New Census numbers for Lubbock & all of Texas

By James Clark - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Numbers released Thursday afternoon by the U.S. Census Bureau show the City of Lubbock's 2010 population was 229,573.  It's an increase of 30,009 people as compared to 2000.  Or, put it in another way, the city's population grew 15% over the course of 10 years. 

Hispanics in Lubbock, regardless of race, are now 32% of the Hub City.  Whites are 76%, but White non-Hispanics are approximately 44% of the city's population.  Lubbock's Black community is just more than 8.5% of city's total.

Meanwhile, results for Texas as a whole show that Hispanics now make up 38 percent of the total population, and they are the fastest growing group in Texas.   Texas' Anglo population has now dropped to 45.3 percent and Blacks now make up 11.5 percent of all Texans.  Texas' total population is 25,145,561 according to the newest Census.

Census numbers translate into changes in political power.  Lubbock, like Texas, will have to undergo a redistricting process based upon the new numbers.
