World Population Clock

Interesting numbers... US and World Countries

Like: Didja know?
one birth every 8 seconds
one death every 12 seconds
one new citizen every 14 seconds.
and now... US population almost 329 Million?

Sliding charts, area charts age charts,
States, Counties, Cities by density and population.

Given that pregnancy doesn't occur every time, and that some do use birth control and are infertile, I'd guess it's a heck of a lot more frequent than that (probably a lot more than a few all the time...it takes more than a minute for most).

The total fertility rate in the United States estimated for 2016 is 1.82 children per woman, which is below the replacement fertility rate of approximately 2.1. The United States Census Bureau shows a population increase of 0.75% for the twelve-month period ending in July 2012. Though high by industrialized country standards, this is below the world average annual rate of 1.1%.

If it were not for immigration our population would be in decline.

There's nothing wrong with a declining birth rate...there are more than enough people on the planet.

Given that people arenít dying off as early anymore it does present some challenges society isnít very familiar with. The easy answer is immigration , but , well, you know how thatís going these days.
