City releases demographic dashboard

Tuesday, June 1, 2021 by Elizabeth Pagano

Those who can’t wait until September to get a handle on Austin’s changing demographics can amble over to the city’s latest dashboard, which lays out the city’s 2020 population estimates. The 2020 population estimates are based on the 2010 U.S. Census counts, and while it’s not the official count, it provides a preview of what we might expect to see in September. The curious can head over now, but the main takeaways touted by a press release explain that Austin is just under the 1 million mark, though estimates anticipate a strong census participation for the area. And, to the surprise of no one, the Austin metro area was the fastest-growing area in the country for the 10th consecutive year.
