COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Central Ohio counties are leading the state in population growth categories.

Population estimates released by the census bureau show Franklin County - home to Columbus - recorded by far the most births in the state last year, 18,200. Adjacent Delaware County had the biggest percentage growth - 2.09 percent - in Ohio in the same period.

Ohio on the whole lost almost 7,400 people to migration last year. Almost half of that loss came in Cuyahoga County, home to Cleveland.

Three-fourths of the state's counties had a net loss of residents because of people moving out of the state.

Hocking County in southeast Ohio had the biggest percentage population loss - 2.34 percent.

Ohio had more than 11.5 million residents last year.
