Census: St. Louis Population down 8 Percent

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The city of St. Louis lost nearly 29,000 people during the past decade, a decline of about 8 percent of its population.

Census figures obtained Thursday by The Associated Press show St. Louis had a population of a little more than 319,000 in 2010. The Census Bureau was to formally release the figures later Thursday.

The census figures show that the population of St. Louis County also declined by 2 percent during the past decade to a total of just under 1 million people.
