NC Demographics and Census 2020 Link

This discussion thread is pinned.
World Population Review 2020, North Carolina


The North Carolina population statistics make for very interesting reading as a whole, but how do the numbers stack up in recent years? North Carolina currently has a very healthy growth rate of 1.13%, which ranks 14th in the nation.

It's essential to look at the last set of confirmed figures which were declared at the time of the official US census of 2010. At the time, it was reported that there were 9,535,483 people living in the state, and that represented a significant rise of 18.5% from the numbers declared in 2000.

North Carolina Area and Population Density
Situated on the east coast of the United States, North Carolina is just the 28th largest state in the country in terms of area but it has a relatively high population density.

North Carolina may only rank in the lower middle half of the US in terms of size but it more than makes up for those statistics with its population density. The total surface area is 53,819 square miles (139,390 square kilometers) and there is an average of 196 people for every square mile. This makes North Carolina the 15th most densely populated state in the US.

1. North Carolina is the 9th largest by population. Bigger than Michigan, New Jersey & Virginia.

Not to mention Washington and Arizona. Just a few less people than Georgia.

More of NC's population is urban or suburban rather than down on the farm. A significant proportion of those recently moving there are retired who don't want the weather or the high cost of living found in Florida.
