21 December, 2017, 01:26 | Author: Martin Tyler
  • Illinois No Longer 5th Most Populous State in US Census Bureau

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). The loss caused it to slip behind Pennsylvania to the 6th most populous state in the nation.

The U.S. territory Puerto Rico lost more than 69,000 residents a year ago and filed for the equivalent of federal bankruptcy protection in May.

Iowa, meanwhile, gained 14,842 people for an estimated population of 3,145,711. In percentage terms, IL saw the third-worst population decline in the nation.

AT&T, Boeing and Wells Fargo pass tax cut savings to workers
Boeing, a major defense contractor, gets almost one-quarter of its revenue from the federal government. The company also increased its capital expenditures budget by $1 billion in the US .

The U.S. population grew by 2.3 million between July 1, 2016 and July 1 of this year, to 325.7 million people. In 2017, 38.0 percent of the nation's population lived in the South and 23.8 percent lived in the West.

The top 10 most populous states, in order, are: California, Texas, Florida, New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Ohio, Georgia, North Carolina and MI.

The state did have a net gain in the number of people moving there from other countries. Florida comes in at number three, pushing NY down a peg to four when compared to counts from the 2010 Census. But this was offset by some 45,000 people from other counties moving to MA, resulting in a net migration increase of 22,000.

The natural increase - 7,513 births less 4,847 deaths - was 2,666 over that period. The state also was seventh a year ago after ranking No. 2 nationally in growth from mid-2014 to mid-2015. The state's population now stands at almost 28.3 million residents -an increase of more than 3 million residents since 2010.

Other states in the West - Nevada, Utah and Washington - saw similar percentage increases in their population. Florida and Arizona came in next at 1.6 percent growth.

The top 10, in order, were: Texas, Florida, California, Washington, North Carolina, Georgia, Arizona, Colorado, Tennessee and SC.
