Population Growth among Children


The geographic portrait of the under-18 population is also quite compelling. Overall, the growth rate for children is less than the rate for the population as a whole, coming in at 7.0%. Thirty-eight counties (two shades of green on the map) showed a net loss of children over the decade. Hardeman County showed the greatest loss at 14%. Hardeman is also among the few counties that lost population overall. Growth in the two overall fastest-growing counties, Williamson and Rutherford, topped the state's under-18 population growth as well. The map shows the county-level growth rates of children in Tennessee.

Statewide growth: 7.0%
