Hampton Roads Population Growth in 2011

imageJames City County led the way in Hampton Roads Population growth percentages in the latest annual population estimates released by The Weldon Cooper Center.

Hampton Roads total population grew by 13,427 in 2011, a rate of 0.81%. James City County growth was 2.78% almost double that of Chesapeake @ 1.66%.

Virginia’s population growth has outpaced the nation’s since the 2010 census.

Demographers at the University of Virginia’s Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service say the state’s population grew by 1.2 percent as of July 1, 2011. That puts the state’s total population at 8.1 million, according to the center’s estimates.

During the same period, the nation grew by less than 1 percent.

The region still grows more slowly than the state as a whole however.

Most of the Hampton Roads population growth occurred in the larger cities of the region, including Virginia Beach and Chesapeake, but there was also strong growth in Suffolk and James City County. Portsmouth also grew more quickly than the region, which represents a change from a two decade trend of declining population.
