Here's a bit of nice news the local civic boosters are spamming to social media message boards . . .
"Kansas City now at its highest population ever growing 10.5% since 2010. It now has 508,090 residents."

Compare that with 459,787 in 2010.
Population, percent change - April 1, 2010 (estimates base) to July 1, 2019, (V2019) - + 7.7%
The numbers are probably a great deal higher when we factor in all of the homeless dumped on KCMO by suburban smokies along with illegal aliens/undocumented who typically don't like to fill out paper work.
