With the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2020 population estimates released, the numbers show Missouri grew 0.2% over the past year, adding 11,000 net new residents. This growth rate corresponds to half of the national growth rate and corresponds to that of other countries in the Midwest and neighboring countries. But Missouri’s growth was uneven across the state.
The northwest region of Missouri has lost nearly 5% of its population since 2020 due to net inland emigration and negligible natural increase. Andrew County was the only county in the region that increased in population from 2010 to 2020. DeKalb, Holt, Sullivan, and Atchison counties lost significant residents during this period.
In total, 62 of Missouri’s 115 counties lost population. Most of these counties were in north and southeast Missouri. Springfield and Columbia were the fastest growing statistical areas in Missouri at 0.8% and 0.7%, respectively. Kansas City grew 0.5%. Growth in St. Louis was flat. Jefferson City and St. Joseph both lost population. Jefferson City lost 0.5%. St. Joseph lost 0.6%.
Areas that appear to be growing in the state include the Ozark region, Southwest Missouri, the suburbs of St. Louis, and West Central Missouri.
