On second thought, Miami-Dade County's population is bigger than originally estimated.
That's the conclusion of the U.S. Census Bureau, which revisited its 2008 population estimate following a challenge by the county's Planning & Zoning Department.
Now the number of people living in the county is pegged at 2,478,745, rather than the 2,398,245 originally estimated by the federal census agency. ``We thought the numbers were way too low in the original estimate,'' said Bob Schwarzreich, supervisor of the county's demographics unit. ``We're glad the census bureau agreed.''
