Norwood joins challenge to July census estimates

The City of Norwood is joining twenty-two Hamilton County communities in a challenge to July census estimates. The leaders of these communities believe flawed methodology is used that results in undercounted population. U.S. Census figures affect a community’s ability to obtain grants and other kinds of funding.

On 6/28/07, we published this chart showing Norwood’s estimated declining population figures each year since the 2000 U.S. Census. According to the July, 2006 estimate, Norwood’s population was 19,532, down 2.2% from the 2005 estimate and down 9.9% from the 2000 Census.
