The Renton City Council recently received a report on the community's census data from 2020. With a reported population of 107,500 people in 2020, Renton is the fourth-largest city in King County and the eighth-largest in the state of Washington. According to the report, 37% of Renton residents speak a language other than English as their primary language. In 2020, the three most common non-English languages in Renton are Spanish, Vietnamese and Chinese dialects — essentially the same languages as ten years before.
