This map reveals a wealth of stories. Explosive growth in places like Austin, TX, Boise, ID, Charlotte, NC, Las Vegas, NV, McAllen, TX, Raleigh, NC, and Riverside, CA shifted the center of population southward. Deindustrialization led to actual numerical decline in Buffalo, Cleveland, Dayton, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Toledo, and Youngstown. Hurricane Katrina reinforced the ongoing pattern of decline in New Orleans. In the Midwest, Minneapolis-St. Paul grew at a respectable rate, while Des Moines, Madison, and Omaha grew even faster.
