Murfreesboro Census 2018


Murfreesboro is one of the fastest growing municipalities in the country and is conducting a Special Census to certify the city's growth in population. The census survey can be filled out here in electronic form. Residents can also fill out a hard copy census form and return by pre-postage paid mail to the City of Murfreesboro.

Why Participate?

It's important to verify the latest population, and imperative that all residents respond, because of the State-shared tax revenues the City of Murfreesboro receives for each certified resident. For fiscal year 2017-18, the state is paying $127.45 per resident in State-shared revenues. Adding the expected 20,000 people to our population could mean an additional 2.5 million a year for the City of Murfreesboro.
