Given that there is a regular stream of inquiry here about the Iowa City area, a small amount of simple demographic material that is easily digestible may provide some of the basic information that outsiders, or even current residents may find useful or eyeopening.
A brief overview is that the Iowa City MSA as defined by the Census bureau consists of Johnson & Washington Counties. Since the census of 2000, the 2 counties have added approximately 30,000 residents & the 2013 estimate places their population at 161,000 with Iowa City having just over 70,000 residents according to the 2012 estimate.
The University of Iowa student enrollment is generally holding steady to growing slowly and was passed last fall in size by Iowa State University. In recent years the student population share of the overall metro area population has been declining in percentage terms as other population segments of the area have grown considerably faster and the area has experienced in-migration as a major growth factor.
