Data from the 2020 census was released toward the end of the summer and early fall.

The number of residents in Brazoria County in 2020 was more than 50% what it was in 2000, and in Galveston County its 2020 population was more than 40% of what it was in 2000.

As the total population across Brazoria and Galveston counties, including Pearland and Friendswood, grew overall, the percentage of the white population stagnated while the population of two or more races exploded.

As the total population has grown across the south Greater Houston area, the Hispanic population has seen a rapid rise as well, growing by at least 32% in a 10-year window.
