Iowa population continues slow growth

Posted: Updated:
DES MOINES (AP) - Newly released figures from the U.S. Census Bureau show Iowa continues a trend of slow population increase.

The state has an estimated population of 3,090,416 as of July 1. That's an increase of 15,377 -- about a half a percent increase since July 2012.

The state's population is up about 1.4 percent from the 2010 census.

Gary Krob, coordinator of the State Data Center Program which keeps track of Iowa's census figures, says Iowa has seen 26 straight years of population increase.

The state ranks 30th in total population and is 32nd in the nation in the percentage of population increase from 2010 to 2013.

Nebraska has grown faster, showing a 2.3 percent increase from 2010 to 2013 and a 0.70 percent increase in a year.
