U.S. Decennial Census

Ackerville village has never reported a population figure separately on the U.S. Census as an unincorporated community. However, the 19th precinct within Wilcox County bore its name from 1900 to 1950. In the 1930 and 1940 returns, when the census recorded racial statistics for the precincts, both times reported a Black majority for the precinct. In 1960, the precincts were merged and/or reorganized into census divisions (as part of a general reorganization of counties) and it was consolidated into the census division of Pine Apple.
