While the US Census has not released 2018 State population estimates yet, the World Population Review site has.

Here they show Idaho, Nevada, and Washington as the biggest gainers (by percentage) this year.

Seems like Hawaii has been in the red for at least a couple years. Trouble in paradise? Island fever? Or just a blip in the radar for a revolving door state?

And wow, solid growth for Minnesota. The coldest Great Lakes state grows the fastest, and it seems to be the trend for a few years now.

New Mexico continues to be one of the slowest growing states while all the states that border it are booming.

Generally true but the high growth of expensive Seattle is an exception.

1 in 5 Americans is either a Californian or a Texan.

1 in 3 lives in either CA, Tx, FL, or NY.

Interesting
