From CityLab yesterday on Why Nashville Can’t Quit Country Music:
“Thanks to a surging economy and an onrushing hot-city rep, the Music City has been gaining about 100 new residents a day.”
The “100 people per day” is a wonderful talking point for realtors and others leveraging growth to serve a special interest or to support a political argument. But it’s not true, or, to be more accurate, it’s not defensible using publicly available data. Ditto, Austin.
