Cowtown Cheerleaders Spinning Stagnant Kansas City Population Bust
To REALLY put things in perspective, hottie Jordan Carver has more social media followers than KC has residents . . .
And so, here's one more peek at other cities passing up this town in terms of growth as all of the local talk about "momentum" doesn't jibe with big picture data.
This growth brings our 14-county metro population to a total of 2,143,651, making us the 31st largest metro in the U.S. Last year, Kansas City was the 30th largest, but Austin, Texas, pulled ahead by adding 53,086 residents.
Within the metro, Johnson County saw the most growth between 2017 and 2018, followed by Clay, Jackson, Platte and Cass counties. These five counties accounted for 96 percent of the metro’s growth.
