North Carolina Now Fourth Fastest Growing State In The U.S.
On Monday, the U.S. Census Bureau figures that were released indicated that despite the downturn in the economy, North Carolina’s population increased 2 percent from July 2007 to July 2008, making it the fourth-fastest growing state in the country. These new number however do reflect a slowing of North Carolina’s growth rate. The figures from the previous year, July 2006 to July 2007, indicated a growth of 2.17 percent. The states estimated population as of July 1 was 9.2 million, according to the Census Bureau figures. The only states with a faster growth were Utah, Arizona and Texas. Following North Carolina were Colorado, Idaho, Wyoming, Nevada, Georgia and South Carolina.
North Carolina gained 180,820 residents during the year, the third largest numerical leap in the nation. Only Texas and California gained more residents than North Carolina.
Other highlights of yesterday’s Census Report were:
- Northeastern states on the whole have gained population at an increasing rate since 2005
- Six of the 10 fastest growing states were Rocky Mountain states
- The West was the fastest growing region, but the South added more people
