Population Shifts & Dust In The Wind
How many U.S. states west of KCMO have seen their populations decrease according to the latest (July 2020) U.S. Census Bureau estimates?
This is not a trick question. I'm excluding Alaska and Hawaii only because you can't pack up your belongings in a truck and drive there easily. I am including: North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, California, Oregon, Washington. Take your time.
The answer is ONE, and it's California.
Of the remaining 16 states, which one had the smallest population growth at only 0.04% ?
The answer is Kansas.
