The 2010 census data shows the population of Georgia was 9,687,653. The data shows population growth of 1,501,200 from 2000 to 2010, an 8.4% increase. Likewise, Cobb County’s population grew from just over 600,000 in 2000 to 688,078 in 2010, an 8.8% jump.
During the same period, Kennesaw experienced much faster population growth. Now the ninth largest city in the Atlanta metro area by population, Kennesaw saw an increase of over 8,000, growing from 21,675 to 29,783, a 34.4% jump. While other Cobb County cities showed a significant drop in the 10-29 age group, Kennesaw recorded a 3.5% increase, partly because of the explosive growth of Kennesaw State University, which is adjacent to the city’s geographic boundaries. The rapid growth of Kennesaw’s population is also spurred by our favorable location with respect to transportation (I-75 and US Highway 41) and abundant housing options across a broad economic spectrum.
