Demographics

If crunching numbers and statistics is your thing, we’re happy to give you this opportunity. While maintaining a relatively stable population, Albion has managed since 1990 to overcome some rather serious unemployment problems. Meanwhile, our diversity – unique for a small city in rural Michigan – has remained a constant source of vitality.

The Smart Community® has seen solid improvements, but there is still room for your business to grow and prosper here. We welcome your visit, and hope you’ll like what you see.
