It seems like I’ve seen two different population numbers for Lawrence lately. One was about 90,000 and another was more than 100,000. What’s the difference?
It sounds like you saw one population estimate for Lawrence and another for Douglas County. Lawrence has a population of 92,048, according to the 2009 Census estimate. Douglas County as a population of 116,383, according to the 2009 Census estimate. The city of Lawrence produces its own population estimate that is separate from the Census. The city estimated Lawrence’s population in 2009 at 91,464.
