South Carolina is now one of the fastest growing states in the nation. It’s population just surpassed that of Alabama’s, making the Palmetto State the nation’s 23rd largest, and continues to rise at an ever increasing rate.
New Census data indicate that just four states saw greater domestic migration — more people moving in from other states than moving out — from July 1st, 2014 through July 1st, 2015;
1. Florida 202,510
2. Texas 170,103
3. Colorado 54,459
4. Arizona 45,934
5. South Carolina 45,582
In South Carolina, about four-fifths of the total population growth came directly from peoplemoving to the state, while the rest came from new births.
Most states, on average, saw negative domestic migration over the past year, especially Northeastern and Midwestern states.
Growth certainly has both pros and cons, but if you’re counting popularity, many consider South Carolina to be at the top.
