Dallas County again leads Iowa in population hike

Posted: Updated:

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Dallas County has again led Iowa in population growth.

U.S. Census Bureau says in estimates being released Thursday that the suburban Des Moines county grew to more than 74,600 residents by July 1 last year. That's an increase of 3.5 percent over the preceding 12 months. The county population has jumped nearly 13 percent since the 2010 U.S. Census.

Eight of Iowa's nine metropolitan areas had population increases in the latest estimates while rural counties had population declines.

The bureau estimates that Iowa's population in 2013 was nearly 3.1 million.
