New England's Growth Rate Trails Nation's

The New England region's population growth rate continues to drop below that of the nation as a whole, measuring at a rate of just 0.2 percent between July 2005 and July 2006. This compares with a national growth rate of about 1 percent.

"New England's population rose from 14.24 million to 14.27 million, while the nation went from 296.4 million people to 299.4 million."

"New England's population growth has long trailed the nation's, as more people have headed toward the Southwest and other regions that offer warmer climates, lower living costs and more plentiful jobs."

"Annual population growth averaged 1.3 percent nationwide over the past half-century, compared with 0.8 percent for New England, according to an October report by the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston's New England Public Policy Center."
