County population data

For those of you who use population data, the Census Bureau has published its 2009 county estimates. Click here to access the tables.

Fun fact for Friday: Of South Dakota’s 66 counties, Jones County is the least populous. I thought 2009 might have been the year Jones County became the state’s only county with fewer than 1,000 residents. But its estimated 2009 population is 1,037, which is actually 22 people higher than 2008. The population at the 2000 Census was 1,193.

Just something to think about the next time you make that pit stop at the Triple H in Murdo...

Have a great weekend!
