Population Growth Remains Below Historical Norm

After falling sharply from 2006 through 2009 due to the long and deep economic recession and the implementation of the employer sanctions law, numeric population gains in Arizona were largely steady in 2010 and 2011 at very low levels. A rebound began in 2012, though numeric gains remains historically low. This chart displays the annual population estimates of the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Census Bureau and the Arizona Department of Administration’s Office of Employment and Population Statistics.
