Census News Shows Clay County Growth

A recent update of Greater Kansas City’s 14-county census data shows Clay County doesn’t lead any category – but it’s easily one of the most populated areas with the highest percentage of growth.

The region’s counties with the highest percentage of growth are less-populated areas like Cass County in Missouri or Miami in Kansas. That shouldn’t be surprising. These smaller counties need only a small total number of new residents to achieve eye-catching growth increases. Cass County chalked up a 1.25% growth rate with 1,375 new residents, for a total population of 111,732. In Kansas, Miami County recorded a 1.52% jump, reaching a population of 35,320. 

In overall terms Clay County scored bigger real-world growth, adding nearly 3,000 new residents for a population of 259,772 and a 1.11% growth rate. Even neighboring Platte County, with a 1.24% increase to 111,940, did so with a total population less than half of Clay County’s.

Besides these notes, the Census Bureau’s recent estimates show Kansas City with a healthy trajectory. The region’s growth is the largest metro expansion in both Kansas and Missouri, leading even St. Louis, which fell by 3,246 to 2,796,999. The closest to this area were Springfield, Wichita and Columbia.
