Demographics and Income in Ohio

(PDF PDF icon)

Ohio’s population growth has consistently lagged the United States’ since 1970. For much of the 1970s and 1980s, U.S. population growth hovered around 1%, but Ohio showed essentially no net growth. The growth-rate gap narrowed in the latter half of the 1980s, when Ohio enjoyed a short-lived resurgence in population growth, but it widened throughout the 1990s. As of 2004, this gap was roughly 3/4 percentage point.
