U.S. States by Population 2022 (with CSV export)

When it comes to data about US Sates, the Census Bureau provides excellent, updated data but, it isn’t always in the format you need.

I recently wanted a list of states in the United States ordered by population. There are lots of resources online however, none allowed me to sort or export the data easily.

I went to the US Census Bureau website and transcribed their data for the most recent data they have available as of August 1st, 2022.
