New Jersey 2010 Census Numbers Are In - Little Egg Harbor & Southern Ocean County Review

If you've been living, visiting or driving in southern Ocean County at the Jersey Shore over the last 10 years, you know the population has increased dramatically. 

Now the 2010 Census figures are in and they document the population growth in Little Egg Harbor, Manahawkin, Barnegat and Ealgeswood.

 Southern Ocean County 2010 Census

Tuckerton lost population, as did every community on Long Beach Island!  Over all Ocean County grew from 511,000 to 577,000 in the last decade.  


New Jersey census data was released yesterday, earlier than most states.  That's because New Jersey Legislative Districts must be realigned for this years state legislative elections.

Each of the state's 40 districts elects one senator and two Assembly members. Depending on how Democratic and Republican voters are spaced throughout the districts, one party can have an advantage in racking up members. If more legislative districts lean Republican, for example, the GOP could capture majorities in the Legislature.

Currently, Democrats control the Senate, 24-16, and the Assembly, 47-33.  But that could all change when the districts are realigned.  Change or not, redistricting in NJ is always fun to watch! 

More information on New Jersey's redistricting!

Hi Laura~  Do you know any of the statistics for the Margate, NJ area?  I am planning on buying a home there soon. Do you cover that area?

Margate is in Atlantic County, and that's in my service area.  The figures for Margate at 8,193 in 2000 down to 6,354 in 2010!  A decrease of 22%.  It seems like all waterfront communities, with few exceptions decreased.

Hi Laura~  Thanks for the response.  I have been looking for a home in Margate recently.  I am hoping to buy one this year.  Looking for a 3 bedroom 2 bath fairly close to the beach, such as a few blocks away.  My cousin lives there on N. Essex and I love it there.

Wow 26 % is a hefty increase...do you have a lot of new construction there ?  Has that kept your market brisk?
