US City-wise Population Growth and Unemployment

I conducted some basic analysis of US population growth in the 50 most populated US cities since 2010 and compared that with the unemployment rate in these cities.  Not surprisingly, there were some clear correlations: cities with high unemployment rates saw low population growth and vice versa.  Some highlights from the analysis:

  • The four cities with the most population growth since 2010 are Austin, Denver, New Orleans and Charlotte
  • The two cities with negative population growth since 2010 are Detroit and Cleveland.
Here is the web map that I created:

I also created an interactive web app based on this data.  To view the web app in all its glory, go here:

What conclusions can you draw from this data?
