Metropolitan area growth

The Census Bureau released populations estimates yesterday on metropolitan areas in the United States. According to the press release Greeley, CO our neighbor to the north was the second fastest growing city (percent wise) in the US, with a 31% increase between April 2000 and July 2006.

Want to check out the data itself? Check out the metropolitan and micropolitan statistical areas section of the population estimates.

If you check out the data you will find that Boulder only had a 4.6% increase, whereas the Denver metropolitan area saw an overall increase in population of 10.5% (table).

The site also has a number of nice maps, including this one that illustrates the table from above.
