The Census Bureau updated its survey of population trends. As part of CBS' Hitting Home series Kelly Cobiella told us that the collapsing housing market in Fort Lauderdale means that for the first time in the Census' series, the population of Broward County Fla is shrinking. On NBC, Martin Savidge noted the statistical quirk that Orleans Parish and Saint Bernard Parish in Louisiana are the nation's fastest growing counties--except they are not growing so much as recovering after Hurricane Katrina's depopulation. The pace of the growth in most of the rest of the Sun Belt is slowing because it is hard to sell a house at a good price to relocate: "Americans are starting a new trend--staying put."
