Census: Midway's official population is 1,641

Midway had only 21 more people on April 1, 2010 than it did 10 years earlier, according to official figures released today by the U.S. Census Bureau.

The city's 2010 census population is 1,641. In 2000, it was 1,620. The new population figure is contrary to an estimate made by the Census Bureau's American Community Survey, an ongoing national poll, in 2005-09. That survey estimated Midway's population at 2,019. However, the bureau's official population estimate of the city last year was only 1,627.

The census count in Versailles was 8,568, up 9 percent from 7,863. Woodford County's population was 24,939, up 6.2 percent from the 2000 figure of 23.486. Woodford's percentage gain was virtually the same as the state's, 6.1 percent, and lagged far behind Scott (up 40.7 percent, to 47,173) and Jessamine (up 22.6 percent, to 48,586). Fayette rose 11.6 percent, to 295,803, and Anderson rose 10.7 percent, to 21,421. Franklin County gained only 2.1 percent, to 49,285, and Mercer gained just 1.2 percent, to 21,331.
