the tables seem to need some editing....it shows Jax growth at 1.5% but later shows 15%....which is it?

Also, San Jose and Denver are now FL cities?

Austin does have a state university and is the capital.

I noticed that, guess someone made an error, just a stab in the dark guess.

It looks like it was not ready to go live. I'll check with the census stats and attempt to fix it up.

The numbers for Jax seem low.  Weren't there numbers released last year that stated jax was around 886k?

no, those numbers are correct. The 2010 estimate is between 800,000 to 850,000. At the rate growth continues, COJ can top 1million by 2025-2030ish.

Alright, everything other than the growth rates of Florida cities 8-10, has been updated.  Its a good thing that a link to the actual numbers was posted in the article.

From my understanding, the 1.5% population growth represents the past year's growth, while the 14.8% represents growth between 200 and 2006.

Bare numbers like these don't reflect the numbers that go to Austin to go to school.  How about the number of folks flooding Mickey Mouseburg, that don't have a job, are retired, or never worked in the first place. Just imagine the boom going on in Orlando, future Wal-Mart capital of the World. Only St. Petersburg, "Florida's last resort", lives down to it's numbers. At least that 14.8% coming to Jacksonville are, or soon will be upward mobile professionals.

Opinions anyone? Can any of you find something better in Jacksonville, then the rest of Florida? Oh come on, let your hair down (does anyone still say that?) and have some fun. Take a poke at the competition for the old Hippie... Oh me first? Okay, you asked for it.

Orlando? Home to vermon, Wal-Mart, T-Shirt shops and $39.00 hotel rooms, career choices include: Waiting tables, pumping gas or  making beds, and making beds, pumping gas and waiting tables.

Miami? Land of canceled condo construction. The 6Th borough. Si habla Espanol? Had Mrs. Tuttles flowers wilted, Flagler or anybody else would have never moved here. Great City to build over the dune line, then get the rest of the State to fund beach restoration. Duh...

Okay, y'all are up to bat... knock em dead!

jax has the best original alternative music scene in fla--- also most progressive art scene, most representive of
todays contemporary art. but you wont know it by cable or e tv.  its underground, accessible by internet.
i always wondered why, after returning to jax from nyc, i  hit the element of urban art in jaxvillian flori duh. the numbers say it the biggest city in floriduh has appeal to manyartists w/ nyc "experience" (?). like that means something today. we still have A LOT to accomplish, but ot does answer my question. i thought jax pop numbers were less than 30th, even in metro area.

I agree about the local music scene.  I'd be willing to argue that there are more native Jax bands that hit the big time than almost any other city, certainly the south.
