Oil rich N. Dakota grows fastest, while RI and VT LOSE residents
Posted by Staff
The Daily Mail reports:

An aging population, lower fertility rates and lower than usual immigration mean that for the first time in its history the population of the United States may be leveling off.

With women waiting longer to have children and less married people than at any time previously, new 2012 estimates from the Census Bureau show the population increasing at the steady rate of 0.75 percent.

Across the country, states such as Rhode Island and Vermont have experienced drops in population, while North Dakota grew faster than any state in the nation, climbing by 2.2 percent from July 2011 to July of this year.

In all, the U.S. population is now increasing slightly faster, thanks to an improving economy, but not enough to lift growth above its lowest level since the Great Depression.
