The U.S. Census Bureau released 2023 estimates of the total population at the municipal level.

The Pennsylvania State Data Center published a brief and an interactive map with the new data. To view the Data Center’s brief, visit: https://pasdc.hbg.psu.edu/Data/Research-Briefs.

You are encouraged to review the actual number, in addition to the percentage increase, when comparing your data. If a 2.5% increase equates to 3 people, is it really a significant shift? 206 municipalities saw their population increase by more than 2% and 74 of these saw their population increase by more than 5%. 670 municipalities saw their population decrease by more than 2% with 19 of these seeing their population decrease by more than 5%. The remaining 1,696 municipalities saw a 2% or less change in their population. If your township’s estimated change in population does not make sense, please let us know by emailing Holly Fishel at hfishel@psats.org.
