Did America’s moms and dads and potential parents see the meltdown coming before the economists?
Just before the earliest stages of the recession, there was a steep decline in the population growth of children less than a year old, newly released census figures show.

The city’s lack of growth and train noise turned out to be the two greatest concerns to Jamestown residents ac-cording to results of the first city survey.
Consultants Jayden Chuppe, Chad Pranke and Sara Schuchard presented their analysis of nearly 1,400 survey results — a 20 percent return — to the City Council last week. The Jamestown College students are in Dr. Mort Sarabakhsh’s senior marketing class and analyzed the data.
Theodore Roosevelt National Park is holding public meetings on its draft plan to reduce the park’s elk herd, while North Dakota wildlife officials continue lobbying for a new option. State lawmakers also have entered into the debate.
The U.S. Census Bureau today released the agency’s 2008 national and state population estimates, showing growth in North Dakota of 3,577 people to a new estimated population of 641,481. The North Dakota Census Committee, which is made up of representatives from the State Data Center at NDSU, the North Dakota Office of Management and Budget, the Commerce Department, Job Service North Dakota and the Office of the Tax Commissioner, analyzed the population estimate for the state.
In 2004 64 percent of voting-age citizens took part in the presidential election. Many citizens who do not vote choose not to participate in the process because they believe that their vote does not count. In some instances, because of the Electoral College, they may be correct.
The Electoral College is composed of representatives elected by the state. These representatives cast the final vote for a party from each state. People feel as though their vote doesn’t count because the representative may or may not decide to follow the popular vote of his or her state.

There are fewer of us, at least according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
The latest estimates released by the Census Bureau say the population of Jamestown de-clined from an estimate of 14,844 on July 1, 2006, to 14,680 as of July 1, 2007 for a net decrease of 164 people. The 2007 estimates are the most recent figures available and were released in July.
The same report showed the population of Stutsman County declined from 20,766 in 2006 to 20,480 in 2007 amounting to a decrease of 286 people. No city in Stutsman County saw a population increase between the 2006 and 2007 estimates.
In a March 27 story about the population growth in Bismarck and Fargo, The Associated Press reported erroneously that the two cities showed better than a 2 percent increase in population from July 2006 to July 2007. The Census Bureau estimates Bismarck grew 2 percent and Fargo grew 1.7 percent.
Bear with the seeming contradiction: Cass County gained more people over the past year than North Dakota did in the latest census estimates.
That’s right. Cass County’s estimated population grew by 2,424 during the year ending July 1, 2007, a period that saw North Dakota’s overall population gain 2,255, according to new census figures.
