Jackson, Michigan Population 2018

Jackson is a city located in the state of Mississippi. It is located in the counties of Hinds, Madison and Rankin, and it is the county seat of Hinds County, sharing power with the city of Raymond. It is also the capital of the state. Jackson has developed a reputation for its music, earning it the nickname “The City with Soul” because of the many musicians that were born there. The city’s population at the time of the last official census was 173,514. This number has since declined according to recent estimates, with this data showing that the population is now at 165,072. Jackson’s total area is 113.2 square miles, and it has a population density of 1,523 residents per square mile.

According to census data, over 79% of the population is black, over 18% is white, and Native Americans, Asians and multiracial residents each make up less than 1% of the total population. About 1.6% of the population is of Hispanic or Latino origin. Residents between the ages of 25 and 44 make up the largest age group, accounting for 29.1% of the total population.

During its earliest years, Jackson experienced significant population growth. At the time of the 1980 census, this number had risen to over 200,000. However, a period of decline followed, and each 10-year census following has posted a population loss. This loss has primarily been attributed to more people moving to suburban areas outside of the city limits. However, it has been predicted that this trend will change in the future and the population will grow once again as more people seek the attractions and amenities offered in the city.
