The 2020 Census has released its final results, showing how communities across Washington are divvying up the state's massive population boost.
"We are excited to reach this milestone of delivering the first detailed statistics from the 2020 Census," said acting Census Bureau Director Ron Jarmin. "We appreciate the public's patience as Census Bureau staff worked diligently to process these data and ensure it meets our quality standards."
According to the data, from 2010 to 2020, Washington's population grew by 980,741 people — about 14.6 percent — to 7,705,281 residents. Washington grew at almost twice the rate of the rest of the nation: the U.S. on the whole saw a 7.4 percent population growth.
