Pandemic Drives Population Growth to Record Low…

Sharing is Caring!

America’s population grew at the lowest rate on record this year, according to Census Bureau figures released Tuesday that show how the pandemic is changing the country’s demographic contours.

The United States added just 393,000 people in the year that ended July 1, including 148,000 more births than deaths, a surplus that has long supplied much of the nation’s growth. The other component—which measures movement to and from abroad—grew by 245,000. It was the first year in which growth from births exceeding deaths fell below net arrivals from abroad, according to the bureau.
