I heard a story this morning about the fastest growing cities according to the new Census population estimates.  I was curious to see what the population shifts look like across the nation.  So I put together this visualization to take a look.  At first glance, it looks like people have been moving west, near the water and towards places with abundant energy-related jobs.  And conversely many rural areas have undergone actual population loss.  Here is a link to a high resolution version.  I hope you’ll share your observations.
