Population Growth

Population and other demographic data are generally measured at the level of city, county, or state. These jurisdictional boundaries are often of little meaning within a market area as defined by businesses.  Therefore these data are presented that reflect both the larger market area, as well as Lacey’s jurisdictional boundaries.

Both the market area that encompasses Lacey, as well as Lacey’s city limits and urban growth area boundaries, are growing rapidly. The 30-minute drive time market area population in 2016 is 426,289.  That figure is expected to grow to 453,421 by 2021.

Detailed data for the 30-minute drive time population follow:.
