Gov. Press Release: Labor Department Releases State, Borough and Place 2015 Population Estimates

JUNEAU, Alaska
Alaska’s population increased slightly – by 271 people – from July 2014 to July 2015, based on population estimates released today by the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development.  
Of Alaska’s 29 boroughs and census areas, 11 grew between 2014 and 2015. The largest population increases were in the Matanuska-Susitna Borough (1,801) and Kenai Peninsula Borough (348). The Municipality of Anchorage lost the most people over the period (-1,458). Among the state’s six economic regions, Anchorage/Mat-Su gained the most over the period (343) followed by Northern (277), and Gulf Coast (220). Southwest (-232), Interior (-172) and Southeast (-165) regions each had small losses.  
Net migration accounted for all of the region-wide losses, while natural increase – births minus deaths – was positive and fairly steady. Complete estimates for the state, boroughs/census areas, cities and census designated places are available on the department’s Research and Analysis Section website: LaborStats.Alaska.Gov Select “Population & Census,” then “Alaska Population Estimates.” Estimates for other areas – including cities and places, census tracts, school districts and Alaska Native Regional Corporations – are also available, plus estimates by age and sex for each borough, census area and place with a population of 1,000 or more.
