Flowood is a small hamlet in Mississippi that is frequently in the news due to its residents’ various accomplishments. But there are many other factors that make Flowood the crown jewel of the greater Jackson Mississippi area.
In addition to being one of the most notable small towns in the state, it’s also one of the most ethnically diverse. As of the 2010 census, Flowood had a population of 7,823 living in 3,498 households and divided into 1,893 families. The population density was 275.3 people per square mile (106.2/km²). There were 3,787 housing units at an average density of 133.2/sq mi (51.4/km²). The racial makeup of the city was 75.24 percent White, 18.6 percent African-American, 0.19 percent Native American, 3.77 percent Asian, 0.0 percent Pacific Islander, 0.88 percent from other races and 1.32 percent from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 2.36 percent of the population. While these numbers are nowhere near the ethnic diversity found in bigger cities — including Baton Rouge and New Orleans — it is certainly much more diverse than any of the other smaller towns in the nearby vicinity.
Of the 3,498 households, 26.3 percent had children under the age of 18 living with them, 40 percent were married couples living together, and 25.6 percent were non-families. About 36 percent of all households were made up of individuals. The average household size was 2.15 and the average family size was 2.85. This suggests that the people who live in Flowood are younger, professional and less likely to have big families because they can’t afford them.
In the city, the population was spread out with 20.8 percent under the age of 20, 10.7 percent from 20 to 24, 36.8 percent from 25 to 44, 23.1 percent from 45 to 64, and 8.3 percent who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 32.6 years.
The median income for a household in the city was $51,367. The per capita income for the city was $37,103. About 10.1 percent of the population were below the poverty line. This means that Flowood is one of the so-called “better off” districts of Louisiana, albeit still far from wealthy.
