Gone To Texas

Texas gained more people than any other state between July 1, 2011, and July 1, 2012, but North Dakota was the fastest-growing state, according to Census Bureau population estimates released today.

North Dakota’s population climbed by 2.17 percent, nearly three times faster than the nation as a whole. Following it was the District of Columbia (2.15 percent), Texas (1.67 percent), Wyoming (1.60 percent), Utah (1.45 percent) and Nevada (1.43 percent).

The United States population increased by 2.3 million from 2011 to 2012, to 313.9 million for an overall growth rate of 0.75 percent.

In the year ending July 1, Texas added the most people (427,400), followed by California (357,500), Florida (235,300), Georgia (107,500) and North Carolina (101,000). Those five states accounted for more than half of the nation’s total growth.

California remained the most populous state, with a population of 38 million. Rounding out the top five were Texas (26.1 million), New York (19.6 million), Florida (19.3 million) and Illinois (12.9 million).
