Population shift to area suburbs continues

By Chris Jamele

Buffalo, NY – Numbers from the 2010 Census are still being tabulated, but it is becoming clear that a common population shift to the suburbs is continuing in Western New York.

Orchard Park, Clarence and the Town of Lockport are among the growing regions, with Pendleton leading the list with a population growth of more than twenty percent.

The cities of Buffalo, Niagara Falls and Tonawanda were among those seeing a drop in numbers.
