Anna Maria, Holmes Beach see drop in population

The U.S. Census Bureau’s 2007 population estimates show slight drops in Anna Maria and Holmes Beach - ever so slight drops.

Bradenton Beach saw a slight increase in population - ever so slight.

The percentage increase in Bradenton Beach from July 1, 2006, to July 1, 2007, was .2 percent, representing an increase from 1,543 people in 2006 to 1,546 people in 2007.

Bradenton Beach, Palmetto and unincorporated Manatee County showed population increases in the new Census estimates. Other jurisdictions in Manatee County showed declines.

The percentage decline in Anna Maria from July 1, 2006, to July 1, 2007 was .8 percent, representing a decline from 1,847 people to 1,833.

The percentage decline in Holmes Beach was .5 percent, from 5,053 in 2006 to 5,028 in 2007.

Bradenton’s population declined .2 percent and Longboat Key’s declined .7 percent.

Palmetto’s population increased 2.2 percent and unincorporated Manatee County’s population went up 1.2 percent.

Overall, the county saw an increase in population of .9 percent, from 312,197 to 315,108 people.

From a national view, New Orleans, hard-hit by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, was the fastest-growing city in the United States between July 2006 and July 2007. The city’s population rose 13.8 percent.

Houston led the nation’s cities in numerical increases in population, adding 38,932 residents from July 2006 to July 2007.

Three other Texas cities - McKinney, Denton and Killeen - made the list of top fastest-growing cities, along with North Las Vegas, Nev., Cary, N.C., Port St. Lucie, Fla., Gilbert, Ariz., and Clarksville, Tenn.

New York City remains the nation’s most populous city, with 8.3 million residents. Los Angeles ranked second with 3.8 million residents and Chicago ranked third, with 2.8 million residents.

To calculate population estimates, the Census Bureau uses housing unit estimates such as building permits, mobile home shipments and estimates of housing loss.

The bureau’s next major census count will take place in 2010. Census questionnaires will be mailed or delivered to every household in the United States in March 2010. By Dec. 31, 2010, the bureau must submit population totals to the president.
