<quoted text>I am thinking, you are not listening ! yes the upper and middle class are having less children.....the price of things it takes now days to raise children are just too high to have big families like before...on the other hand, these young teen girls who are getting pregnant, have no worries......we give the wic, stamps, medial card, I could go on and on ....and who do you think pays for all those things?? we do the upper and middle class, so you see we have less money to spend on our own families because the government is taking so much out to support those who are flat lazy and irresponsible so support themselves. think about it and add it up , it will come out just like I said

too many people with children and not together with both parents. the family unit is almost a word that doesnot even exist anymore. to many families drawing checks and medical exspenses paid for by the productive society. lawsuits are another problem. people have a back ache and they sue thier employer. fraudulent. no other way to look at it.

Your statistics might be correct, but that is not the reason for such a dramatic decline in the population in Eunice. There weren't nor are there currently enough upper and upper middle class families in Eunice to cause such a large drop in the population numbers.

The largest drop in Eunice's population over the last 10 years is caused by the number of people moving outside the city limits. While I have no hard numbers to back this up, there have been a considerable number of homes built in the last decade near but not in the city. This is further evidenced by the growth in population in Acadia Parish. While the population in the actual city limits has fallen, I would venture to say that the population in and around Eunice has either remained the same or possibly grown slightly.
