Treasure Coast sees substantial population growth

 

Treasure Coast, Fl (treasurecoast.com)  –  The Treasure Coast saw substantial population growth in the last decade, according to a batch of 2020 data released  last Thursday afternoon by the U.S. Census Bureau.

The growth is among other trends gleaned from the census, an official count of the U.S. population as of April 1, 2020, gathered from questionnaires. The data shows race, ethnicity, housing occupancy and population changes.

Total population grows in Treasure Coast counties

Martin County: Nearly 8.3% population increase, from nearly 147,000 to 158,000 residents. The county trailed Indian River and St. Lucie in the percentage of population growth over the last decade.

St. Lucie County: Over 18.5% population increase, from nearly 278,000 to 329,000 residents. The county outpaced Martin and Indian River counties.

Indian River County: Nearly 15.8% population increase, from   138,000 to 160,0000 residents. The population grew more than Martin County, but less than St. Lucie County.

The data helps businesses track population growth to figure out where to open shop, expand existing enterprises or recruit workers.

Data previously released in April by the U.S. Census Bureau is used for reapportionment, the process that determines how many representatives to the U.S. House are given to each state based on population.
