D.C. Leads Nation in Population Growth

D.C. experienced the nation’s fastest population growth for the first time in more than 70 years, according to newly released U.S. Census Bureau data. The District’s population grew by 2.7 percent between April 2010 and June 2011. Much of the population growth can be attributed to increases in white and Hispanic residents; at the same time, D.C.’s black population has declined.

Following D.C. in terms of percent increase between April 1, 2010, and July 1, 2011, were Texas (2.1 percent), Utah (1.9 percent), Alaska (1.8 percent), Colorado (1.7 percent) and North Dakota (1.7 percent). North Dakota was 37th in percent growth between the 2000 and 2010 censuses.
