A recent survey says Idaho is Third Fastest Growing State In U.S.
Idaho’s population grew by 1.8% between mid-2015 and mid-2016.
Idaho’s population increased to 1,683,140 as of July 1, 2016, after attracting 30,300 new residents in the prior 12 months.
The Idaho Department of Labor stated the population increase to in-migration from other states and a high birth rate.
19,000 of the 30,300 new residents moved to Idaho from other states.
Contrary to popular belief, not all 19,000 of our new residents were from California! 🙄
We Idahoans, for whatever reason, have the 7th highest birth rate in the nation.
Utah was ranked as the fastest-growing state in the nation, followed by:
- Washington D.C.
States losing population during the same period included:
- New York
- West Virginia
