North Dakota Has Migration Increase in 2013

Posted: Updated:

You can see it almost everywhere you go. North Dakota's population is on the rise. The Census Bureau shows just how much the state has grown in the past year.

The newest report says 18,000 people moved to North Dakota in 2013. That's the highest percentage growth in the country, and it also ranks eighth in sheer numbers.

"What's most dramatic about it is when we compare to where we were ten years ago. We had out migration, we had significant numbers of people leaving each year. It's been a dramatic turnaround. We've gone from fiftieth to first in terms of migration," says Kevin Iverson, N.D.  Census Office.

Iverson says he expects the growth to continue this year.
