Columbus Demographics

Last Update: 4/2/2018

While I have included a lot of information here, I’m more than willing to add any stats someone may be interested in seeing. This is just the tip of the iceberg, so if you don’t see it here, don’t hesitate to make a request and I’ll see what I can do to get it up here.


Columbus City

The high growth of square miles from the 1950s through the 1970s was due almost entirely to an aggressive annexation policy by the then-mayor. Annexation has been more or less on the decline since then.
