We updated the total population fields in our Municipal and County Boundary layers based on Census field ‘P0010001’ in the recently released 2020 Decennial Census P.L. 94-171 Redistricting Data.
County Boundary – this file now contains total population from the 1900 to 2020 decennial censuses ‘POPxxxx’.
Municipal Boundary* – the 2020 Census total population per incorporated municipality is listed in the ‘population’ field.
* Special Note – Bethel Heights was consolidated into Springdale in 2021. Springdale’s population was recalculated by AGISO by combining Bethel Heights (3015) and Springdale (84161) in the original Census data.
