The 2010 Census data for New York State was released today.

The population in Royalton was 7,660. During the last Census in 2000 it was 7,710. That's a drop of 50 people or 0.6% of the population.

The population in Hartland during 2010 was 4,117. The 2000 Census indicated 4,165. That's a drop of 48 or 1.2% of the population.

Those results are not too shabby given that Erie and Niagara Counties combined lost nearly 3% of their population. See, people love Gasport!
