There's a new fastest-growing state in America, according to the latest tally from the U.S. Census Bureau released Tuesday.
Kansas barely avoided the indignity of shrinking this year, but some other states didn't: big Eastern or Midwestern states, such as New York, Connecticut, Illinois and Pennsylvania - as well as economic unfortunates such as Mississippi, Wyoming and West Virginia - all lost population.
Utah saw the nation's greatest percentage population growth since previous year, with 2.03 percent. IL was the only state to lose more residents over the one-year period than West Virginia, which has been hit hard by the downturn in the coal industry.
The U.S. Census Bureau also estimates there were 15.6 births per 1,000 women of child-bearing age in the state. A years-long oil boom that had brought new move-ins to the state ended abruptly the last year-plus as declining oil prices killed numerous new jobs.
Texas was the fastest-growing state in terms of raw numbers, adding 432,957 people year-over-year and reaching a total population of 27.9 million.

California and Florida attracted more immigrants, while California and Texas had higher natural gains.
"You saw a slowdown in the oil industry in the past year as well as the agricultural industry", said Iverson, who estimated the state's out-migration at 4,684 people.
A report from the CFO's office in 2014, when D.C. first logged a significant drop in the growth rate, noted a "sharp decline in net domestic inmigration"-fewer Americans moving to the city, or more leaving it". In 2010, NY lost two U.S. House - from 29 to 27 - because other states grew more quickly. Idaho's Hispanic population rose from 11 percent to 12 percent between 2010 and 2015, the Census said.
