Wake County expects population to hit 1 million

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -

Experts say Wake County's population is expected to hit 1 million this week.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported that demographic experts say Wake County adds about 60 people each day. That would mean that the population will hit 1 million on Friday.

Experts calculated that Mecklenburg County hit the 1 million mark in September 2012. Experts said Mecklenburg was adding about 70 people a day.

Wake County commissioners celebrated the growing population Monday with two cakes decorated with demographic data.
