That's the number of people St. Louis was said to have by the U.S. Census Bureau's July 1, 2008 estimates. This is down from 355,663 in July 1, 2007.
But as today's Post-Dispatch article mentions, the city has successfully challenged annual Census estimates since 2003, all having been revised upward by several thousand people.
Will Mayor Slay challenge this number? What do you think it will be revised to? What's your anecdotal sense of the state of growth/decline in the city? How important is a higher population for the City of St. Louis?
