American FactFinder - Results *

Data released today by the census bureau shows the estimate for July 1 2013 to be 30,666. This is not a loss from last year's estimate though, given that they've now adjusted last year's estimate to be 30,273 (last year's data release showed 31,000 although that number is nowhere to be seen).

All in all, this year's data is really uninteresting.

They're now estimating that the population of Mon County is 102,274. That's an increase of 1,747 over the previous year. Impressive growth!

I think they have different estimates from different people in their organization. I saw one "estimate" of 32,000 permanent residents for 2014, and 31,000 figure you mentioned for 2013, and now this. Might it be that they were counting some people locating in developments located just outside of the city limits as though they were living in the city?

Yes, those of us living here can't miss the developments taking place all around us. I have a hunch much of this is taking place due to Ruby Memorial growth as well as growth in private research endeavors. I know I just got a new PhD research neighbor who recently started working for Protea.

With the bizarre shape of Morgantown's city limits, I don't think that number will change much unless there is a big residential building placed downtown. Nothing to worry about since there are multiple developments and townhomes being build outside its limits.
