People matter. With most policy initiatives in North Dakota, economic or otherwise, population represents an important constraint. I talk about natural increase across counties in North Dakota in this post.
I recently wrote about the net migration experience in North Dakota counties. I continue looking at the demographic developments in North Dakota with natural increase.
I was thinking about North Dakota and the population shifts and changes of the the last few years. The economics of the state are so clearly connected to the population changes, which are clearly connected to the economic changes in the state too. There really is an intense and important feedback relationship between population and economics in this state in particular.
