Census Bureau Reports Small Increase In Ohio's Population

The U.S. Census Bureau says Ohio's population grew less than 1 percent between July 2015 and the end of 2016. Cleveland State University population expert Mark Salling says the state continues to gain international migration or immigrants from other countries, but the state's population is aging and the birthrate is declining. Immigrants are often in their child-bearing years, so more international migration could help spur Ohio's declining birthrate.
