New figures from the Census Bureau shows Massachusetts is continuing to add to its population.
 
    The latest estimate as of July 1 puts the state’s population at nearly 6.7 million, up by more than 47,000 from July, 2012.
 
    While the increase is modest, it helps maintain Massachusetts’ ranking at the 14th most populous state in the country.
 
    A review of the census data by the University of Massachusetts Donahue Institute said the state’s population growth ranks it as the fastest growing in the Northeast region for the third consecutive year since 2010.
 
    The institute said that according to the latest census estimate, Massachusetts’ annual growth percentage caught up with the U.S. average in the 2012 to 2013 period.
 
    The institute said the last time the state’s growth rate met or exceeded the national average was 1967.  (Associated Press)
