Virginia’s population growth has slowed, but is still ahead of the national rate, in figures released this morning by UVA’s Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service. The numbers are crucial for government planning and revenue sharing.
Since the 2010 Census, Virginia grew by 5.1percent, to an estimated 8.4 million
“The Richmond metro area has grown about the same rate as the Commonwealth overall…”
Hamilton Lombard is the Weldon Cooper researcher who prepared the report.
