Florida shows the highest population growth in the country

The state of Florida projects a population growth of 1.9% from 2021 to 2022, which is the first time since 1957 that the population growth of any other state is higher.

“While Florida has often been among the states with the highest gains,” the report noted, “this was the first time since 1957 that Florida has been the state with the highest percentage increase in population.”

According to the report, several factors facilitated the population growth, including weather despite the storm and the absence of payment of state taxes on wages.

Since 1946, Florida’s population has grown every year, even as the nation’s population growth has fallen. But in recent years, the state has been overtaken by Nevada, whose current population is 22 times its 1946 population.

Florida isn’t the only state with a growing population. Overall, the US population is growing again after a record decline during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to recently released census data, most of the increase is due to immigration.

Today Florida ranks third with 22.2 million residents, surpassed by California with 39 million and Texas with 30 million.

Florida was the second-highest gainer state after Texas, which reported an increase of 416,754 residents. Net migration was the largest contributor to Florida’s growth, adding 444,484 people.

New York had the largest numerical and percentage annual decline in population, a decrease of 180,341 people, or -0.9%.

Of the 67 counties that make up Florida, Miami-Dade stands out with the highest number of residents, nearly three million, followed by Broward, with 1.9 million, and Palm Beach and Hillsboro, with 1.5 million each, where West Palm Beach and Tampa are located. Huh. respectively.
