GIS Service Center County Fact Book

St. Louis County Fact Book 2007-2012

St. Louis County, with a 2010 population of 998,954, is the largest county in Missouri and has the highest per capita income in Missouri ($54,343 in 2008, from the Bureau of Economic Analysis). St. Louis County is the heart of the St. Louis region with a strong and diversified economy and a highly skilled workforce.

The St. Louis County Fact Book is published every four or five years by the GIS Service Center. This ninth edition incorporates 2000 Census data and more recently released American Community Survey data from the Census Bureau and is designed as a source of information on St. Louis County for businesses, researchers and citizens. We hope that the 2007-2012 edition of the Fact Book will serve as a useful tool for the public.
