Description

The bursting housing bubble squelched expansion in some of the nation’s fastest-growing states in the year that ended July 1, according to an analysis of census figures released Wednesday. Nevada regained the title of fastest growing, from Arizona, but both states expanded more slowly than they did the year before. Nevada’s annual growth, like Florida’s, was its lowest since the decade began. Wyoming bumped Florida from the list of the top 10 fastest-growing states. Only 35,000 Americans moved to Florida from elsewhere in the United States, compared with nearly five times as many the year before. Michigan and Rhode Island registered their second consecutive annual losses in population. But Louisiana — which declined by more than 250,000 in the year that ended July 1, 2006, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina — recorded a gain of nearly 50,000 in the latest year.
