Since the United States census of 1900 twelve states have made and published enumerations of population-namely, Michigan in 1904, and Iowa, Kansas, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Wisconsin and Wyoming in 1905. A federal census was taken in the new State of Oklahoma in 1907. Results of these censuses were:

Iowa's population has been stationary for a decade and is now slightly decreasing. The four years' growth of Michigan, 1900 to 1904, shows a rate of only 4 per cent, the rural population having increased only 1.5 per cent and the cities 8 per cent, the latter containing a little more than half the people of the state. The rate of increase for the six years 1894 to 1900 was 8 per cent.
Wisconsin has increased in population 8 per cent-a rate slightly greater than the rate between 1895 and 1900, which was 7 per cent. its ruial element increased 6 per cent, and its cities of over one thousand inhabitants, which, taken collectively, constitute 44 per cent of the population, increased 10 per cent. Minnesota increased at a still more rapid rate-13 per cent. Its rate of growth from 1900 to 1905 was even more rapid than in the preceding five-year period, which was 11 per cent. The rural element, which constitutes 55 per cent of the entire population, increased 8 per cent between 1900 and 1905, and the cities 20 per cent.
South Dakota increased at the same rate as Minnesota-13 per cent-a rate much less than that of the preceding five years- namely, 21 per cent. The rural population, which comprised four-fifths of the total population in 1905, increased 10 per cent, and the urban element 27 per cent.
Of all the states taking censuses, North Dakota had the most rapid growth, its per cent of increase in the five years being 37. The rural element, about five-sixths of the whole population, gained 35 per cent, and the urban element 45 per cent.
Kansas, which from 1895 to 1900 gained 10 per cent in population, made a gain of only 5 per cent between 1900 and 1905. This gain was entirely in the cities, which formed a little more than one-third of the population. They increased at the rate of 25 per cent, while the rural districts lost nearly 10,000 inhabitants, or at the rate of 1 per cent.
For a frontier state, Wyoming is having very slow growth. Between 1890 and 1900 it added only 31,826 to its population, or at the rate of 49 per cent.
New York increased in the five years at the rate of 11 per cent. As there was no state census in 1895, this can only be compared with the decennial increase from 1890 to 1900, which was 21 per cent, showing the rate to be maintained. Practically all of this increase was in the cities and towns, since the rural population increased only 0.6 per cent, while the towns and cities of over 1,000 inhabitants gained 14 per cent. New Jersey showed a good rate of growth-14 per cent-slightly greater than in the five years from 1895 to 1900, which was 13 per cent. This growth was mainly in the cities and towns, which contain more than three-fourths of the entire population. The urban growth was at the rate of 16 per cent, and the rural element 7 per cent only. Massachusetts increased only 7 per cent between 1900 and 1905, as compared with 12 per cent in the preceding five-year period. Rhode Island made the notable increase of 14 per cent, which may be compared with the increase in the preceding five years (1805 to 1900) of 11 per cent.
