BELOIT - As the census looms in 2020, here are some of the 2018 projections for the Stateline Area based on updated estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau.

In Wisconsin across the Beloit-Janesville area, Beloit and the Town of Beloit are projected to experience population dips, according to the estimate, while the City of Janesville could see a resident spike.

In 2010, the city reported 36,966 residents. In the 2018 estimate, census data projected a small decrease to 36,773 residents.

Figures also show the city has a poverty rate of nearly 25 percent and a median household income of $38,930.

In Illinois, the Village of Rockton, Village of Roscoe and City of South Beloit all show slight population decline from 2010, the last year a national census was conducted, according to estimates given in 2017.

Statewide, Wisconsin's population could see growth, from 5.6 million in 2010 and an estimated 5.8 million in 2018, according to census data. Illinois faces a declining population, to 12.7 million in the 2018 estimate ahead of the 2020 survey, a decrease of around 61,000 residents.
