The 2010 Census For North Bay Village

The 2010 Census figures were released this week. So what does our city look like now?

Well, in 10 years, we've seen a 66% increase in population.

7,137 is the current population, 2,837 more people than 2000 when we had ~4300.

We are a younger city. 1,226 of our residents are under 19 and only 660 are over 65.

We are a city of renters - 63% of the population live in rented units.

2/3's of the population live on Treasure Island.

We are a majority Hispanic city - 58%

Our racial breakdown is White (Hispanic and non Hispanic) - 82%, African American - 5%, Asian 4%, Note: Other categories include mixed race or biracial. The census categories for race are as complex as our families.

The Elephant in the Room - The vacancy rates

26% of our housing units are vacant, compared to a statewide average of 17% and a countywide average of 12%.
