Idaho saw its population boom by 2.2% over the a year ago, leading the nation in population growth during that period, according to U.S. Census Bureau data estimates released Wednesday.
Over the past year, the population increased by 1.9 percent - or slightly more than 57,500 people - and closely followed behind similar surges in Idaho at 2.2 percent and Nevada at 2.0 percent.
The agency says that's about 37,000 more people living in the state.

Idaho came in at No. 1, with a 2.2 percent increase to 1.7 million from July 1, 2016 to July 1, 2017.

IL had the largest numeric decline, losing 33,703 people (a relatively small percentage change compared to its population of 12.8 million).
As for why the decline is happening, Harger said it could be linked to a declining birth rate for the state, a drop in domestic migration - meaning people coming to IL from other states - and a "leveling off" of foreign migration.

By total population, Colorado grew from 5,530,105 to 5,607,154 during the one-year period, and was up from 5,029,325 in 2010, the Census Bureau said.
Idaho had the highest rate of growth, at 2.2 percent.
