On the bright side, IL has seen an increased racial, ethnic and gender diversity in the state's work-aged population. That's an increase of 0.65 percent. That brought the 2017 population estimate for IL to 12,802,023 people.

Idaho came in at No. 1, with a 2.2 percent increase to 1.7 million from July 1, 2016 to July 1, 2017.

Illinois' population loss was the worst in the country on a numerical basis, and on a percentage basis it was second from the bottom, with only West Virginia faring worse.
