Meck Times poll results: NC population growth stems from 3 factors

From 2000 to 2010, North Carolina’s population grew 18.5 percent from 2000, according to 2010 Census Bureau data.

That growth is the result of three factors combined — job opportunities, the state’s central location on the East Coast and nice weather — according to the results of a Mecklenburg Times online poll.

A total of 76 percent of voters said all three factors have drawn people to the state, while 12 percent chose nice weather, 7 percent chose its central location on the East Coast and 5 percent chose job opportunities.

The Mecklenburg Times has posted a new online poll question: Should the city limit the number of taxicab companies that service Charlotte/Douglas International Airport?
