The population in South Carolina experienced changes between 1900 and 1950. This population change had many causes including the growth of wealth during the 1920s, the vast movement of people during the 1930s, and the effects of World War I and World War II on the population—in some cases the change was positive; in others, the change was negative. These two maps may be examined to see how the population of the state changed over the first half of the twentieth century.
