Duval County’s immigrant population has grown significantly since 2010, according to new U.S. Census numbers.

More than 20,000 people resettled in Jacksonville over that period — most of them from outside the U.S.

Florida has surpassed the 20 million population mark while growing faster than California.

The Sunshine State, adding more than 1,000 people a day, is nearly up a half-million people on New York, which it surpassed a year ago to become the third most-populous state, according to U.S. Census Bureau estimates released Tuesday.

Florida, with an estimated 20,271,272 residents as of July 1, is also growing faster than a year earlier, when 803 people a day were being added to the state's head count.

As Florida's population grows at more than 2 percent annually and New York loses residents in upstate areas the Sunshine State is set to surpass the Empire State in population either this year or next.
