Population totals by county and cities, including data on race and ethnicity, to be posted around noon.
The U.S. Census Bureau is releasing 2010 census details for New Mexico today, including summaries of population totals by county and cities, as well as data on race and ethnicity, according to The Associated Press.
The Census Bureau reported in December that New Mexico’s population grew to more than 2 million over the past decade, but the growth rate was one of the slowest in the state’s history, the AP said.
From 1990 to 2000, New Mexico saw a 20.1 percent population increase, but increased only 13.2 percent over the 2000 count, according to the AP. The state’s population grew 16.3 percent from 1980 to 1990 and 28.2 percent from 1970 to 1980, the AP said.
According to the PR Newswire, the Census Bureau sent 2010 data to the governor and to legislative leaders on Monday and will issue a news release around noon MDT today with five custom tables of data for the state.
Also at that time, PR Newswire said, the full set of data — including summaries of population totals, as well as data on race, Hispanic origin and voting age for multiple geographies within the state, including census blocks, tracts, voting districts, cities, counties and school districts, will be posted on the Census Bureau’s website and within 24 hours of release at the Census Bureau’s new American FactFinder site at http://factfinder2.census.gov.
