Population of Towns, 1800-2010

POPULATION OF TOWNS OF CONNECTICUT FROM 1800 - 2010

    Compiled from the official returns. The census of 1790 was somewhat imperfect. Of New London county it stated: "The return from this county is so blended that the number in each town cannot be ascertained. The aggregate is 33,000." For the Litchfield County towns not returned, Hartland being at that time included, the aggregate population is estimated at 20,342. Greenwich and Stamford were included with Norwalk.
    NOTE: The 1756 census figures are available in the 1949 and previous editions of the State Manual; 1774 census in the 1950 through 1960 Manuals; 1782 census in the 1960 through 1970 Manuals; 1790 census in the 1980 and previous editions. Census figures for the periods between the following years may be found in previous editions.
