Idaho’s population growth has been growing fast – so quickly that the state had the No. 1 growth rate in the nation at 21.5 % from 2012-2022, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
Labor Economist Lisa Grigg will highlight her research findings on how Idaho’s shifting population affects K-12 enrollments in an Idaho Department of Labor webinar, Tuesday, Oct. 10.
“Idaho’s fast-growing population of Idaho doesn’t mean growth is happening evenly – either throughout the state or by age group,” Grigg said. “Uneven growth creates implications for future student enrollment and the future labor force.”
The presentation will take place Tuesday from 11 a.m. to noon (MDT) via Zoom.
