It seems to me that there's a good chance that Michigan's population exceeds 10 million as of now (Jan 2019), since it allegedly was less than 5000 people short in July 2018 and allegedly gained over 75,000 people from July 2017 to July 2018.

Very likely, yes. I was going to say I'd wait for the numbers to be updated in Wikipedia before worrying about it, but it was an easy fix, so I went ahead and made it now.
