January 2020. While 2020 should be a good year for the economy, there are many possible speed bumps. Uncertainty is a top consideration. Risk and opportunities will vary widely by sector and region. Regional economies will change at radically different paces. Success and growth will require an understanding of the "big picture" as well as what's happening at the neighborhood level.
How & Why State Population is Changing, 2010-2019
The following graphic shows patterns of how and why state population is changing, 2010 to 2019. States are labeled with population percent change from 2010 to 2019. Color patterns are shown in the inset legend. States experiencing population growth are shown as blue (change due mainly to net migration) and green (change due mainly to natural increase). States experiencing population loss are shown as red (change due mainly to net migration) and orange (change due mainly to natural increase; loss). Use the associated GIS project to examine different years or subject matter items. Click graphic for larger view; expand browser window for best quality view.

State by State Dynamic Reports
State of the State reports and information resources provide insights into demographic, economic & business characteristics for the U.S. and individual states. Data are updated daily/weekly on trends, what's changing where & when and assessing what's ahead. Disparate Federal statistical data are presented in an organized, consumable manner. Those data are supplemented by current estimates and projections developed by ProximityOne.
A unique resource to help determine how change might affect you, it is an indispensable resource for investors, leaders, policymakers, researchers and decision-makers. Click on a link in the scroll section at right to view the U.S. or selected state.
Part of a multi-dimensional information resource, the reports are derived from the Situation & Outlook (S&O) database, updated daily. ProximityOne uses the historical S&O database to develop current demographic-economic estimate and projections.
Reports shown via links to the right are illustrative reports. Not all sections are populated. Subscribe to receive the full report. Subscribers have access to the S&O database and can access data in spreadsheet and other formats enabling comparative analysis.

Natural change is the difference between births and deaths for an area. Often natural change is positive which means that there are more births that deaths for a year or period. This positive natural change is referred to as natural increase. Examples of natural increase exist across the U.S.
The opposite of natural increase, natural decrease, occurs where there are more deaths than births resulting in population decrease. Areas with aging populations often have natural decrease.
Migration is the movement of people from one area to another. It is often expressed as net migration, which is the difference between how many people move into and out of an area. When net migration is positive, a population has more people moving in than out. Migration is split into domestic migration and international migration.
Domestic migration refers to people moving between areas within the U.S., and is often one of the largest contributors to population change.
International migration refers to people moving into and out of the U.S., and consists of a diverse group of people such as foreign-born immigrants from many countries around the world, members of the U.S. Armed Forces, and U.S. citizens working abroad.
Adding the net domestic and net international migration yields the net migration.
Components of Change
Analyzing the components of change is an enlightening way to understand how the U.S. population is shifting over time. Looking at areas across the country, we can identify groups of areas that grow (or decline) mainly due to migration and others that grow due to natural increase.

ProximityOne develops geodemographic-economic data and analytical tools and helps organizations knit together and use diverse data in a decision-making and analytical framework. We develop custom demographic/economic estimates and projections, develop geographic and geocoded address files, and assist with impact and geospatial analyses. Wide-ranging organizations use our tools (software, data, methodologies) to analyze their own data integrated with other data. Follow ProximityOne on Twitter at www.twitter.com/proximityone.
