Oliicial figures for tin 1 stau> show an increase in population during Die decade of 94,905. with two r-ounties—Pulaski and Mississippi accounting for 29.286'. ntavly one third of that total. No other county in the state increased as much as ten thousand during the period. Mississippi County's gain was 10.928. Puluski Countv "led with 1 8.358. Northeast Shows Gain The grcuu of counties commonly known > as Northeast Arkansas continued to account for outstanding gains and 10 contribute largely to ill" population increase. Eleven Northeast Arkansas counties, with f. total population of -500.956 in 1930. today have a total of 437.447. a net gain of HG.220 which represents 38 percent of the net gain for the sUue. This group of counties represents practically one fourth of the entire population of Arkansas today. With 27 of the states 75 conn- | j ies showing total net losses of i 24.129 people during the period, ' the remaining 48 counties were! colled upon lo show increases to- j tailing 119.025 in order to reach ' the state total attained in the census, and of that amount the ' Northeast Arkansas group con- •' t: ibuted practically one-third. The ! percentage of population increase tor the Northeast Arkansas group was 9.1 per cent as compared to the state's figure of 5.1 per cent.. Of the 75 counties in the state, only nine showed population increases amounting to as much as 15 per-'"cent—five of" which ' were in northeast and southeast Arkansas, with' Mississippi County' having a 15.8 uer cent increase.
