City Population Now Five Figures

For the first time ever, the City’s population exceeds 10,000.  The Washington State Office of Financial Management (OFM) estimates the City of Snohomish population on April 1, 2017 was 10,010.  This is an increase of 385 people representing a 4% growth rate over the past year.

The City’s growth rate exceeds both the State’s 1.76% rate and the County’s 2.14% rate.  The City of Everett added 1,500 people making it tenth in population growth among Washington’s incorporated cities.

OFM is required by State rules to annually determine the April 1 population of the State, its counties, and their cities.  The estimates are used for State program administration and allocation of State revenues.

In making its estimates OFM uses new building permit information provided by the City.  The estimates build on the 2010 Census.  Based on the information provided by the City, OFM calculates how many new dwelling units have been built in the City since the last estimate then applies an “occupancy rate” and “persons per household” size to arrive at a population estimate.  Since 2010 OFM estimates the City has added 252 additional dwelling units.  Of those, 176 are single-family houses with most of the other units in larger multi-family structures.
