The Metro is stagnant/slow growth depending, attracts a lot of out of state people (sometimes transient sometimes permanent) but it looses as many people from the inner suburbs and outer city neighborhoods as it gains.

The central city still grows in a microcosm and the nicer suburbs are fine but everything middle class and down hemoreges natives to the south and west.

and its even worse in the smaller cities down-state.
