Why is Buffalo's population increasing? Good quiz, though it pains me to see my state losing so many people.

Cool quiz. I'm not sure the data is truly indicative of shrinking, though. For example, Jacksonville NC's 2000 population was 66,715. 2010 it was 70,145. Forbes magazine named it the 5th fastest-growing small city in America earlier this month.

There's a city in Rhode Island other than Providence? News to me. I should have gotten Youngstown, though. Dad grew up there...
