Idaho tops list of fastest-growing states

Idaho was the fastest growing state during the year, at 2.2 percent, followed by Nevada, Utah, Washington and Florida.

New York's population count continued to benefit from new immigrants, though the state also continued to lose residents to other states.

The U.S. Census Bureau on Wednesday announced that Idaho's population from July 2016 to July 2017 increased 2.2 percent to 1.7 million. Pennsylvania was the fifth-most populous state in the 1990 census, but was passed by IL in the 2000 census.

Since Texas' population was already large, the state grew just 1.4 percent over the past year.

"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.

Of course, percentage growth differs from numeric growth - that top title went to Texas, which brought in an additional 400,000 residents between July 2016 and July 2017, bringing the Southern state's total population to 28.3 million people.

Among the six New England states, Massachusetts, both in terms of percentages and raw numbers, saw larger increases than any one else.

However, net global migration decreased 1.8 percent - the first drop since 2012 to 2013.

The Census Bureau only released state and national figures; local estimates are expected to be released next year. The population exodus is likely much greater as the bureau's estimate doesn't account for the thousands of Puerto Ricans who left the island in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in September. That and a net gain of 6,836 global migrants made up for a net loss of 2,724 people moving to other states, according to the estimates.

The state did have a net gain in the number of people moving there from other countries. Wyoming, at about 579,000 people, is the least populous state.
