Nevada and Idaho are the fastest growing states in the nation according to new Census data released Wednesday.
States in the western part of the U.S. took home all of the top rankings with Idaho, Nevada, Utah and Washington taking the top four slots.
Census officials said domestic migration drove the changes in Idaho and Nevada, while an excess of births over deaths played a major part in Utah’s growth.
Nevada had a population surge of 2 percent. The total U.S. population is 325.7 million.
