WASHINGTON (AP) — Nearly two-thirds of the world's population will live in cities by 2030, with most people middle class, connected by technology, protected by advanced health care and linked by countries that work together, perhaps with the United States and China cooperating to lead the way.
North Dakota’s population will break 800,000 by the end of the decade, according to state projections released Monday — and the state will need thousands of new housing units per year to meet burgeoning demand.

A recent report from the state Data Center in Fargo revealed a boomlet in the number of preschoolers in North Dakota’s oil patch. The numbers were surprising and encouraging in light of the west river country’s decades of depopulation. But the test will be whether the snapshot is the start of a trend, and whether a trend will evolve into sustained population growth, or at least stability. Given the region’s history, it might be wise to hold the applause.
