Alaska’s population grew by nearly 5 percent in the past year, as the state continued to recover from an oil spill.
The state’s population is now at a record high of 3.1 million, up from 3.07 million in 2010, and is projected to grow by a similar amount this year, according to a new report from the state’s Department of Natural Resources.
The department says the population of Alaska’s Alaskan communities is now 1.4 million.
That’s up from 1.2 million in the year ending in April 2018, but still below the population in the state as a whole.
According to the department, the Alaska population in 2018 is projected at 1.6 million.
The population of the state is projected now to be 2.8 million, which is the highest since 2005.
That’s up slightly from 2.9 million in 2018, when the state population was 1.7 million.
The population growth in the U.S. has been dramatic, with the U, U.K. and Canada adding populations at rates much greater than Alaska, said Tom Schatz, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution.
Schatz said the state has been on the rise, but that this is not necessarily the case everywhere.
“Alaska has been the poster child for population growth, and it’s been really slow to catch up,” Schatz told CBC News.
“The Alaska population has been growing very slowly, and this is partly due to the economic downturn,” he said.
Schatz said that the state and the nation have become much more dependent on oil, particularly in the last two decades.
“We have this whole infrastructure and a lot of infrastructure in Alaska.
The last thing that we need is another oil spill,” Schatsatz said.
Alaska’s population, which now stands at 1,095,853, is down from 1,100,944, in 2010.
It’s also down from a peak of 2.3 million in 1996.
