Census shows which counties are growing, shrinking

Lucas County losing population as Wood, Hancock, Fulton grow

Compared with 2010, when the population was estimated at 80,003, the population has fallen 2.7 percent.

Numerous now-former Schoharie County residents moved out shortly after the devastating 2011 floods, but the county was losing population before the floods and is still losing it, six years later.

Between 2010 and 2016, we grew by an average of 1.57 percent each year.

"This is not the first time we've seen a population decline in NY state", said Peter Borsella, a demographer with the Census Bureau.

Jan Vink, an extension associate with Cornell University's Program on Applied Demographics, called domestic migration "one of the main drivers" of New York's recent population decline. Defiance, Henry, Ottawa, Sandusky, and Williams counties all had lower population estimates.

Harris County remains the nation's third-largest county with 4.6 million people, closely followed by Maricopa County in fourth place with 4.2 million people. Much of the county increase was attributed to the influx of refugees to Buffalo, which is considered a refugee resettlement city. "In the last couple of years, that global migration has remained stable but ... people are moving out of the area and elsewhere in the country".

It should worry policymakers in Chicago and Cook County that out-migration and population loss were already so strong in the July 2015 - July 2016 timeframe.

Concerning the reported decrease in the county's population, San Juan County CEO Kim Carpenter said it's important to examine other sources of information to get a full assessment of the local situation.

Likewise, King County may be the state's population powerhouse - having gained almost 26,000 residents between 2015 and 2016 - but its growth rate is slower than the counties surrounding it. King County grew by 1.69 percent, while Pierce, Thurston and Snohomish counties all grew by more than 2 percent during that one-year period.

Supreme Court pick Gorsuch would have 'no difficulty' ruling against Trump
Graham asked if Gorsuch had met Trump before their interview, and Gorsuch clarified the two had not met in person until that day. Confirmation hearings will continue through Thursday , with a committee vote expected by April 3.

While industry and investment have grown in Sandusky County, Schwochow said a glut of open jobs is hurting the county's population figures. The Buffalo metro area still ranks among the top 50 metropolitan areas nationwide - barely.

International Migration: Our net international migration rate, at 2.3 per 1,000, is 21st in the nation.

In total, we gained an estimated 8,624 people over that one-year period. "Conoco Phillips selling off their assets is also great news because they're not just walking away from it - whoever they sell it to will hopefully come in and expand the company". "That was the main contributor to their population gain". However, Elgin's population growth is attributable to an unusually high birth rate and a solid gain of worldwide immigrants. The data released today goes down only to the county level.

7,185: Number of babies born in Lancaster County in 2016.

Even while it was experiencing the largest net population loss of any county in the country, Cook Count was seeing an influx of migrants from foreign countries and more births than deaths.

Clark County could theoretically have half a million residents in 2020. With Wayne's precipitous drop, it's going to be interesting to see how well Detroit, the largest city in Wayne County, fared. The St. Joseph metropolitan area includes Buchanan, Andrew and DeKalb counties in Missouri and Doniphan County, Kansas. "They beat out Harris County, which had been the fastest-growing county by numeric change for several years", Bolender said. Montgomery County lost 328 people, shrinking to 531,239.

He said the "four corners" area in southeast Kent County - the city of Kentwood and townships of Cascade, Gaines and Caledonia - is particularly booming.

"Our issue countywide is lack of jobs", said Cobleskill Mayor Linda Holmes.
