First of VT Census Data Explained

Source: Housing Matters Blog, Dec. 22, 2010 The 2010 Census has released its first set of data. According to the 2010 Census data, Vermont’s total population is 625,741. Vermont’s population grew 2.8% between 2000 and 2010, that’s down from 8.2% the previous decade. According to Chip Sawyer from the Center of Rural Studies (CRS) at the University of Vermont; these numbers are not much of a surprise, still the data is significant because it continues a trend of a slowing growth rate for the state. Only six states grew more slowly than Vermont between 2000 and 2010 and Vermont is still the second smallest state in the country behind Wyoming. Vermont will still retain its one seat in the U.S. Congress. County and town population numbers will be released in early 2011 by the Census. Chip and CRS are partners with VHFA in the Vermont Housing Data Web site. Chip appeared on TV and Radio explaining these details, read more:
