Here we grow again!
Jonathan Pait
December 28, 2001

The 2001 census report just came out. It appears 50,999 new residents have joined us in South Carolina between April 1, 2000 and July 1, 2001. The state is still growing at a rate of 1.3 percent more than the 2000 estimate.

Last year’s census showed that the Upstate grew rapidly over the past decade. Greenville County led the way for the entire state growing 18.6 percent. Anderson followed with 14.1 percent and Spartanburg chimed in with 11.9 percent.

The new census breakdown for counties won’t be out until April. Will the Upstate still be the leader? What is it that you believe attributes to the growth in the Upstate? The Greenville News quotes Bobby Bowers, director of research for the South Carolina Budget and Control Board, as saying that “warm climate and the attraction of the beaches are among the reasons for the gains in the South” overall. Of course, the Upstate ain’t got no beaches.

The Census Bureau released its initial findings today.

The Greenville News also reported.

Do you think we will continue to see growth in our area with the decline in the economy? Has the leadership of the Upstate planned well for the growth? How does this growth affect our quality of life? We want to hear from you. Participate by clicking here.
