Wyoming / Sheridan County Demographics
The U.S. Census Bureau and the Wyoming’s Economic Analysis Division have just updated their population statistics for the country, states, and counties.
As Wyoming’s chief state economist explains, there are two components for population change – natural increases (births less deaths) and net migration (in-migration less outmigration).
The July 2015 estimated population for the United States is now 321 million (up 0.8% from last year). And the new population estimate for Wyoming is 586,107 (up 0.3%). [more]
