Nation & State Population Estimates

The U.S. Census Bureau released today estimates of the total population as of July 1, 2023, at the nation and state levels. Population estimates are calculated using administrative records to estimate components of population change such as births, deaths, and migration.

The nation showed a modest growth of 1.6 million (+0.5%) from 2022 to 2023. During that time, Pennsylvania experienced a slight loss of just over 10,000 (-0.1%) which was in line with the Northeast region overall (-0.1%). Pennsylvania was one of 8 states to lose population during this time. As of July 1, 2023, Pennsylvania continued to rank 5th highest among states based on total population.
