U.S. Census Bureau data show both Las Animas County and Trinidad lost residents over the past 10 years — but local elected officials in Trinidad said that the 2020 census results may not be a true representation of the area’s current state.  

Las Animas County saw a 6.1% decrease to its population between 2010 and 2020 censuses losing some 952 residents from its 2010 census count. At the same time the City of Trinidad lost 8.4% of its population or some 767 residents.
