Last updated 8/26/2021 at 10:32am
It might seem like a lot more these days, but recently released U.S. Census data show that Edmonds gained 3,144 residents in the last decade. According to the data, the City's 2020 population is 42,583, compared to 39,709 in 2010.
Housing and income numbers are from 2015 to 2019, so those statistics are certainly higher now, with housing costs continuing to skyrocket.
The county became more diverse over the past decade, with the percentage of white residents dropping 10.5 percentage points to 64% of the total population. Statewide, more than 36% of residents are now nonwhite, up from 27%.
