West Virginia loses nearly 10000 residents over past year

Those are among the findings of annual population estimates released Tuesday by the U.S. Census Bureau.

Idaho is one of the nation's fastest-growing states. This data was posted on December 20, 2016.

Meanwhile, Missouri saw a slight bump in population while IL lost more residents than any other state.

Research from the Idaho Department of Labor shows that Idaho's population is moving from the rural areas to the more urban areas, a pattern seen in most US states.

The Empire State's out-migration - the number of people leaving to other states compared to new residents - continues to be an issue.

The most recent figures show a dip, with the state losing a net of just 1,894 people from a year earlier, for a total population of 19,745289.

California had about 11 million more people than Texas, who's at the No. 2 spot.

N.J. population outstrips power in D.C.

The fastest growing state by percentage was Utah, whose population increased 2 percent over the past year to 3.1 million people.

The rate of growth has stalled over the past year. "In 2016, 37.9 percent of the nation's population lived in the South and 23.7 percent lived in the West".

"Picture the entire city of Peoria packing up and moving across state lines - that's how severe Illinois' out-migration was over the past year", said Michael Lucci of the Illinois Policy Institute.
