In May, the Brookings Institute released its study of The State of Metropolitan America<http://www.brookings.edu/reports/2010/0509_metro_america.aspx>. This report projects what we can expect to see in the 2010 Census. The US Census Bureau has now released their last population estimate for places, covering 2009 before they begin to release the actual 2010 census results in December. Every decade, as the census results are released, significant changes are made in where business choose to build, expand and relocate based on the data and indicated consumer and population trends. Beverly Kerr with the Chamber of Commerce, reports on this last census estimate and how Austin and Texas rank.
