"Dramatic De-population" Remains a Myth

The US Census Bureau's 2007 population estimates are out. The data shows that the overall population of the 12 counties that comprise DOR is essentially unchanged from last year, at just under 1.5 million.

Looking back, we see that from April 1 2000 through April 1 2007 DOR's total population fell 0.6%, while from October 2000 through October 2007 DOR's Average October Mass Attendance dropped 22.2%.
