Idaho tops list of fastest-growing states

Idaho is the fastest growing state in population according to figures released by the U.S. Census Dec. 20 2017

Meanwhile, all of Illinois' neighboring states experienced population growth in 2017.

By comparison, Missouri's population stands at 6.1 million, an increase of 124,607 people since 2010. Many neighboring states, like Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota and MI, all saw moderate population gains during the same period.

Although the mining industry, including oil and gas extraction, in Wyoming added over 1,000 jobs from mid-2016 to mid-2017, almost all other sectors of the state's economy still saw job losses, led by construction and government.

The state has added almost 200,000 new residents since 2010, when its population was just over 1.5 million, the Idaho Statesman reported.

Colorado's population now stands at 5,607,154, up from 5,530,105 past year and 5,029,325 in 2010.

According to Census population estimates made public Wednesday, the state's population grew by about 2,000 people from 2016 to 2017- putting it at 1,059,639. In 2017, 38.0 percent of the nation's population lived in the South and 23.8 percent lived in the West. That's an increase of 0.71 percent. Vermont - the least populated state with 623,354 residents, gained 303.

The new estimates did not reflect the impact on Gulf state of Hurricane Harvey and Irma, which occurred in August and September, respectively. It's a.72 percent growth nationwide. That brought the 2017 population estimate for IL to 12,802,023 people.

Eastern Idaho is tied with south-central Idaho for lowest unemployment rate: 2.6 percent.

Eight states lost population between July 1, 2016, and July 1, 2017.

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

"Domestic migration drove change in the two fastest-growing states, Idaho and Nevada, while an excess of births over deaths played a major part in the growth of the third fastest-growing state, Utah", said Luke Rogers, chief of the bureau's Population Estimates Branch. Net global migration decreased 1.8 percent between 2016 and 2017, making it the first drop since 2012-2013.
