Lansing Demographics


Recommended Posts

For the first time since maybe the 80's or early 90's, Lansing is estimated to have grown.  Anecdotally, if you've been on the ground, you feel it, too.  Let's see where this goes in 2020.

Lansing's population increases for second straight year


LANSING – The City of Lansing's population increased by 338 residents to 114,620 last year, according to estimated U.S. Census figures released Thursday.


The Census calculates estimates as of July 1 of each year and reported Lansing's population at 114,282 in 2013 and 114,250 in 2012.


2014 - 114,620

2013 - 114,282

2012 - 114,250

2011 - 114,270

2010 - 114,323



Looks like we may have finally turned a corner, and with all of the housing coming online, next year, I wouldn't be surprised to see number revised higher next spring.

Looks like the city is very close to gaining back all of the population it lost between the 2000 and 2010 censuses:


Census: Lansing's population grows for eighth straight year, hits highest point since 2005


Lansing saw its largest annual gains from 2015 to 2016 and 2016 to 2017. Lansing's population growth looked like this:

  • 2018 - 118,427
  • 2017 - 117,882
  • 2016 - 116,635
  • 2015 - 115,358
  • 2014 - 115,102
  • 2013 - 114,736
  • 2012 - 114,653
  • 2011- 114,533
  • 2010 - 114,309

My gut is telling me that the actual count will be over whatever the 2020 number ends up.
