Estimates: Few Ohio counties had population growth

Posted: Updated:

CINCINNATI (AP) - New U.S. Census Bureau estimates indicate that less than a quarter of Ohio's 88 counties have had population increases since the 2010 census.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports demographic and economic analysts say those estimates indicate a longtime trend of domestic migration shifting population from the Midwest and Northeast to the South and West doesn't appear to be changing.

The newspaper says the estimates show some counties with increases have been helped by factors including an influx of immigrants and having more births than deaths.

The estimates show 56% of the immigrants to Ohio between 2010 and 2012 live in Cuyahoga, Franklin and Hamilton counties.

The newspaper reports projections show immigrants and their American-born children account for most of the current U.S. population growth.
