Population Change Since the Last Census

Last week, the Albany Business Review had an article about population loss in New York State: "New Census data show NY's population decline mostly coming from downstate." Between 2020 and 2023, the population of New York State dropped by 631,104. The chart below, taken from the article, shows the population change since the 2020 Census in the counties of the Capital Region. According this information, Columbia County's population decreased by 1,090 between 2020 and 2023.

  1. Yet the school budget keeps increasing. At this pace, there will be 100 students with a $100M annual budget. I'd rather we just give each child a trust fund. They'd end up better.
