The population of Chandler grew by more than 7,500 people between 2013 and 2018, according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s latest population estimates.

The U.S. Census Bureau released new five-year estimates from the 2014-2018 American Community Survey on Dec. 19. According to the bureau, the annual data release “helps local officials, community leaders and businesses understand the changes taking place in their communities.”

The 2018 American Community Survey five-year estimates put Chandler’s population at 248,631—3,471 people higher than the 2017 ACS five-year population estimate of 245,160 released last year.

The largest plurality of Chandler’s population is between 35 and 44 at 15.3%, or 38,076 people, which is roughly where the city was five years ago in 2013, according to the data. But the city has seen an increase in the number of residents ages 25-34 living in Chandler in those five years. In 2013, 35,857 residents were between 25 and 34, and in 2018, that number is 37,555.

The number of residents who identify as Hispanic is down slightly from 2013, according to the 2018 data. 53,062 residents indicated they were Hispanic, as compared to 55,613 in 2013. The number of residents who identify as Asian increased from 20,772 in 2013 to 25,698 in 2018, according to the data.
