Telephone has issued revised population estimates which indicate whopping increases in growth of communities in Fernie, Sparwood and district, but showing a slightly lower count than when the surveys first were published two years ago. The estimates are based on B.C. Tel's telephone needs over the next five years and in a few cases, over the next 20 years. Jim McGimpsey, area telephone manager, noted the telephone needs are based on surveys being done on a continuous basis by a staff of B.C. Telephone specialists. The figures apply to need for residential phones, but can be related to population. The company estimates that for every resident phone there will be 3.8 people. This figure is applied to the number of phones forecast and arrive at a population forecast. The survey also gave figures for the East Kootenay as a whole, indicating that by 1977, the East Kootenay, stretching right up to Golden, will have a population of 75,897, jumping more than 20,000 in the next six years. The East Kootenay predictions listed total population in 1972 at 53,074 to 75,897 in 1977. It is difficult to compare the figures for this area with previous ones given by the telephone company, since not the same geographical locations were used in breaking down the community trends.
