Updated at: 12:03 pm

The Moscow area is growing slower than all other Idaho regions of its size, according to U.S. Census Bureau Data released Thursday by the Idaho Department of Labor.

The Moscow "micropolitan" area, which encompasses Latah County, grew 0.5 percent from mid-2006 to mid-2007. Micropolitan areas are counties with "urban concentrations of 10,000 to 50,000 people."

The rate makes Moscow the 246th fastest-growing among the nation’s micropolitan areas. The area’s total population is 36,299.
