Ind. population growth continues to lag behind U.S.

Indianapolis — New population estimates show Indiana's population continues growing at a slower rate than the national average, but is increasing faster than its four neighboring states.

Census Bureau estimates released Monday show Indiana's population grew by about 33,000 people from 2012 to 2013, giving it a 0.51 percent growth rate. Nationally, the population is estimated to have risen by 0.7 percent over those two years.

Indiana's population growth rate between 2012 and 2013 was better than the neighboring states of Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan and Ohio.

Kentucky's growth rate was the highest of those four at 0.35 percent.

The Census Bureau says North Dakota, Utah, Colorado and Texas had the nation's fastest growth rates in 2013.

Indiana's estimated 6.57 million residents gave it the nation's 16th-largest population in 2013.
