Danvers’ population increased by 4% between 2010 and 2013, according to new U.S. Census data that was released this week.

Danvers had 26,524 residents in 2010 and that number increased to 27,483 people in 2013.

The 4% figure is higher than the 1% median growth rate among Massachusetts communities that was reported by the Boston Business Journal and, but well below the 10% population increase in Cohasset.

Communities near Danvers have also seen an influx of residents.

Neighboring Middleton and Topsfield saw a 5% increase, Wenham had a 4% increase, and Beverly’s and Salem’s populations increased 2% each. Peabody had a 1% increase.

Hi Louis: I checked into your question. Here's the answer from the U.S. Census. People who are living in "transitory locations," which includes hotels and motels, the U.S. Census counts them "at the residence where they live and sleep most of the time. If there is no residence where they live and sleep most of the time, they are counted where they live and sleep more than anywhere else."
