Central Jersey is getting more crowded

We didn't really need the US Census Bureau to tell us this, but new estimates show that the counties around Rutgers have continued to experience real population growth. Built out counties, like Union County, aren't growing much (0.41%). Those with some remaining undeveloped land have seen 5-8% growth rates (Somerset - 8.76%, Middlesex - 5.13%).

But to make sure you really see the patterns around you, the Home News has a Google Map mash-up that shows you the results for every municipality in Central Jersey. As you can see in the example above, Lebanon Borough grew over 75%! Way to grow guys.
