Pacesetting growth in Panhandle

Lancaster was the state’s fastest-growing county last year, propelled by the continuing influx of residents to the Panhandle, according to new census data.
The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that the county had a population of 89,594 last July – a 4.15 percent increase from a year earlier and a 17 percent jump from the 76,652 residents counted in the 2010 census.
Lancaster is now the 16th most populous among the state’s 46 counties.
