Yeah, they've basically grown in parallel for the last two decades. Florida probably has a better chance of catching Texas.

Did you say Texas will be bigger than California in 5 years?

Texas will slow down (it already has) as it becomes more expensive. Those same people looking for lower costs will move somewhere else.

florida has the same problem as california of sinking. texas only has flooding and heat is a big issue, california and florida are real hot also though. texas would be the last place id move to if i was moving from california or one of the failing states. i love the cold.

I get the impression that most Californians are moving to California, TX, AKA: Austin ... presumably due to cultural similarities but much better bang-for-buck.

How is California sinking? It seems best positioned of those three states against the threat of rising sea levels, but maybe I'm missing something.

Austin gets so much in-migration from the entire country that Californians don’t really make much difference proportionally, even if they are numerically still a large number.

We've seen decennial data for Mexico, Sweden and Denmark. Now Austria:


Code:
1981 ---- 7.555.338

1991 ---- 7.795.786 --- 3.18%

2001 ---- 8.032.857 --- 3.04%

2011 ---- 8.401.940 --- 4.59%

2021 ---- 8.933.346 --- 6.32%
As many other Western European countries, Austria is growing faster.

And Vienna agglomeration (1,110 km²), two decades straight at double-digit rates:

Code:
1981 ---- 1.772.716

1991 ---- 1.799.095 --- 1.49%

2001 ---- 1.830.053 --- 1.72%

2011 ---- 2.020.194 -- 10.39%

2021 ---- 2.248.526 -- 11.30%

--- Mexico City growth didn't collapse as estimates suggested. In fact, it seems to be converging with the national average.

--- Monterrey overtook Guadalajara as the country's 2nd city and it grew faster than the past decade? Maybe US Mexicans returning?

High natality rate. Nothing strange there since Mexico is still a developing country.

It’s still very cheap in comparison to the coasts. Texas has the weather and low tax environment. That’s not gonna change anytime soon so I expect Texas to become the most populous state in the country by 2050.

People will find a cheaper place to live.
Its gonna happen. You can't expect trends to stay the same, and Texas growth is already slowing.

All long-term predictions are useless. Within 30 years, everything can happen, including Texas losing people for cheaper Oklahoma, Arkansas, Nebraska or even some Rust Belt state. Who knows the new trends?

California, for instance, had a great 2000's (10% growth or 3.5 million people), with San Francisco metro area once again speeding up. Now, merely 10 years later, the state population is shrinking. Things change fast, specially in the US where people keep moving like crazy.

Brazil was unique in Latin America for always having strong and prosperous regional centres all over the country, exerting strong influence over their hinterlands. It seems Mexico is finally join this US, Canada and Brazil club, developing a network of metropolises.

The American population as a whole is growing at a much slower rate than anytime in almost a century.

Mexico's natality rate is low; barely more than that of the U.S.

Its urban centers are growing because the countryside is emptying out and immigration to U.S. has cratered. Look at the crazy growth rates in Queretaro, which centers on a region famous for exporting its people to the U.S.

Really all of Latin America has a crashing natality rate. A country doesn't need to be wealthy to have low birthrates. Secularism and birth control will do the trick.

There a LOT of people from California around here. You have to beat them back with a stick. That said, I hope we don't get to a point where Texas suprasses CA in population.

I wonder when Californians will discover northern LA and Kern counties. It's hot AF but affordable and close to the LA area.

I personally don't see Florida gaining on Texas anytime soon. In fact it's the opposite. Texas has been pulling away for a while now with a 5 million gap between the two in 2000 to a 8 million gap in 2020.

2020 United States vital stats are available: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demogr...tics_from_1935

Births: 3,605,201
Deaths: 3,361,760

A shocking 500,000 increase on deaths, while births continue to collapse, the lowest number since 1979, when the overall population was only 2/3 of today's.

Natural growth was only 243k in 2020, down from 890k in 2019 and from 1.9 million in 2007.

TFR is not available yet, but it seems to have fallen below 1.65, and that's the 13th year straight where it's lower than the previous year.
