Background on Population Growth
Here is Columbia's population, charted from 1940 to 2016:
As of 2016, Columbia had a population of 120,612, nearly double what it was in 1980. Between 2010 and 2016, our population grew at an average rate of 1.77% per year. If we continue growing at this rate, our expected population in 2050 will be 219,620, and in 2100 it will be 530,199. The question then arises: how much further growth, and how rapid a rate of growth, do Columbia residents want?
