For the county in 1920, there were 35,355 people. In
the county in 1930, there were 32,822. During this
ten-year period the county lost about 2,500 people,
accounted for through migration into near-by urban
centers such as Dallas and Fort Worth. The city of
Denton, however, has made a consistent but slight gain
since 1920, and since 1930 fair gains have been made by
Roanoke, Justin, Aubrey, and Lake Dallas. In 1936
the city of Denton had over 11,000 people.
According to the last census report, 1930, Denton
County has a population of 32,822. Out of this num-
ber the per cent of urban and rural population is about
the same, but the rural population has a margin of
about one and one-half per cent greater than the urban.
