The symbols on this map show population change in the MARC region over the last decade.
To create the map, we subtracted 2000 Census population numbers from the recently released 2010 Census totals, and used blue bubbles to represent population increases and red bubbles for decreases. The larger the bubble, the larger the increase or decrease.
The results show a continuation of the patterns we’ve seen over the last several decades – a loss of population in the core, and growth in population at increasing distances from the core. A notable exception in the last 10 years is an increase in population in downtown Kansas City, Mo.
