McKenzie County leads the state in percent population growth
According to 2018 US Census estimates, McKenzie County has a population of 13,632. That represents a 7.1% population increase from 2017 estimates and a 113% increase from the 2010 census statistics. The next largest increase came from Williams County with 5.9%, and then they were followed by Stark County with a 2.2% increase.
Community and civic leaders throughout McKenzie County are already preparing for the 2020 US Census because even with the Census estimates showing robust growth, they still feel that the actual numbers in our community aren't being fully captured and are formulating plans to get as complete of a count as possible.
