Demographics

U.S. Census Data 

Since its incorporation in 1956, the Village of Schaumburg has grown from a population of 130 to be among the fifteen most populous communities in Illinois. The population increase of the Village from the mid-1960's to 1990 has been nothing short of phenomenal. Population growth since 1990 has been slowed with little land left for residential development. Future population growth will be contingent upon the economy, household size, and redevelopment. It's anticipated that Schaumburg will reach a population of 83,000 by 2020.
