Kansas City's population estimate revised

Recommended Posts

According to the American Community Survey in 2003 of the US Census Bureau. Instead of Kansas City losing 100 people from 2000-2003, these new estimates show 2 more digits plus a positive in population.

According to the the survey, Kansas City gained 11,000 people from 2000-2003, just 3 years. Also according to the survey, we gained 9,000 housing units in those years. From 2000-2004 there were almost 10,000 housing permits issued. That means they still left out the number of downtown lofts.

The survey shows Kansas City at a population of 452,496. A population not reached since the 1950s!

This information is shown on the American Fact Sheet off their website.

Thats great news for KC! I wonder though the city has expanded its reach since 1950 annexing new areas, the density would be the best measure on the population shift of the urban core of KC. It is still good news for the city, shows its robust and an excellent alternative to the cookie cutting suburbs. Adds to tax base and keeps the wheels turning for the city and thus the metroplex.
