Census: Illinois loses title of 5th largest state to Pennsylvania

Texas population grew to 28.3 million in 2017

Following Idaho in the top 10 were Nevada (2.0 percent), Utah (1.9), Washington (1.7), Florida and Arizona (tied at 1.6) and Colorado, Texas, District of Columbia and OR (tied at 1.4).

Still, residents moving to the US from other countries continue to be a significant factor in USA population growth as 1.1 million people moved to the USA over the previous year, according to the census bureau. That puts it at a record above 12.8 million people. Although the new figures were released Wednesday, they reflect population changes from July 1, 2016, to July 1, 2017.

As of July 1, an estimated 10,273,419 people lived in North Carolina, almost 117,000 more than the previous year.

IL was among eight states that saw their population fall, and lost more people than the seven other states that dropped.

Illinois' population fell by 33,703 people to just over 12.8 million, according to the estimates.

TMZ reported that Cantor says she was "subjected to ongoing and continuing sexual harassment by current and former on-air talent". Three former NFL players with close ties to New Orleans are accused of sexual misconduct while on the job as football analysts.

Wyoming saw the largest percentage decline. IL also experienced a natural increase in population, meaning the number of births over deaths. The growth rate of 1.1 percent made North Carolina the 12th fastest growing state, just behind SC and ahead of Montana. In 2017, 38.0 percent of the nation's population lived in the South and 23.8 percent lived in the West.

Population estimates list Utah with 3,101,833 people.

The new estimates did not reflect the impact on Gulf state of Hurricane Harvey and Irma, which occurred in August and September, respectively.

"While keeping [Rhode Island's] two congressional districts with the 2017 numbers, the new data shows the state is now only 157 people away from dropping to a single district state", Brace, president of the firm Election Data Services, wrote in an analysis.
