Residents Fleeing DeKalb


First of all, please visit DeKalb County Online for a terrific summary of the latest local population data and housing vacancy rates.

The 2010 Census constitutes a smack up the side of the head for the ivory tower types whose 2011 Commercial Notebook includes the prediction that DeKalb’s population would be found to exceed 50,000.

Will the smack lead to soul-searching and public policy changes? Image enhancement measures are more likely, I’d say. Hence the hyperbolic headline: a verbal raspberry.
