JACKSON, Wyo. — If you’re from Wyoming, or have at least lived in the state for several years, you’ll likely have noticed that Wyomingites pride themselves on being from the least populated state.
Being the 10th largest state in the union, and having the lowest population, means that we have a lot of space for the outdoorsy activities that most Wyomingites love. There are endless places throughout the state where it’s easy to get lost, disconnect, and reflect on the natural state of the world.
Recently, population data was released by the website, HomeSnacks, showing that once again Wyoming ranks #50 in population size. The site measured the current population of Wyoming at 581,024 residents. Vermont ranks as the second-least populated state, but with 43,289 more residents than Wyoming. Alaska, North Dakota, and South Dakota are among the five least populated states.
