Demographics and Income in Ohio
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.
