The population in Kansas remained relatively flat in 2022 even as the state continued to lose people migrating elsewhere in the United States, new census data show.
New census estimates released just before Christmas showed that Kansas lost 772 people - barely a fraction of a percentage point - from July 1, 2021, through July 1, 2022.
It's lost 667 from April 2020 to last July 1.
Eighteen states saw their population decline in 2022, compared to 15 states in 2021, the Census Bureau reported.
