INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana’s state population reached a record 9.8 million in 2017, the first year of a new census.
But the numbers have come in at a steeply steep price, with an estimated $4.5 billion in new taxes and fees that the state has yet to collect.
Indy’s 2017 census covered 7.9 million people.
The total tax revenue for the state was $8.4 billion, with the average homeowner paying $6,800 in property taxes.
The average homeowner paid $5,600 in other taxes.
Indiana is among the wealthiest states in the country, with a median household income of $76,945.
In 2017, average income for the average household was $72,084.
But the state’s budget is struggling.
The state’s tax collections for 2017 were $7.5 million below what was needed to balance the state budget for the full year.
Despite the massive new tax burden, Indiana’s population grew in 2017 by an estimated 2.9% compared to 2016.
This year, the state is still projected to see an increase in its population of 3.1%.
The state’s population is expected to reach 9.1 million in 2020.
The census includes people who are not currently in the state, but who live in the region or state.
The total number of census-eligible households in the United States is estimated to be between 15 million and 17 million people, which includes approximately 3 million people living in Indiana and 2 million people who live elsewhere in the U.S. According to the Census Bureau, the United Kingdom is the world’s third-largest economy and its population is about 1.6 billion people.
