Malden’s Population Continues to Rise

Take a look at Malden’s growth in the last three years.

Malden’s population increased by 2 percent between 2010 and 2013, according to new U.S. Census data released this week.

Malden had 59,554 residents in 2010 and that number rose 955 to 60,509 in 2013.

The 2 percent figure for Malden is higher than the 1 percent median growth rate among Massachusetts communities that was reported by the Boston Business Journal but well below the 10 percent population increase in Cohasset, which saw the most growth in the state.

Aw Julie, it's not nice to go spoiling Matt's fantasy of being censored. It makes him feel all important.

Matthew, did you even check the link that I provided? I'm guessing that you didn't. Allow me to educate you even further. I called the METCO office, and asked if Malden was a participating city. The answer I received was NO. I know, facts are stubborn things. But the fact is that you're just wrong. BTW - the phone call took less than a minute. Checking the website took about two minutes. Both things that you could easily have done if you really wanted to know. As for where all "those" kids on the Orange line are going - frankly, it's none of your damn business as long as they're minding theirs.

Dianne, I'm referring to them arriving in the morning on the orange line to go to school here. Where are they coming from?
