  • Pennsylvania moves into fifth place in latest population estimates

On Wednesday, the U.S. Census Bureau released the latest national and state population estimates. However, roughly 8,300 more people left Wyoming than moved into the state.

The top 10, in order, were: Texas, Florida, California, Washington, North Carolina, Georgia, Arizona, Colorado, Tennessee and SC.

Wyoming, one of the least populated states, saw its population decline by almost 5,600 to 579,315, or one percent.

Migration from other states and countries accounts for the majority of the population increase, according to the data.

In all, 8,300 more people left Wyoming than moved to the state over the previous year but new births meant that the total loss of population was less than that.

Over the course of a year, Illinois' population dwindled by 33,700 people, dropping it from fifth place to sixth place on the list of most populous states in the country.

The fastest-growing state these days is Idaho.

From July 2016 to July 2017, almost 115,000 Illinoisans left for other states on net, according to the Census data. The decrease was a tiny fraction of Illinois' total population of just over 12.8 million. In 2017, 38.0 percent of the nation's population lived in the South and 23.8 percent lived in the West.

Eight states, North Carolina, Mississippi, Louisiana, Hawaii, Alaska, Illinois, West Virginia and Wyoming had negative growth, or the number of people being born and moving in is less than the number dying and moving out. Vermont - the least populated state with 623,354 residents, gained 303.

Danbury's population of 84,922 people posted the fastest growth, gaining 335 residents between 2015 and 2016, and growing by 5.1 percent since 2010.

Population growth in CT and Fairfield County is sluggish, but some communities - Stamford, Shelton and Danbury - are enjoying a growth spurt, according to census figures released earlier this year. Net global migration decreased 1.8 percent between 2016 and 2017, making it the first drop since 2012-2013.
