Maricopa County is the country’s fastest growing county.

Between 2017 and 2018, the county added more than 81,000 residents. That brings Maricopa County’s population up to more than 4.4 million, which makes it the fourth most populous county in the U.S.

Anubhav Bagley, regional analytics director for the Maricopa Association of Governments, joined The Show to talk more about this.
