2010 Census Results
Results from the 2010 Census help to illustrate a decade of change in Arlington, including population increase, race, ethnicity and age of residents, and total housing units and occupancy. Some of the key changes, drawn from the U.S. Census Bureau Redistricting Data Summary File, are included here.
Results by Neighborhood
The census defines population further by race and ethnicity. The following documents provide a more detailed look at percentage of increase in specific Arlington neighborhoods.
Demographics by Civic Association
Demographic information, drawn from 2010 U.S. Census Data, is available for each of Arlington’s civic associations. The following data sheets include information on population, race, age, and household information. You can also view demographics by County Planning Area.
Note: In some cases, the civic association boundary does not follow the Census 2010 Block geography. If the civic association boundary crossed into a Census Block, the entire Census Block was included in the tabulation.

2010 Census Outreach Efforts
Arlington’s census outreach campaign successfully increased both the total number of households participating in the census and participation rates in hard-to-count communities. “Arlington, Let’s Get Counted!” was used as a regional model by the U.S. Census Bureau.
The census staff report explores the social and face-to-face components of the campaign, as well as outreach efforts of the Complete Count Committee and County staff. The video slideshow documents census outreach activities including a housing fair, canvassing the Buckingham neighborhood, the St. Patrick’s Day parade, and “Arlington Counts!” — an employment and services showcase held at Ballston mall.
