US Census: Snapshot of Population Changes Around Huntington

The US Census began releasing data last week from its 2020 survey of Americans, showing a decline in the White population, and an increase in the percentage of Asian and Hispanic residents.

HuntingtonNow.com has checked addresses  in a variety of Census tracts, using  well-known locations, such as libraries, schools or government buildings, to highlight a variety of areas of town. One Census tract in any given ZIP Code does not necessarily completely reflect changes across that hamlet or section of Huntington but does provide a sampling of demographic developments happening in the community.

Change is coming to all parts of Huntington.

Here’s what we found, using the data-driven map from the Washington Post.
