ALABAMA - HENRY COUNTY: Alabama's population continued to grow from 2020 - 2021 despite the COVID epidemic.
And surprisingly, Henry County was the third fastest growing county of the 67 counties in the State of Alabama.
despite the heavy toll of the COVID-19 pandemic, as several suburban counties saw substantial year-over-year gains and every county along the Tennessee border added people.
Overall, 32 of Alabama’s 67 counties added at least some people, according to population estimates released this spring from the U.S. Census Bureau. The leaders were a pair of usual suspects. Limestone County, the western half of the Huntsville metro, remained the fastest growing county in the state. Baldwin County, just across the bay from Mobile and home to Alabama’s beaches, stayed close on its heels.
