DEMOGRAPHICS | POPULATION PROJECTIONS Official census data shows that over the decade, between 2000 and 2010, the city’s population increased by nearly 50 percent. Between the time the two most recent census surveys were taken, an average of nearly 900 new residents a month chose to call Henderson home. Even though the percentage of growth has varied because of the growing population base, the actual number of new residents per year during that period had been relatively stable, slowing only as signs of an economic 14 downturn were beginning to manifest. Today, Henderson continues to attract new residents and enjoys positive growth even though that rate has slowed significantly. The Population Projections Table below are trends and projections for upcoming census and mid-census year data compiled by the City of Henderson Community Development Department, and may offer a more timely representation of current population trends.
