Town’s population grows 17 percent
by Gabe Donio, Gazette Staff Writer
HAMMONTON—According to the United States Census, the town of Hammonton’s population is 14,791, an increase of 17 percent when compared with the town’s population according to the 2000 U.S. Census.
“I think that Hammonton is well-positioned. The secret is out that Hammonton is a geographical location with major thoroughfares that puts people a half hour to Atlantic City, or over the bridge to Philly, or to Vineland, or to Medford. It’s a great small town feeling. There are a number of reasons for the growth,” Mayor Stephen DiDonato said.
The surge in population continues an upward trend for the second straight census. From 1980 to 1990, the census had shown a decline in the local population.
According to the 1980 U.S. Census, the town’s population was 12,298. In 1990, the population fell to 12,208. In 2000, the figure rose to 12,604, a 3.2 percent increase.
In 2010, the population of Hammonton was 14,791, a 17 percent increase.
Census figures show a population increase of more than 20 percent during the last 20 years. The town is outpacing the projected growth figures featured in the 2010-2011 Greater Hammonton Chamber of Commerce Guide, which had the town reaching the population figure of 14,395 by 2015.
“It’s the small-town feel, the quaintness of it. It’s the work done by MainStreet and in addition to it, the events like the Red, White and Blueberry Festival and the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. People come to town and they see how nice it is. We welcome all. Hammonton welcomes all,” DiDonato said.
The racial makeup of Hammonton was as follows (figures in parentheses represent numbers from the 2000 U.S. Census):
White, 12,080 (10,292) or 81.7 percent;
Black or African American, 444 (187) or 3.0 percent;
Hispanic, 3,096 (1,876) or 20.9 percent;
American Indian and Alaska Native, 42 or 0.3 percent;
Asian, 203 or 1.4 percent;
Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander, 2 or 0 percent;
Some Other Race, 1,599 or 10.8 percent; and
Two or More Races, 421 or 2.8 percent.
All population totals include children under 18.
Hispanics are categorized by the Census Bureau as an ethnicity, not a race. Hispanics can be of any race, according to the Census Bureau.
According to the 2010 Census, the number of housing units also jumped, from a total of 4,843 housing units in 2000 (including 224 vacant homes) to an all-time high of 5,715 total housing units in 2010 (including 307 vacant homes).
“In the economy that we have experienced from 2007 to 2010, to have 900 more homes and 800 of those homes are still being occupied, that’s an impressive number in itself. I’m very encouraged and very impressed with the amount of growth we’ve had in the last 10 years, and the stability of that growth,” DiDonato, a homebuilder whose company, KMD Construction, built some of the new housing units in Hammonton, said.
