The population of North Dakota has hit an all-time high according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
North Dakota hit 760,077 residents in July.
That’s an increase of 4,901 from last year’s census estimate according the U.S. Census Bureau.

“We’re excited to see more people moving into North Dakota, and for good reason: Our economy is strong, our jobs are abundant and our quality of life is second to none,” Governor Doug Burgum said. 


In 2017, North Dakota’s population had gone down slightly.
That was because of of a slowdown in the state’s energy jobs.

North Dakota’s estimated 2017 population was revised down slightly to 755,176 residents from 755,393.


North Dakota remains 47th most populous state in the U.S. 

Since the last decennial census, North Dakota has been one of the nation’s fastest-growing states – estimated to have grown by nearly 13 percent since 2010.

Only four states – Colorado, Florida, Texas and Utah – are estimated to have grown by a higher percentage since 2010.

Last year’s census estimate also placed North Dakota as the fourth-youngest state, a position Iverson said he expects the state to retain this year.
