PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - The U.S. Census says Maine’s most populous county was also its fastest growing for the year that began on July 1, 2013.

Cumberland County grew more than half a percent in that time. The county has about 280,000 residents and includes Portland, the largest city in the state. York, Knox, Waldo and Kennebec counties followed Cumberland as the fastest-growing in Maine.

Cumberland added 1,931 people during the period. York, the state’s second-most populous county, added 1,247 people. Knox, Waldo and Kennebec all added less than 100 residents between July 1, 2013, and July 1, 2014.
