LAS VEGAS (AP) — U.S. Census Bureau estimates show Nevada is becoming older and more diverse as the state grows.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Wednesday that the state's population grew by more than 330,000 people from 2010 to 2018.
Its 12% growth rate was double the national rate.
The state added more than 149,000 people to its retirement-age population, with nearly 1 in 6 residents now age 65 or older.
The data shows the state's non-Hispanic white population has remained mostly flat since 2010.
The Hispanic and non-white populations have increased, making Nevada a majority-minority state in 2017.
According to the data, a little more than a quarter of Nevada's nearly 3 million residents were born in the state.
