In The Loop – August 13, 2021
WE ARE CONNECTICUT – but who are we?
A lot has changed in the last 10 years, but then again nothing has really changed. The bottom line is that Connecticut’s population stayed stagnant with less than .9% growth since the 2010 census survey was conducted. CT sits at 3.6 million folks in the state. Statewide, Connecticut had a slight overall population gain of 31,847 residents, from about 3.57 million people in 2010.
Unfortunately CT led not only New England but the country with the lowest growth over the past 10 years. Followed by Michigan, Ohio, Wyoming and Pennsylvania.
CT won’t be losing a congressional seat but we certainly should expect to see some interesting redrawing of the district lines in various areas across the state in both the 5 US congressional districts as well as the 187 state general assembly districts…
