New Census data shows population shifts in PA

Pennsylvania’s population only grew 2.4 percent over the last decade even as the state’s population hit 13 million, new Census data shows.

“While this process has historically been conducted behind closed doors with little to no public input, 2021 is our year to flip the script and ensure that the voices of our communities, particularly those of Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, Pacific Islander, and other communities of color, are at the center of the conversation,” said Khalif Ali, executive director of Common Cause in Pennsylvania.
