We are ending the year with news that is so far removed from five/six years ago, and it bodes well for the future of this great State:
State Population Grows By More Than 11,000 People
Michigan's estimated population increased to more than 9.909 million people in 2014, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, keeping Michigan the 10th largest state in the U.S.
The estimates of state population released by the bureau Tuesday also showed the state had grown by more than 26,000 since the 2010 census when Michigan was the only state to lose population during the previous 10 years.
... six states -- Illinois, West Virginia, Connecticut, New Mexico, Alaska, and Vermont -- lost population during the year.
