The New Year is already a month gone, and with it came the announcement that Arizona is the fastest growing state in the United States. While Cochise County is not the fastest growing county in Arizona, it is experiencing its share of growth. Per Census data and Arizona Department of Economic Development population projections the County had a population of 117,755 people in 2000 and the population is estimated to be 135,050 in 2006 and increase of 17,295 people or almost 15%. Because of the attractive employment center represented by Fort Huachuca, proximity to Tucson and a pleasant climate that attracts retirees, people will continue to choose Cochise County for their new home.
