Wadena County population shrinks
Wadena County experienced an unexpected shrink in population, according to county officials after hearing a demographics report from the Region Five Development Commission.
The county's 13,713 population in 2000 declined by 63 residents to 13,650 in 2005.
The previous report predicted a slight increase in population over the next 10 years instead of the slight decrease the county recently experienced, said Mary Harrison, county commissioner.
