The fastest growing (and shrinking) states: A closer look

By Evan Comen, 24/7 Wall Street | azcentral

The population of the United States increased by 2.2 million people in 2016. Natural growth — the number of births less the number of deaths — accounted for most of the population increase, while the rest was due to international migration.

Population growth was far from even across the country. While populations in the South and West together grew by 1.1% in 2016, the Northeast and Midwest grew by just 0.1%. There were eight states, mostly in the Northeast and Midwest, where the population declined. Meanwhile, the population of eight states grew by more than 1.6%.
