From Mary Vogel, Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU):
From Eben Fodor, Fodor & Associates LLC, Eugene, Oregon:
“I have just completed a new study examining the relationship between growth and prosperity in US metro areas.
The study found that those metro areas with the most growth fared the worst in terms of basic measures of economic well-being.
The study looked at the 100 largest US metro areas (representing 66% of the total US population) using the latest federal data for the 2000-09 period.
The average annual population growth rate of each metro area was compared with unemployment rate, per capita income,
and poverty rate using graphical and statistical analysis.”
