US Census Bureau: Idaho population booms; IL drops to sixth-biggest state

The Census Bureau says Idaho was the nation's fastest-growing state, with a population increase of 2 percent.

The northwest state, with an expected populace of more than 1.7 million individuals, had a 2.2 percent hop in populace from July 1, 2016, to July 1, 2017. However, roughly 8,300 more people left Wyoming than moved into the state. Furthermore, the population of voting-age residents (adults age 18 and over) grew to 252.1 million (77.4 percent of the 2017 total population), an increase of 0.93 percent from 2016 (249.5 million).

States in the northwest part of the USA are among the fastest growing, with Idaho, Nevada, Utah and Washington taking the top four slots.

Wyoming had the largest percentage decline among states, losing almost 5,600 resident or about 1% of the state's population. 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). The Census has numbered Pennsylvania's population at 12,805,537.

Different states in the West - Nevada, Utah and Washington - saw comparative rate increments in their populace.

The U.S. population grew by 2.3 million to 325.7 million, a less than 1% increase in population. In 2017, 38.0 percent of the nation's population lived in the South and 23.8 percent lived in the West.

Pennsylvania was the fifth-most populous state in the 1990 census, but was passed by IL in the 2000 census. Vermont - the least populated state with 623,354 residents, gained 303.

That decline is one of the worst, according to data released Wednesday by the Census Bureau.

The world population was listed at more than 1.44 billion, with China, India, the U.S., Indonesia, Brazil, Pakistan, Nigeria, Bangladesh, Russia and Japan making up the top 10 most populous countries, in order.

Be that as it may, net worldwide relocation diminished by 1.8 percent - the main drop since 2012 to 2013.
