Minnesota’s population growth is stalling. Population estimates released yesterday show the number of people living in Minnesota grew by about 57-hundred between July 2021 and July 2022. The increase is an improvement over the previous year’s net growth of 16-hundred, but falls far short of typical annual growth of about 35-thousand people. Minnesota Chamber of Commerce officials say the downward trend in population growth “appears to be accelerating.” One of the biggest factors affecting population growth is the number of people leaving the state.
