was the fastest growing county in the area with a 7.6 percent growth rate. Johnson County was second at 6.6 percent, and Clay was third at 6.2 percent.

It’s more evident than ever that the longtime rush of growth to the southwest side of our region is being counter-balanced by strong growth in the Northland, especially in Platte and Clay counties.

▪ Meanwhile, Jackson County easily remained the area’s largest county with 687,623 people. Johnson County is next at 580,159. Jackson County added almost 13,400 residents despite the continued losses on Kansas City’s East Side. The surge of added population in downtown Kansas City helped stabilize the county’s population, as did continued growth in Lee’s Summit.

▪ And the surprising turnaround goes on in Wyandotte County, which was up by almost 6,000 people by mid-2015. That follows years of decline in the county. Most population gains have come in its western parts.

...

Kansas City has strongly boosted its population, growing from 459,787 in 2010 to 470,800 by mid-2014.

The MO side of metro has also been carrying the weight of job growth lately. And Jackson county picking up steam too.

From Jan 2015 to 2016, MO side employment grew by 2.6% while KS side grew only by 1.2% compared to 1.9% US avg.

Jackson county also improved raw unemployed # by 28% over a year, US avg being 12.5% improvement. KC metro as a whole improved unemployed by 25%.

County - 1yr Employment Growth - % Growth
Kansas City, Mo.-Ks. MSA 22577 2.3
Johnson, Ks. 5491 1.7
Leavenworth, Ks. 185 0.9
Linn, Ks. -65 -3.1
Miami, Ks. 132 1.6
Wyandotte, Ks. 2138 2.4
Bates, Mo. 48 1.3
Caldwell, Mo. 72 4.5
Cass, Mo. 1186 4.8
Clay, Mo. 3990 4.2
Clinton, Mo. 47 1.2
Jackson, Mo. 8788 2.5
Lafayette, Mo. 150 1.7
Platte, Mo. 121 0.3
Ray, Mo. 294 7.3

Many MO counties are above metro avg % growth. All KS counties (except WyCo) are below metro avg.

http://www.bls.gov/regions/mountain-pla ... _table.htm



STL county and city also improving unemployed better than US avg, though metro as a whole just below US avg...

http://www.bls.gov/regions/mountain-pla ... _table.htm

KC metro net wages ($12.1B) are relatively high compared to STL ($15.4B) given STL metro is nearly 30% larger. STL net wages only about 23% more.

But overall MO/KS at state level well behind national avg and neither KC/STL keeping up with hot markets.

What a fucking sad troll that guy is. Just a fucking hack, maybe a half step above Tony's KC. Maybe he should do an article about the Star's circulation versus the StL P-D's.

I can't wait for that paper to fold.

2015 KC metro population estimate at 2,087,471 up from 2,071,283 in 2014, or 16K growth in 1 year.
2015 STL metro at 2,811,588 up from 2,806,191 in 2014, or 5.4K growth in 1 yr.
http://factfinder2.census.gov/bkmk/tabl ... NNR.US24PR

KC metro not growing at same rate as in late 90s, when it was over 20K/year. KC metro should hit over 2.1M sometime this year.

For consolidated area, including KC, St Joe, Lawrence, (not Topeka), KC CSA is now at 2,428,362.
