The U.S. Census Bureau recently reported on where the heaviest population growth in New Jersey was concentrated last year.

The fastest-growing county in New Jersey between July 1, 2013, and July 1, 2014, was Hudson County, whose population rose 0.8 percent over the period. Hudson County was followed by Bergen County 0.7 percent, Middlesex County 0.7 percent, Union County 0.6 percent and Ocean County 0.5 percent.

With respect to numerical growth, Bergen County added 6,138 people over the period, more than any other county in the state. It was followed by Middlesex County, which grew by 5,482 people, Hudson County 5,209, Essex County 3,632 and Union County 3,216.

Bergen County is the most populous county in New Jersey, with 933,572 residents, followed by Middlesex County and Essex County.

This information is based on annual population estimates for each of the nation’s counties, county equivalents, metropolitan statistical areas, and micropolitan statistical areas since the 2010 Census and up to July 1, 2014.
