324,310,011 Americans on first day of new year

As the nation prepared to ring in a new year, the U.S. Census Bureau on Dec. 28 projected the U.S. population would be 324,310,011 on Jan. 1, 2017. 

This represented an increase of 2,245,347, or 0.70 of a percent, from New Year’s Day 2016. 

(The Census Bureau estimated Union County’s population, as of July 1, 2015, was 17,408. The county’s population, as shown in the 2010 census, was 17,808. The statistics were posted on the Census Bureau’s website.)

Since Census Day on April 1, 2010, the population had grown by 15,564,473, or 5.04 percent.

In January 2017, the United States is expected to experience one birth every 8 seconds and one death every 11 seconds. 

Meanwhile, net international migration is expected to add one person to the U.S. population every 33 seconds. 

The combination of births, deaths and net international migration will increase the U.S. population by one person every 17 seconds.

The projected world population on Jan. 1, 2017, was 7,362,350,168, an increase of 77,849,375, or 1.07 percent, from New Year’s Day 2016. 

During January 2017, 4.3 births and 1.8 deaths are expected worldwide every second.
