They say everything is bigger in Texas. Recent data from the U.S. Census Bureau underscored this ideal by pointing out that Texas experienced the largest numeric growth in population from 2015-2016. Breaking down the numbers, the population increased by 432,957 individuals in the Lone Star State during that period. Coming in second was Florida, which saw a population influx of 367,525.
But when it came to growth relative to population size, Texas came in 10th place. Utah, in fact, took first place in that metric. Nor was the Texas growth unique to the region. Ben Bolender with the Census Bureau indicated that states in the south and west, overall, continued to lead in population growth.
