Harrisonburg Will Grow 43% in Population Over a 20-Year Period

We’re big fans of interesting statistics and cool interactive web tools. Put those two together and of course we have to share it! We came across this interactive mapping tool that shows what any metro area’s population (and other stats) will be like by the year 2030. According to it, Harrisonburg will experience a population growth of 42.77% between 2010 and 2030. That’s 84,805 more people in just 20 years.

    Lisa,

    Since the baseline is from 2010, what info is out there to say if, five years into this, is Harrisonburg population on track with this projection? Thanks!

      Great question, John!

      I looked on the map tool for dates 2010 – 2020 (smallest date range possible) and it says Harrisonburg will experience a population increase of 18.21%, or 36,113 people. I’m not positive on what they are using as “Harrisonburg area,” but I do know that Harrisonburg and Rockingham County combined had a population of 128,372 in 2012 and 125,228 in 2010. In a 2-year time span, that is a change of 2.5%.

      Hope that helps!
