The county’s population is now estimated at 753,030. DeKalb has added more than 60,000 people since 2010, the ARC said. The data is contained in the 2019 Regional Snapshot released this week, the organization’s annual population estimate.
DeKalb's 8,500-person increase is the third-highest in the state behind Fulton and Gwinnett counties. But it is less than the growth recorded in the 2018 Regional Snapshot, when DeKalb's population grew by 10,630.
