North Dakota population tops record 723,000

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's population has climbed well beyond a record 700,000 in the latest estimate by the Census Bureau.

The estimate of 723,393 residents is more than 22,000 over the estimate from a year ago and a new high mark for the state.

Last year's estimated population of just under 700,000 topped the state's previous record count set in 1930.

In the early 2000s, North Dakota was one of only a few states with a declining population. The state began to reverse that trend in 2004 because of the oil boom and the population has grown every year since.
