North Carolina One Of The Fastest Growing States In America

The US Census just released their new 2017 population estimates showing that North Carolina saw one of the highest population increases in the nation.The Tar Heel state grew by a whopping 117,000 residents between July 2016-July 2017, making us the 5th fastest growing state in the nation. This represented a 1.15% growth rate – almost double the national average.According to the Census Bureau, “the U.S. population grew by 2.3 million between July 1, 2016, and July 1, 2017, representing a 0.72 percent increase to 325.7 million. 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). Net international migration decreased 1.8 percent between 2016 and 2017, making it the first drop since 2012-2013. However, net international migration continues to be a significant factor in the population growth of the United States, adding just over 1.1 million people in the last year.”We kept our spot as the 9th most populated state between Georgia (#8) and Michigan (#10).South Carolina also ranked on the top 10 fastest growing states, with a total population growth of 64,547 people.Top 10 States in Numeric Growth: 2016 to 2017 Rank Name 2010 2016  2017 Numeric growth 1 Texas 25,146,100 27,904,862 28,304,596 399,734 2 Florida 18,804,594 20,656,589 20,984,400 327,811 3 California 37,254,518 39,296,476 39,536,653 240,177 4 Washington   6,724,545   7,280,934   7,405,743 124,809 5 North Carolina   9,535,721 10,156,689 10,273,419 116,730 6 Georgia   9,688,690 10,313,620 10,429,379 115,759 7 Arizona   6,392,309   6,908,642 7,016,270 107,628 8 Colorado   5,029,325   5,530,105   5,607,154 77,049 9 Tennessee   6,346,295   6,649,404   6,715,984 66,580 10 South Carolina   4,625,381   4,959,822   5,024,369 64,547Source: http://www.charlottestories.com/new-census-data-ranks-north-carolina-one-fastest-growing-states-america/
