Jake keeps bragging that Salisbury is the fastest growing city in Maryland, which is probably true. What he is not telling us is that our population growth rate has been decreasing over the years. Our population growth rate from 2010-2018 is 7.5%; from the years 2000-2010 our population growth was 29%.
The population growth has slowed.
2000 Population - 21,500
2010 Population - 30,343
2018 Population is Approximately - 32,800
Between 2000-2010 we were adding an average of 884 people per year.
Between 2010-2018 we are pacing/adding 307 people per year.
*Since our populations median age is growing younger, we have to assume we are having more babies to add to our population. People are certainly not running here because of our growing economy and high paying jobs. But, who are the people that are moving here?
