Population estimates released by the U.S. Census Bureau show Frisco’s population grew by more than 42,000 people between 2013 and 2018.

The 2018 American Community Survey five-year estimates put Frisco’s population at 165,700, which is more than 10,000 people higher than the 2017 ACS five-year population estimate of 155,363.

The U.S. Census Bureau released the latest ACS five-year estimates for 2014-18 on Dec. 19. According to the U.S. census, the annual data release “helps local officials, community leaders, and businesses understand the changes taking place in their communities.”

Frisco residents who identify as white, either alone or in combination with another race, increased from 99,199 in 2013 to 116,039 in 2018. However, that group’s percentage of the total population decreased from roughly 80% in 2013 to 70% in 2018.

Frisco’s Asian population is estimated to have grown from very close to 12% of the city in 2013 to more than 20% in 2018. That ethnicity’s population estimate went from 15,007 in 2013 to 33,959 in 2018.


The data also shows a widening gap between male and female residents in Frisco. The city’s female population is estimated to have grown from 61,936 in 2013 to 84,099 in 2018, while the male population grew from 61,727 in 2013 to 81,601 in 2018.

The largest age demographic listed in the estimates is the ages 35-44 category, which made up a little more than 22% of the population in 2013 and just above 20% in 2018. The 45-54 age category increased from more than 13% in 2013 to over 17% in 2018.
