Welcome to the City of Georgetown’s Census 2010 information page! In this site you will find out all about the United States Census count of 2010, from State and County data to the local population counts and the implications for Georgetown. We hope this site will be a valuable resource for you as you seek information about population, demographics, redistricting information and general statistics that the City makes available.
The key element of the Census count is determine how many people are living in a given location every ten years. The Census Bureau relies on residents to complete mailed forms before following up door-to-door, if necessary. The tallies are organized into smaller Census Block Groups and Census Tracts, which provide valuable data at a smaller scale. The final population counts determine new district boundaries for local, county, state and national representatives, which go through a redistricting process. For more information on redistricting that occurred after the 2010 Census in Georgetown, we’ve set up a page on this site, located here.
