The Census Bureau released the new population numbers for each state and every county in the US. The new numbers show the percent population change from 2000-2006 for each state. It also shows the individual county breakdown and the population percentage gain or loss between 2000-2006. The fastest growing regions continue to be the western states, and the southeast. The plains and midwest had the slowest population growth in the last six years.
To see how your state or individual county stacks up you can go to http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/index.html

Looks like Colorado's numbers are about the same as last year. I noticed that the fertility rate has gone up markedly since 2000. Interesting. I didn't bother checking other states but I expect that the most fecund states are the more conservative ones--stretching from Arizona, Colorado, Texas all the way up to the Carolinas.

The only state that has declined in population between 2000-2006 is North Dakota. Nevada and Arizona lead the nation in population growth betweeen 2000-2006.
The plains states continue to experience massive population decline in the rural areas while the metro population has been growing substantially.
Also, states in the western part of the country seem to be experiencing solid job growth and income growth over the past several years.
