Robert Spendlove explains current population trends and their relationship to regional economic growth.

Feb 15, 2017

The United States population grew at a rate of 0.7 percent from 2015 to 2016, representing an addition of 2.2 million people. The Western region of the nation saw the most growth, while the Northeast experienced the slowest increase. While some expansion can be attributed to natural increase, many areas are experiencing a population surge due to in-migration.

Watch this month’s Economic Video Update with Robert Spendlove, Economic and Public Policy Officer for Zions Bank, as he explains current population trends and their relationship to regional economic growth.
