Tompkins County growing

I was just looking at 'Top 10' lists over at ePodunk (itself based in Trumansburg), and found this list of New York State county growth rates from the 2000 census to 2003. Tompkins is listed as the 3rd fastest-growing county, going from 96,501 to 101,411, a 5.1% increase. Cortland County was 42nd (of 63), growing 0.2%.

That 5.1% growth spurt may explain a bit about increasing housing costs in Tompkins County over that period. (Even in 2000, they were higher than surrounding counties.)
