Census: Texas Leads Nation In Population Growth

The U.S. Census Bureau has spent much of the past year defending itself against allegations that its duties have been overtaken by politics. With a failed attempt by the Trump administration to add a citizenship question, the hiring of three political appointees with limited experience to top positions, a sped-up schedule and a directive from President Donald Trump to exclude undocumented residents from the process of redrawing congressional districts, the 2020 census has descended into a high-stakes partisan battle.

The latest census numbers say Texas topped the nation in population growth in 2020.  More people packed up and moved to Florida.  But the net population of Texas grew more, due to a combination of people moving here and new births.  Economists say people move here for job opportunities and affordable housing, and the state economy benefits from their arrival.
