State Senator Manar: Illinois Population Growing, So is Sangamon County


Critics have complained for years that Illinois is becoming a less desirable place to live… and that the state is losing population and jobs.

 

But a local lawmaker says the numbers suggest otherwise.

 

State Senator Andy Manar says U.S. Census data shows the state’s population grew steadily from 2000 to 2010… and a supplemental census in 2012 shows that trend is continuing.

 

The data cited by Manar also shows population growth in Sangamon County… now up to a population just under 200,000 people.
