New Mexico's population outflow continues, according to Census -- Albuquerque Business First

New Mexico saw another decline in its population over the last year, according to state population estimates released Tuesday by the U.S. Census Bureau.

New Mexico's overall population declined by 458 people from July 1, 2014, to July 1, 2015, or .02 percent, the Census Bureau reported.

New Mexico's net population loss is startling when compared to neighboring states, all of which land in the top 10 for growth in the Census study. -- 12/23/2015
