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 past year, according to the census bureau. But Connecticut attracted some 17,000 people from other countries, a little more than a third of the number for MA.

Pennsylvania remains behind California, Texas, Florida and NY in total population.

Pennsylvania has seen a population growth of 18,400 people over the past few years.

The figures released Wednesday showed the US population grew 0.72 percent to 325.7 million.

California, Texas, Florida, New York and Pennsylvania remain the top five most populous states. IL also experienced a natural increase in population, meaning the number of births over deaths.

Over the past year, Idaho became the fastest-growing state in the U.S., according to national and state population estimates that were released Wednesday by the U.S. Census Bureau.

From July 2016 to July 2017, almost 115,000 Illinoisans left for other states on net, according to the Census data.

"Domestic migration drove change in the two fastest-growing states - Idaho and Nevada - while an excess of births over deaths played a major part in the growth of the third fastest-growing state, Utah", Luke Rogers, chief of the Population Estimates Branch, said in a press release. In 2017, 38.0 percent of the nation's population lived in the South and 23.8 percent lived in the West. Vermont - the least populated state with 623,354 residents, gained 303.

On the bright side, IL has seen an increased racial, ethnic and gender diversity in the state's work-aged population.

The estimates for Puerto Rico are as of July 1, 2017, and therefore do not reflect the effects of Hurricanes Irma and Maria in September 2017.

Danbury's population of 84,922 people posted the fastest growth, gaining 335 residents between 2015 and 2016, and growing by 5.1 percent since 2010.

ME grew 4 percent, Rhode Island by 2 percent, and CT and Vermont basically broke even.

However, net global migration decreased 1.8 percent - the first drop since 2012 to 2013.
