The 2020 Census numbers have been released, and we’re looking at data we can begin to use. I’m hoping to get the data at a school district level later on – but for now, we have county level data, CCD level data, and Census tract level data.
First – Lincoln County’s population dropped by a tenth of a percent. Second, the population in the Libby CCD dropped by 1.2% (now 9,772), population in the Troy CCD dropped by 3.9% now 3,435), and population in the Eureka CCD increased by 4.0% (now 6,470). North County is now officially 89 residents less than a third of the county’s population. 3,435 of the people represented by the Troy Commissioner reside in the Troy CCD, while 3,124 reside in the Libby CCD. This is a trend worth watching.
Housing data is available at the county level – and it may give us some insight on rentals in the area. Housing units in Lincoln County decreased by 4.0% – occupied housing units increased by 0.5%, and unoccupied housing units decreased by 19.6%.
In County 57 – the Eureka CCD – housing unit numbers are:
|2020 #||2020 %||2010 #||2010 %||Change|
|Total Housing Units||3,716||3,771||-1.5%|
All these statistics are in comparison with the 2010 Census.
It’s going to be fun as future releases will show even more usable data.
