IL loses title of 5th largest state to Pennsylvania


The estimates, published by the U.S. Census Bureau, estimated population changes between July 1, 2016 and July 1, 2017.

Behind Texas, Florida, California, Washington and North Carolina round out the top five states that added the most individuals in that time period. Many neighboring states, like Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota and MI, all saw moderate population gains during the same period.

"A lot of states have witnessed similar issues and come back from them", Harger said, referring to Pennsylvania, which he says has seen a population increase of about 103,000 since 2010. The Census pegged Pennsylvania's population at 12,805,537.

Idaho is the country's fastest-growing state, according to U.S. Census Bureau data released Wednesday. Its population increased 2.2 percent to 1.7 million from July 1, 2016, to July 1, 2017.

"Rural counties and downstate IL have taken the brunt of population declines in the past, but the number of people in Chicago, which has propped up the state, has leveled off", Harger said. In 2017, 38.0 percent of the nation's population lived in the South and 23.8 percent lived in the West. It's a.72 percent growth nationwide.

Meanwhile, in neighboring states such as Idaho, Colorado and Utah, the labor market continued to expand, which drew a number of people away from Wyoming.

Since 2010, IL has lost almost 643,000 people on net to other states. Be that as it may, the Census Bureau's populace gauges did not represent the storms in August and September that hit the Gulf states and Puerto Rico. IL had the largest numeric decline, losing 33,703 people (this was a relatively small percentage change compared to its population of 12.8 million).

ME grew 4 percent, Rhode Island by 2 percent, and CT and Vermont basically broke even.

The census said net global migration decreased 1.8 percent between 2016 and 2017, making it the first drop since 2012-2013.

Maine's population increased by around 5,600, and Rhode Island by around 2,000.
