WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Newly released census figures show that the state of Delaware has grown by more than 10 percent since the last count a decade ago but is still short of 1 million people.

The Delaware News Journal reports that the state is now roughly 10,000 people shy of hitting a mark of 1 million inhabitants. Delaware had 989,948 people in April, a boost from its population of 897,934 in 2010. Some experts have worried that the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in an undercounting of people living in marginalized communities.

In Delaware, this largely means neighborhoods in Wilmington and Georgetown.
