U.S. Census Says Shelby & San Augustine County Have Fewer Residents

Did you see a few less fellow county citizens in 2013 than you did in 2012? Well, according the U.S. Census Bureau, you probably did, as population numbers decreased slightly in Shelby and San Augustine Counties during that time. In that one year period, Shelby County’s population dropped by 185 residents to 25,792, while San Augustine County went down by 81, to a population of 8,769 in 2013. Despite the drop in residents in that 12 month period, Shelby County did show an increase from 2010 to 2013, with a growth of less than one percent, or 366. Meanwhile, San Augustine County lost 77 residents in those three years. Nacogdoches County’s population in 2013 was 65,330, an increase of just over one percent from 2010, but was down by 478 from 2012 figures. The census bureau did its annual population and housing estimates for Texas’ counties, which help determine the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives, and is also used to distribute billions of federal funds to local communities.
