The Idaho Department of Labor says between 2015 and 2025, the state is expected to grow by 15 percent.
Using a new model to project these changes, the agency says the state’s pace is about three times higher than the nation’s when it comes to population.
So where is this boost coming from? The trend of older people moving to the state for retirement continues to lead the way. The department predicts the 65 and older crowd will grow by about 36 percent.
