WEST CHESTER (June 5, 2018) –  State Senator Andy Dinniman announced today that West Chester has experienced the largest numeric gains of any borough in Pennsylvania, according to recent Census Data.

West Chester ranked first of Pennsylvania’s 964 boroughs in increasing numeric population by 1,601 (8.7 percent) from an estimated 18,459 in July 2010 to 20,060 in July 2017, according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s recently released 2017 Sub-County Population Estimates.

Meanwhile, more than 75 percent of boroughs in Pennsylvania have lost population since 2010.

“West Chester has been called ‘the Perfect Town’ and the latest Census data confirms that people continue to flock here to live, work, play, and raise their families,” Dinniman said. “With an in-demand university, top-notch schools, great parks, growing career opportunities, and a vibrant downtown with seemingly endless dining, shopping, art, and entertainment opportunities, it’s not hard to see why.

“I want to thank all the members of the business community, borough leaders, volunteers, and the staff of the West Chester Business Improvement District for their ongoing work and commitment to keep the historic borough growing strong. And I look forward to continuing to work together to manage this growth, so West Chester can and will continue to be ‘the Perfect Town’ for all to enjoy for decades to come,” he added.
