In total, the bureau found that more than 1,300,000 people have migrated to Texas since 2010, and more than 500,000 of them came from other countries. And in the past six years, 126,000 more people were born than died in the state. It remains the second most populous state, after California, in the country.
While Texas has attracted the most newcomers in the past year, its population isn't growing as fast as other states in the country. Utah, Nevada, Idaho, Florida, and Washington grew by the largest percent in 2016.
