Sublette County population tops 10K
by U.S. Census Bureau
March 8, 2011

On March 3, the U.S. Census Bureau released more detailed 2010 Census population totals and demographic characteristics to the governor and leadership of the state legislature in Wyoming. These data provide the first look at population counts for small areas and race, Hispanic origin, voting age and housing unit data released from the 2010 Census.

The official 2010 Census Redistricting Data Summary File can be used to redraw federal, state and local legislative districts. The census data are used by state officials to realign congressional and state legislative districts in their states, taking into account population shifts since the 2000 Census.

Sublette County grew 73 percent, to 10,247 people.

Data for Wyoming show that the five most populous incorporated places and their 2010 Census counts are Cheyenne, 59,466; Casper, 55,316; Laramie, 30,816; Gillette, 29,087; and Rock Springs, 23,036. Cheyenne grew by 12.2 percent since the 2000 Census. Casper grew by 11.4 percent, Laramie grew by 13.3 percent, Gillette grew by 48.1 percent, and Rock Springs grew by 23.1 percent.

The largest county is Laramie, with a population of 91,738. Its population grew by 12.4 percent since 2000. The other counties in the top five include Natrona, with a population of 75,450 (increase of 13.4 percent); Campbell, 46,133 (increase of 36.9 percent); Sweetwater, 43,806 (increase of 16.5 percent); and Fremont, 40,123 (increase of 12.1 percent).
