Lufkin’s population grew 7.2 percent in the last decade to 35,067 last year, according to 2010 Census numbers released Thursday.

The population of Angelina County grew 8.3 percent to 86,771 in 2010, according to the data. The city of Diboll saw its population drop by 12.7 percent, to 4,776 people, while Hudson grew by 24.8 percent to 4,731 people. Huntington grew by 50 people, or 2.4 percent, to a population of 2,118, while Zavalla’s population is up 10.2 percent, to 713, and Burke saw its number of residents more than double, to 737.

Every 10 years, the U.S. Census Bureau conducts a nationwide population count by asking everyone who lives in America to mail in a completed questionnaire, and by following up with visits to the homes of people who did not return the form. Local officials in the past two years have tried to impress upon Angelina County residents the importance of returning the form, as the official population count affects the amount of funding and economic development opportunities the area receives.

City and County officials blame layoffs at Temple-Inland for much of Diboll’s population decline.
