Idaho ranked 4th fastest growing state in the nation

In spite of a nationwide slowdown in the housing market Idaho remains one of the fastest growing states in the nation.  The U.S. Census reports that Idaho was the 4th fastest-growing state in the nation in the year ending July 1, 2007.

The census report shows that the fastest growing states continue to be in the west, Rocky Mountain region and the Southeast.  Texas is attracting new residents at a very rapid pace.

Nevada regained the title of the fastest growing state in the nation.  Arizona is second, Utah is third, and Idaho is fourth.

In September of 2007 USA today wrote No end in site for Idaho's growth.  The article cited Idaho's diverse economy which includes computer chips, agriculture, manufacturing, services and tourism as just a few of the reasons that idaho's economy remains so strong.

I hope the State can control the growth. Idaho is such a beautiful state I would hate to see it get plowed over to build homes.
