Special 2007 Census - Champaign

Description: The City of Champaign reported the final special census results on Thursday, April 5th, 2007:

The U.S. Census Bureau has released the official figures for the Special Census conducted in January and February, 2007.

The Census Bureau has certified that the City‘s population has grown by 7,702 since the 2000 regular census. This is slightly higher than the unofficial figure of 7,680 provided by the Census Bureau when it completed fieldwork last month. The official figure brings the City‘s population to 75,254, since the City‘s official population was 67,959 prior to the special census. (In 2002, the Census Bureau made a technical correction that increased the City‘s population from 67,518 to 67,959.) The City gained 3,255 households, so the newly annexed and newly developed areas have about 2.4 residents per household.

Previous to these official results, the News-Gazette ran an article on March 15th, 2007 entitled Champaign‘s Special Census: Unofficial results show an increase of 7,680 residents.

The article stated that a recently completed special census shows that Champaign‘s population has increased by an estimated 7,680 residents. If those results are certified by the U.S. Census Bureau, it will mean Champaign‘s population is now 75,198.

The census was conducted by the US Census Bureau between January 19th and February 12th, 2007.
