Ohio Population Trend Rebounds

Population trends have returned to pre-pandemic norms, according to new estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau. The Midwest’s population rebounded in 2023 due to a lower rate of outmigration and increased international migration.

Ohio is one of 11 states that lost population in 2022 but experienced gains in 2023, with 26,238 more residents. However, with 11,785,935 residents in July 2023, Ohio still trailed its April 2020 population estimate of 11,799,331. 12/27/2023
