The latest estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau show North Dakota’s population reached an all-time high of 760,077 residents as of July 1, an increase of 4,901 from last year’s revised estimate.
“We’re excited to see more people moving into North Dakota, and for good reason: Our economy is strong, our jobs are abundant and our quality of life is second to none,” Gov. Doug Burgum said. “While this population growth affirms our state is on the right track, we still have thousands of jobs to fill, making it vitally important that we invest in workforce development and create healthy, vibrant communities to attract and retain a 21st century workforce.”
