Rensselaer Plateau Town Populations

Having completed a posting for each of the ten Rensselaer County towns having some of land on the Plateau, I thought it would be interesting to list, in descending order, their 2010 census populations. Of course, with the exception of Grafton, only a portion of the population figures shown below reside within the confines of the Rensselaer Plateau. I expect to eventually see a Google Map feature that will allow us to determine the population within the geographic boundary of the Plateau.

Brunswick    11,941
Sand Lake     8,530
Hoosick          6,924
Pittstown       5,735
Nassau          4,789
Poestenkill     4,530
Stephentown  2,903
Grafton          2,130
Berlin            1,880
Petersburgh   1,525
Total           50,887

Total of all Rensselaer County towns:   159,428
