Outrun Change

We need to learn quickly to keep up with the massive change around us so we don't get run over. We need to outrun change.

Population estimates for Williston now and in 5 years

33,000 – Estimated residents in Williston now

44,000 – Estimate for 2017, five years out.

The Dickinson Press reports on an analysis by the state Department of Agriculture and Applied Economics. Their article is Study: Williston population 44K by 2017.

Here are the key data points to keep track of for the city of Williston:

  • 14,716 – 2010 population from U.S. Census
  • 18,000 – estimated permanent residents now
  • 15,000 – estimated temporary workers
  • 33,000 – current estimated population, including permanent residents and workers
  • 44,000 – estimated population in 2017

My son and daughter-in-law are part of the 15,000 workers living there because of the abundance of jobs.

Here are the estimates for Williams county:

  • 51,000 – estimated current population
  • 70,000 – estimate for 2017
