At 12:01am, the media embargo will be lifted and the general public will have access to the new 2016 estimates from the US Census website.. For a numbers geek like me, this is Christmas time all over again..

Stay tuned :thumb: ...

Hopefully they're not accounting for multiple time zones and are just going to wait until midnight in the east. I was up too late waiting for the media to report something the past two days. I'm tired tonight.

Omaha MSA- 2015: 915,312.
Omaha MSA- 2016: 924,129.

A very healthy 8,817 gain from 2015 to 2016. Omaha also distanced itself as the 59th largest MSA over Alberquerque NM- Alb at #60- 909,906..

Omaha's MSA has grown 6.8% since 2010 from 865,356 to 924,129 adding 58,773 in the 6 years since the 2010 census..

This is a start. More info to follow. If anyone gets the CSA info and other related Midwest metro area numbers, feel free to post :thumb: ...

So at this pace, the Omaha metro should reach the 1,000,000 milestone in about 2023.

It appears that a lot of people around the country are retiring. Many of the fastest growing metros had negative natural increase numbers, which implies to me that most of the people moving there are coming to live out their final years.

I'd say either 2023 or 2024. The CSA should hit the 1 million mark either 2020 or 2021...

Noticed that NE actually gained more people than IA since the 2015 est (13,351 vs 12,696) and of course increase in % (.7% vs .4%).

Agreed. We are not a city that is set up for a large retiree migration. However, we are doing well for natural increases, millenial growth and international migration.

You really cannot argue the fact that our rate and growth dynamic bodes very well for the future.

It might interest (and surprise) us to know of the top 20 metros in the Midwest region by population, Omaha's metro is the 4th largest in terms of % gain so far this decade (2010-2016).. See the list below-

Wow, I am surprised by that. I know that a lot of the bigger metros have stagnant growth in the midwest though. Like we have always said, Omaha has seen slow and steady growth, and that is always welcome news. Much rather see that than huge spikes in population followed by housing or job shortage crisis.

Omaha has certainly maintaned a healthy, steady growth rate for the past 16 years. The Omaha metro is currently on pace to grow by 11% this decade which matches its growth rate last decade. The metropolitan area has added nearly 60,000 residents since 2010.. That growth number should eclipse 100,000 by the official 2020 Census..

On to a 1 million metro by 2023/24 :thumb: ...

I note that of all Midwest metros, Des Moines is absolutely killing it. They are growing by way more actual people per year than Omaha, and at about a 40% faster growth rate than Omaha. All while Iowa as a state stagnates, as does most of Nebraska.
Both Omaha and Des Moines are growing at a noticeably faster clip than KC.

Seems like a continuation of people moving from rural areas to the bigger cities. I'm sure this trend will continue.

And Iowa has a much larger inventory of small cities and large towns that people would be moving from.

Omaha is doing quite well growth wise as evidenced by the numbers. At it relates to Des Moines, it also helps they are the state capital, centrally located within their state for easier "outstate" assesibility..and don't seem to have as much of the "anti Big city urban bias" Omaha still suffers a bit from here in Nebraska. A rural Nebraskan would just as likely (if not more so) choose to move to Lincoln rather than Omaha. It seems a different mindset in Iowa to an extent..as a move to Des Moines would be the next natural progression..

In any case, I'm very pleased with the Omaha metro growth rate.. And what has been a trend, the US Census traditionally lowballs the annual Omaha estimate..then when the official decade Census comes out, we are pleasantly surprised with an enhancement "bump" in our official numbers :;): ...
