The Hawkeye State is apparently losing residents for the first time since the 1980s. A new report from the U-S Census Bureau says Iowa lost more than 31-hundred people between April of last year and July of this year. That puts the state’s latest tally at two-million-923-thousand. The drop over the past year represents about one-tenth of one-percent of the state’s total. It’s the first time Iowa’s numbers have fallen since 1987. All of Iowa’s border states gained in population in the latest report and only three other states in the nation lost numbers: West Virginia, North Dakota and Louisiana.
