Population Increases in the D.C. Metro Area

Interesting information about the demographics changing in the D.C. metropolitan area.

The census bureau came out with numbers showing that the District has gained 16,000 in population since spring of 2010. This is big news, since the rest of the country is showing the slowest growth since the end of World War II.

The Washington Post said:

"...the District routinely shows up on lists of cool cities where young people gravitate, and it is drawing as many young adults as ultra-hip Austin and Portland, Oregon....Three out of four newcomers in recent years have been between the age of 18 and 34."

Hope everyone had a wonderful Mardi Gras :)
