Steuben County experienced a slight increase in population (0.3%, bringing the number of residents in the county to 98,990).  Schuyler experienced a population loss of 4.6%, to 18,343 residents.  Chemung County lost 2.5% of their population since the 2000 Census, falling to 88,830 as of April 1, 2010.  On the local level, population loss was widespread across all three counties, although a few communities did grow between 2000 and 2010. 

Two tracts within the City of Elmira lost between 10% and 12% of their population.  The suburbs around Elmira also lost population, but at a much slower pace (ranging from 2% to 6%). 

The City of Hornell lost population and dropped to 8,563 residents in 2010.  The suburbs around Hornell experienced a slight increase in population, of about 2.7%. 

Schuyler County experienced population loss on the county level and on the town level.  Seven of the eight towns in Schuyler County lost population; only the town of Hector (pop. 4,940) experienced any population gains. 

The Big Flats- Catlin-Veteran-Horseheads area experienced population increases (between 0.4% and 6.9%).  However there was no growth in Elmira Heights.   

The communities across Steuben's southern border (from Caton to West Union, Jasper and Hartsville) experienced population growth of between 3% and 9%.

The existing population centers in central and south-east Steuben County also experienced population growth since the last Census.  Between 2000 and 2010, the village of Bath, the Town of Erwin, the Town of Corning, and the City of Corning all experienced population growth.  During this time, the rural areas in the rest of Steuben County experienced population loss. 

 

Housing * Click on the link for a map*

Some of the most rural communities within the STC region experienced an increase in the number of housing units since the last census.  These same rural communities also experienced a striking increase in the number of vacant housing units available since 2000. 

In south-east Steuben County several communities have decreased vacancy rates (Campbell, Erwin, and the City of Corning).   Elmira and the immediate suburbs also experienced a decline in housing vacancy since the 2000 Census.  In essence, the residents of these communities are 'filling up the existing housing stock'.  

According to the 2010 Census there were 96,699 housing units in the STC Region, 83,286 units (86.1%) were occupied and 13,463 units (13.9%) were vacant, on census day (4/1/2010).

On the county level, Chemung has the lowest vacancy rate.  Only 7.6% of housing units in Chemung County are vacant (2,907).  Steuben County has the highest number of vacant units 8,531 or 17.5% of units.  Schuyler County has the highest percent of vacant units, 20.4%.  More detailed information can be found in the table below.
