States in the northwest part of the US are among the fastest growing, with Idaho, Nevada, Utah and Washington taking the top four slots.

The state's year-to-year growth rate of less than 0.1 percent lagged the national growth rate of 0.72 percent. In 2017, 38.0 percent of the nation's population lived in the South and 23.8 percent lived in the West.

Overall, the USA population grew by 0.7 percent from July 1, 2016, to July 1, 2017 - to 325.7 million people.

The number of voting-age Americans grew to 252.1 million - a near 1 percent increase over the year. Vermont - the least populated state with 623,354 residents, gained 303.

New York's population count continued to benefit from new immigrants, though the state also continued to lose residents to other states.
