Idaho tops list of fastest-growing states

Pennsylvania moves into fifth place in latest population estimates

IL was just one of eight states in the nation to lose population between mid-2016 and mid-2017, with much of it due to people leaving for other states, according to new estimates published Wednesday by the federal government.

Census data released by the U.S. Census Bureau show MA from July 1016 through July 2017, saw its population increase by about half a percent. The loss caused it to slip behind Pennsylvania to the 6th most populous state in the nation.

Iowa's population grew by half of one percent, ranking it 26th in the nation.

Idaho came in at No. 1, with a 2.2 percent increase to 1.7 million from July 1, 2016 to July 1, 2017. Only West Virginia has seen more consecutive years of population decline, with five.

Looking at the numbers in a different way, Texas leads in the numeric increase of residents, adding 399,734 people to its population over one year, with a total population of 28.3 million.

On the bright side, IL has seen an increased racial, ethnic and gender diversity in the state's work-aged population.

Pennsylvania remains behind California, Texas, Florida and NY in total population.

The U.S. Census says NY state's population bumped up slightly to 19.85 million.

Different states in the West - Nevada, Utah and Washington - saw comparative rate increments in their populace. Florida comes in at number three, pushing NY down a peg to four when compared to counts from the 2010 Census. Vermont - the least populated state with 623,354 residents, gained 303. But the Census Bureau's population estimates did not account for the hurricanes in August and September that hit the Gulf states and Puerto Rico.

Idaho had the highest rate of growth, at 2.2 percent.

Maine's population increased by around 5,600, and Rhode Island by around 2,000. Net worldwide migration decreased 1.8% - the first drop since 2012 to 2013.
