According to the latest census report, Arizona is now the fourth-fastest growing state with a large amount of new residents.
Between July 1, 2017 and July 1, 2018, over 122,000 people moved to Arizona. With a population growth rate of 1.7 percent that marks a 0.1 percentage point increase from last year’s figure, the state is one of the fastest growing.
Arizona ranked sixth for population growth and seventh in the number of new residents, according to the census’ 2017 annual report.
“In the game of states, people vote with their feet, and Arizona is winning,” said Governor Doug Ducey. “With our high quality of life, growing economy and abundance of new jobs, and some of the best schools in the nation, Arizona continues to prove itself as an unbeatable place to live, raise a family and retire.”
