Come January 2017, a new baby will be born in the United States every eight seconds and a person will die every 11 seconds.
And every 33 seconds, a new international immigrant – legal or otherwise – will be added to the population of the United States.
When all the numbers are added up with the combination of births, deaths and migration our country’s population will increase by one person every 17 seconds.
These number-crunching stats come from the U.S. Census Bureau’s population projections for the coming new year.
From world population to our own census data from Connecticut, the information offers a look at the makeup of our communities and how fast our population is changing.
After the ball drops in Time’s Square, the U.S. population will be 324,310,011. This represents an increase of 2,245,347, or 0.70 percent, from New Year’s Day 2016.
