The number of Michigan residents has jumped to nearly 10 million, according to a report from the U.S. Census Bureau.

Since 2017, the state has seen nearly 20,000 more residents -- from 9,976,447 to 9,995,915 in 2018.

“Many states have seen fewer births and more deaths in recent years,” said Sandra Johnson, a demographer/statistician in the Population Division of the Census Bureau. “If those states are not gaining from either domestic or international migration they will experience either low population growth or outright decline.”

From last year, heavily populated states like New York saw decrease in population while California continues to see a steady increase in residents.
