The U.S. Census Bureau last week released July 1, 2009, population estimates for each of the nation’s counties.
It shows that Texas County has a head count of 24,563. The estimates are based on 2000 census data and updated by using administrative records to estimate components of population change – namely births, deaths and domestic and international migration.
The new estimates are not 2010 Census population counts. They are, however, the last estimates to use 2000 Census results as a base.
In 2000, Texas County’s population was estimated at 23,001.
