From its inception on 1 Jan 1797 until 1950 the population of Bullitt County remained mostly rural, and generally grew at a modest rate from census to census as shown in the graphic below.
Beginning in the decade between 1950 and 1960, the county began a period of exceptional growth, as you can see from the graph. This was largely due to an influx of suburban growth spilling over from Jefferson County.
Beneath the graph you will find a table of data that describes the growth.
