Demographics and Statistics

The inland areas of Brunswick County, mostly rural in nature, appeal to those who prefer a quiet lifestyle and peaceful surroundings. Comprising only 4.1 square miles of the 1,050 in Brunswick County, Leland is an ideal place to find this serene way of living, and it hasn’t gone unnoticed. With more than 16,000 full-time residents compared to the 1,938 in 2000, you can see how the population has exploded. The average household holds about 3 residents, and 70 percent of the town is made up of family units. Many people are attracted to Leland because of its close proximity to Wilmington, yet with a much lower cost of living index.
