What is the population of Arizona? The U.S. Census Bureau provides population statistics. The actual census only takes place every ten years, in dates ending in a zero. In between, they often provide updated estimates.

Population of Arizona, 2010

6,392,017

AZ population growth since 2000 census: 24.6%

Population Estimate of Arizona, 2013

6,626,624

AZ population growth since 2010 census: 3.7%

Arizona ranks 15th in state population in the United States. It was 16th at the 2010 Census, and 20th at the 2000 census.

By How Many People Did Arizona's Population Grow Every Single Day?

From 2000 to 2010 the population of Arizona grew by about 346 people per day. That is a net figure, meaning it takes into account how many people left Arizona or passed away during that time. From 2010 to 2013 the population of Arizona grew by about 214 people per day.
