The Planning Division of the Planning & Development Department is responsible for preparing estimates of the Town’s year-end population to be used in various planning efforts. The year-end numbers for 2022 have been collected and shared by the division. Recent research and analysis indicate the Town’s population as of Dec. 31, 2022, was 34,828. Based on these year-end estimates, the population of Erie has increased 2,176 people or approximately 6.7% since the end of 2021 (end-of-year population estimate of 32,652 in 2021).
This estimate is derived from several variables including:
- Number of dwelling units
- Vacancy rate
- Average household size for single-family and multi-family dwellings
- Population living in group quarters
