The U.S. Census Bureau estimated that Texas should have reached a population milestone on April 3, 2012.

According to the Business Journals’ On the Numbers report, a state reaches a milestone when its population ends in at least four zeros, and Texas was expected to have 26,030,000 residents as of April 3.

The estimated population of Texas was 26.027 million as of April 1, up 881,500 from the official Census Bureau count of 25.146 million in 2010. The state still remains No. 2 in population size, California, remains No. 1 with 37.955 million residents.

California added 701,337 residents since 2010. Of the other top 10 states ranked by total population — including New York, Florida, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Georgia, Michigan and North Carolina — none grew by more than 400,000 people. Michigan lost 220,000 residents.

Other states expected to reach population milestones this month include New Mexico, with 2.1 million people; Washington, with 6.9 million; North Carolina, with 9,760,000; Florida, with 19.24 million; Oklahoma with 3.82 million; Tennessee, with 6.45 million; Illinois, with 12.9 million; and Colorado, with 5.18 million.
