Arizona is among the top five fastest-growing states in the U.S., according to new Census data.

About 122,770 people moved to the Grand Canyon State between July 1, 2017, and July 1, 2018, according to Census Bureau data released this week. That places Arizona at No. 4 on the list of fastest-growing states based on numeric growth. Arizona’s population now stands at 7.1 million.

Arizona was behind only California (157,696), Florida (322,513) and No. 1 Texas (379,128) as far as sheer numeric population growth.

Percentage-wise, Arizona also ranked No. 4, with a growth rate of 1.7 percent from 2017-2018, according to Census data. Nevada and Idaho topped the percentage list with growth rates of 2.1 percent each, followed by Utah, which grew by 1.9 percent for the year.
