Census Data Leaves Pima County Under 1 Million

Official statistics from the US Census Bureau show Pima County having a population just shy of the 1 million mark. The final tabulation shows 980,263 residents. It was originally thought that the county had surpassed that threshold around 2006, but perhaps a reduction in residents occured with the scarcity of some local jobs, or there is a strong feeling that the lack of minority/illegal immigrant participation in the Census may not be truly reflecting the current count. This total does reflect a significant 16.2% increase in Pima County population over the 2000 Census.

Tucson itself saw a 6.9% increase, totaling 33,000 people, to put the current population figure at 520,116. Here are some population figures for local towns with increased percentage and rank in Arizona:

20. Oro Valley – 41,011 (+38.1%)

18. Sierra Vista – 43,888 (+16.2%)

17. Casa Grande – 48,517 (+92.6%)

2. Tucson – 520,116 (+6.9%)
