The latest U.S. Census Bureau estimate shows little change in the slow growth pattern of the state. The coordinator of the State Data Center, Gary Krob, says a central Iowa county is once again the leader in growth. “Dallas County is the fastest growing county in the state of Iowa — had been for a number of years now — and at a significant pace too,” Krob says. He says it was “pretty significant” growth at 12.9 percent, with the next closest in growth being Johnson County at 6.3 percent.
