City to challenge census results

Has Sundance really lost an eighth of its population over the last ten years? The city council doesn’t think so, and now aims to challenge the results of the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2020 redistricting data.

The data was released a month ago and stated that Sundance saw a significant reduction in population from 1182 to 1032 between the years of 2010 and 2019. This loss of 150 citizens represents a 12.7% decline.

Sundance was not alone – of the municipalities in Crook County, all but Pine Haven saw a decline. The county itself, however, saw a modest growth of 1.4% from 7083 to 7181 citizens.
