Wyoming population is continuing to grow, increasing by one percent in 2013. That’s according to a new report by the Department of Information and Administration. Senior economist Amy Bittner says migration to cities in the energy-rich central part of the state accounted for most of the growth.
“Several of those towns at the top of the list are in the central part of Wyoming,” she says. “You have Bar Nunn, you have Mills, which is also outside Casper, and then you have Douglas. You know, that’s due to the economic activity with the energy industry.”
