Florida's population continues to grow with older people moving to the state.

TALLAHASSEE — Florida continues to grow as it attracts people from other parts of the U.S., but that growth is projected to slow in the coming years as groups that have been moving to Florida in droves get older, according to state economists.

The Legislature۷ֱ Office of Economic and Demographic Research released a report this week that showed the state۷ֱ estimated population in April was 22,634,867, an increase of nearly 359,000 people, or 1.61%, from a year earlier.
