Census says...

Everyone should get their calculators out and following along this weekend. I think it is important to flesh out what "world class" diversity looks like. That was one of the strengths made by the Residences of Lake Osborne in their presentation last Tuesday.

According to the 2010 Census, the entire City of Lake Worth had a population of 34,910, of which 19.8% were Black/African American and 39.6% were of Hispanic/Latino origin, white and non-white.

In the area bounded by Lake Osborne on the west, I-95 to the east, 6th Avenue South and the southern city limits, there are a total of 1,299 people, of which 1,116 (85.9%) are white and 121 (9.3%) are Black/African American. Other groups make up the balance.

We will have more information later as we research the numbers from the census tract and block data.
