America's Low Population

 The United States grew by only 0.1%, with an additional 392,665 added to the U.S. population from July 2020 to July 2021, bringing the nation’s count to 331.8 million people. 

There was a net increase of nearly 245,000 residents from international migration but only about 148,000 from new births outnumbering deaths.

In more than two dozen states, most notably Florida, deaths outnumbered births. Deaths exceeded births in Florida by more than 45,000 people.

“We have an aging population and that means fewer women in child-bearing ages,” William Frey, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution said. “We see younger people putting off having children and they’re going to have fewer children.”
