Enterprise expects to see increase in this year’s census


ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WDHN) — In the 2000 and 2010 national census, the city of Enterprise proved to be one of the fastest-growing mid-size cities in the state.

As its largest municipality, that growth is expected to be seen in Coffee County’s overall growth in 2020. Commissioner Jimmy Jones says it’s important for all residents to participate when the counting gets underway next month.

“It’s very important that you fill out the census form. It means a lot for housing, health care, Medicaid so make sure you fill out the census count,” Jones said.

For the last two census counts, Enterprise has shown a 25% overall increase in its residential population.
