Idaho's main cities grow

BOISE – Idaho’s population grew 1 percent from 2012 to 2013, but a decrease in job activity caused the state’s larger cities to lose residents or not grow as fast, according to state labor officials.

Idaho’s population increased by more than 16,500 during that time frame, the Idaho State Journal reported, with most of the growth taking place in the state’s 10 largest cities.

Idaho Department of Labor regional economist Dan Cravens said the exception was Pocatello – the state’s fifth-largest city – which lost nearly 400 people during the same time frame. Chubbuck and Blackfoot, also in southeastern Idaho, lost residents, but on a smaller scale.
