Texas leads nation in population growth

Houston Chronicle:
Texas added more new residents than any other state between July 2015 and July 2016, in a year when the country overall grew at near-historically low rates, according to U.S. Census estimates released Tuesday.

Texas brought in 432,957 net new people, far more than California, Florida, and Washington, the next fastest-gaining states. Between 2010 and 2016, Texas has grown at a faster rate than any state save the much-smaller North Dakota.
The biggest contributor to that growth within the US was California. Immigrants from other countries were the largest source of growth.

Texas added 21,000 new jobs in November and the unemployment rate dipped to 4.6 percent.
