Chickasaw County vs. Iowa
Comparative Trends Analysis:
Population Growth and Change, 1969-2022
Introduction
Chickasaw County vs. Iowa
Chickasaw County:
2022 Population = 11,716
2022 Percent of State = 0.37%
Iowa:
2022 Population = 3,200,517
2022 Percent of U.S. = 0.96%
Attracting and retaining people to live, work, raise a family, and retire underlies the economic vitality of any region. Population growth is both a cause--and a consequence--of economic growth. Patterns of population growth and change reflect differences among regions to attract and retain people both as producers and consumers in their economy.
The following graphs offer a broad overview of trends in the pattern of population growth and change of Chickasaw County with comparisons to Iowa and the nation at large. This analysis features alternative approaches toward discussing, diagnosing and comparing Chickasaw County vs. Iowa's population growth over 1969-2022. The data used are those compiled by the Regional Income and Product Divisions of the Bureau of Economic Analysis, U.S. Department of Commerce.

Figure 1.
Figure 1 tracks Chickasaw County's annual population for the period 1969-2022 to illustrate population patterns over time. During this 54-year period, Chickasaw County's population dropped from 14,658 in 1969 to 11,716 in 2022, for a net loss of -2,942, or -20.07%.
NOTE: The county and state population totals reported by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) are from the Bureau of Census midyear (July 1) estimates. These estimates may differ from those prepared independently in some states by various agencies and/or universities.

Figure 3.
Figure 3 shows Chickasaw County's population growth in a broader context by offering direct comparisons across time with Iowa, the United States. The growth indices shown here express each region's population in 1969 as a base figure of 100, and the populations in later years as a percentage of the 1969 base figure. This method allows for more direct comparison of differences in population growth between regions that may differ vastly in size.
Chickasaw County's overall population growth was -20.07% over 1969-2022 trailed Iowa's increase of 14.10%, and fell below the United States' increase of 65.57%.

Figure 4.
Another interesting and insightful way of highlighting the population growth of Chickasaw County is to compare its individual percentage contributions to Iowa's statewide population over time, as shown in Figure 4. A rising share means a region's population grew faster, or declined less, than Iowa's population, while a declining share shows it grew more slowly.
In 1969, Chickasaw County's population totaled 0.52% of Iowa's population, while in 2022 it comprised 0.37% thereby yielding a -0.16% share-shift.

Figure 5.
Figure 5 shows the short-run pattern of Chickasaw County's population growth by tracking the year-to-year percent change over 1970-2022. The average annual percent change for the entire 53-year period is also illustrated on this chart to provide a benchmark for gauging periods of relative high--and relative low--growth against the backdrop of the long-term average.
On average, Chickasaw County's population contracted at an annual rate of -0.42% over 1970-2022. The county recorded its highest growth in 1975 (1.79%) and recorded its lowest growth in 1987 (-3.23%). In 2022, Chickasaw County's population declined by -1.54%

Figure 6.
Over the past five decades some counties have experienced extreme swings in growth, and often such swings have tended to coincide with the decades themselves. Figure 6 again depicts the annual percent change in Chickasaw County's population since 1970, but this time they are overlayed with average growth rates for the decade of the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, 2010s, and 2020-2022.
During the 1970s, Chickasaw County's annual population growth rate averaged 0.56%. It averaged -1.43% during the 1980s, -0.16% throughout the 1990s, -0.58% throughout the 2000s, -0.32% throughout the 2010s, -0.99% thus far this decade (2020-2022).

Figure 7.
Figure 7 compares the decade average growth rates for Chickasaw County noted in the previous graph with the corresponding decade averages for Iowa and the nation. As the chart reveals, Chickasaw County's average annual population growth surpassed Iowa's average in the 1970s (0.56% vs. 0.39%), fell below Iowa's average during the 1980s (-1.43% vs. -0.51%), trailed Iowa's average in the 1990s (-0.16% vs. 0.52%), amounted to less than Iowa's average during the 2000s (-0.58% vs. 0.39%), recorded under Iowa's average in the 2010s (-0.32% vs. 0.49%), and amounted to less than Iowa's average over the 3 year period of the current decade, 2020-2022 (-0.99% vs. 0.17%).
Finally, relative to nationwide population growth trends, Chickasaw County posted below the nation over the 1970s (0.56% vs. 1.10%), posted below the nation throughout the 1980s (-1.43% vs. 0.95%), fell below the nation in the 1990s (-0.16% vs. 1.23%), fell under the nation over the 2000s (-0.58% vs. 0.95%), lagged the nation in the 2010s (-0.32% vs. 0.74%), and trailed the nation over 2020-2022 (-0.99% vs. 0.31%).
