March 20, 2008 01:16PM

Broward County has experienced a decrease in population for the first time in history, according to a U.S. census estimate. The report, released today and tracking numbers from July 2006 to July 2007, said that Broward lost 13,154 more people than it gained over that period. Experts say that the slowdown is most likely temporary, though property taxes and insurance make the area less desirable.
