U.S. Census Bureau estimates show Nevada is becoming older and more diverse as the state grows.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Wednesday that the state's population grew by more than 330,000 people from 2010 to 2018.

Its 12% growth rate was double the national rate.

The state added more than 149,000 people to its retirement-age population, with nearly 1 in 6 residents now age 65 or older.

The data shows the state's non-Hispanic white population has remained mostly flat since 2010.

The Hispanic and non-white populations have increased, making Nevada a majority-minority state in 2017.

According to the data, a little more than a quarter of Nevada's nearly 3 million residents were born in the state.
