Given that NC has been adding ~100,000+ a year since the last Census (April 2010) and was sitting at nearly 9.85 million as of 2013, the state should be nearing 10 million in population. Does anyone know if a real time population estimation tool exists at the state level? I'm thinking of something like the real time world population clocks for the US and World like this: Population Clock

No it doesn't. Leave it on that page for long enough and it changes. According to that world population clock, there's a net gain of one person in the US once every 15 seconds. NC is only ~3% of the nation's population. By my math, it should rise by 1 approximately every 478.5 seconds (assuming population of all states rises the same...which it doesn't).

*edit* In fact, it just changed from 9,938,925 to 9,938,926 while I was looking at it.

That's interesting because I am just now looking at it and it is 2 people less than what you are stating.
Also, I am not sure that this clock is linked to the Census count because it seems off of the last three years of population growth. We are almost to 2015 and this number is only ~90,000 over the 2013 estimate (not sure what time of the year that number is estimated) and I'd suspect that the Census count is somewhat higher.
In the end, clearly this site isn't focused on the population count as much as it on monetary stats.
Thanks for the link, it's the only one I have seen so far.

Yeah, I'm not sure what their parameters are for NC population growth. NC is definitely closing in on 10 million though. I remember in elementary school when we learned all about NC in social studies class, and the population was only about 6 million at the time. Lots of growth in the last 30 years.

Based on the average of adding ~260 people per day in NC (from 7/1/13 to 7/1/14), we should hit 10 million in early February 2015.

Seems that NC & GA have moved past Michigan and heading to take overtake Ohio too.

It'll take a while to overtake Ohio. Assuming Ohio population remains relatively flat (probably likely) and current grown for NC and GA continue, it will take ~15 years for GA and NC to be #7 and #8, respectively.
