Newark Boosts Population, Rises in City Ranks


The 2020 U.S. Census numbers have been published now.

As expected, Newark has risen on the list of Ohio's most populated cities from 20th in 2010 to 18th with 2020 Census results.

Newark remains the second largest city in growing Central Ohio.  

Here's the updated 2020 Census rankings as compared to 2010.

With a 5% population gain, Newark has a 49,934 population.  That's quite an achievement.  World Population Review estimates have tended to show Newark having crossed the 50,000 population threshold. 

Some cities in the bottom quarter rank of Top 20 cities surprised the estimators in a good way.  Cuyahoga Falls, Middletown, and Cuyahoga Falls were seeing estimates with populations falling under 50,000 but found Census numbers holding them above that population number.

The last few years have aided Ohio's largest cities in population.  Overall, cities in the Top 20 did better than the earlier trends showed.  Ten of the 20 cities saw population gains versus 2010.  Estimates in 2016 had as few as three in that category.

Congratulations, Newark Mayor Jeff Hall on the news front.
