2018 County Population Estimates




Yesterday morning, the Census released the most recent population figures for counties, Metropolitan Statistical Areas and Consolidated Statistical Areas, albeit a full month later than they are normally released. The estimates cover the year from July 1, 2017 to July 1, 2018. For Part 1, we are going to take a look at counties.

Here are Ohio’s 88 counties and their populations for Census 2010, July 1, 2017 and July 1, 2018. The counties highlighted by color are as follows:
Akron Metro Counties
Canton Metro Counties
Cincinnati Metro Counties (Ohio Only)
Cleveland Metro Counties
Columbus Metro Counties
Dayton Metro Counties
Toledo Metro Counties
Youngstown Metro Counties
Black are non-metro counties.

Domestic migration is where the growth rate of Franklin County was most affected in the estimates. In 2016-2017, domestic migration was estimated to be nearly 6,000, but in 2017-2018, at -213. There is no real explanation for this, and is entirely unrealistic. Franklin County has been gradually improving its domestic migration numbers for the last 20 or so years, and has been positive for the better part of a decade, with 2016-2017 being the highest. There is no logical reason why domestic migration would suddenly collapse from the highest in decades to a negative, especially in light over overall historically high growth rates and its increasing attraction to the rest of the country. I suspect this is merely a year that the Census used to adjust where they think overall domestic migration is for the decade and not any true representation of actual domestic migration. There is little doubt that domestic migration was positive last year. In any event, this is why the overall county growth was off by a good 3K-5K from all other years this decade.

2017 County/Metro Population Estimates Part 2




In part 2, I am going to examine metro areas, not only in Ohio, but also Columbus’ peer group that includes Midwest and national metro areas. Midwest peers (outside Ohio) used would be any metro with a population greater than 500,000. National peers would be metros that either started or ended the period 2010-2017 with a population between 1.5-2.5 Million.

As with counties, I am going to start this look with a comparison of overall population.

So there you have it for counties.  Part 2 on Metro and CSAs will be coming soon!




Election 2016

I’m not going to get into any debate on the candidates themselves or what I personally thought/think of them. That’s not the point of this post, and frankly, there’s already plenty of opinions all over the internet on this.

First, here is a map of total Democratic votes within Ohio’s counties.

As is typical, Democratic votes were most concentrated in counties with large cities.

Here are the metro areas that provided the most Democratic votes.

1. Cleveland: 561,368
2. Columbus: 450,146
3. Cincinnati: 339,159
4. Akron: 166,653
5. Dayton: 164,079
6. Toledo: 152,505
7. Youngstown: 100,395

And the top 10 counties with the most Democratic votes.
1. Cuyahoga: 398,271
2. Franklin: 351,198
3. Hamilton: 215,719
4. Summit: 134,256
5. Montgomery: 122,016
6. Lucas: 110,833
7. Stark: 68,146
8. Lorain: 66,949
9. Butler: 58,642
10. Mahoning: 57,381

Here is how Democratic votes changed by county between 2012 and 2016.

As you can see, only a handful of counties saw Democratic votes increase in 2016 over 2012, Franklin County being one of them. Some of the biggest losses were in traditionally blue areas like Northeast Ohio.

And the map for total Republican votes.

Republican votes by metro area.
1. Cincinnati: 440,375
2. Columbus: 429,930
3. Cleveland: 400,321
4. Dayton: 210,807
5. Akron: 151,997
6. Toledo: 134,558
7. Youngstown: 102,640

Top 10 counties for Republican votes.
1. Franklin: 199,331
2. Cuyahoga: 184,211
3. Hamilton: 173,665
4. Montgomery: 123,909
5. Summit: 112,026
6. Butler: 106,976
7. Stark: 98,388
8. Warren: 77,643
9. Lucas: 75,698
10. Clermont: 67,518

And here is the change of Republican votes in 2016 vs. 2012.

Most of Ohio’s counties saw increased Republican turnout, though again, Franklin County bucked the trend and actually saw declines.

Finally, a map of the net % change for each county and whether it trended more Republican or more Democratic vs. the net of the 2012 election.

Almost all counties saw a net decrease of Democratic votes/increase in Republican votes. Only 3 counties of 88- Franklin, Delaware and Hamilton- trended more Democratic in 2016 over 2012. All the other 85 trended Republican.
