2018 U.S. & World Population

.. Welcome to 2018 .. how the U.S. and world are changing …

The Census Bureau estimates the U.S. population is 326,971,407 as of January 1, 2018. This represents an increase of 2,314,238, or 0.71 percent, from New Year’s Day 2017. Since Census Day (April 1) 2010, the population has grown by 18,225,587, or 5.90 percent.

In January 2018, the U.S. is expected to experience one birth every 8 seconds and one death every 10 seconds. Meanwhile, net international migration is expected to add one person to the U.S. population every 29 seconds. The combination of births, deaths and net international migration will increase the U.S. population by one person every 18 seconds.

The world population on January 1, 2018 is estimated to be 7,444,443,881. The world has experienced a population increase of 78,521,283, or 1.07 percent, from New Year’s Day 2017. During January 2018, 4.3 births and 1.8 deaths are expected worldwide every second.

How the U.S. Population is Changing
The following graphic shows how the population of the U.S. has changed from 2010 to 2017 and how the population might change 2018 through 2020. Click graphic for large view. The population is as of July 1 for each year. The components of change (birth, deaths and migration) are for the period July 1 through June 30 for that year.

Population for each year is computed by the population identity equation:
  P[t]=P[t-1] + B[t,t-1] -D[t,t-1] + M[t,t-1]
Viewing the larger image, see how each of the components of change are impacting the total population and population change.

Characteristics of the U.S. Population & Housing

… examining demographic-economic characteristics and patterns of the United States … the United States median household income was $51,371 in 2012 and $53,657 in 2014 — a change of $2,286 (4.5%). These are the most recent estimates and based on the American Community Survey (ACS). What about other attributes? The population who spoke a language other than English “not very well” in 2012 was approximately 25 million — that number increased by approximately 500 thousand between 2012 and 2014 — an example of other subject matter. The table and data provided in this section provides much more detail. This section can be a handy reference. Bookmark the related full Web page.

ACS provides annual data. Data for 2012 and 2014 are used here as 1) the 2014 data are the most recent and 2) comparing change over two years might provide improved insights as compared to a 1-year change.

There are many statistical programs that provide wide-ranging measures of U.S. demographic-economic attributes. Among the many important features of the ACS data is this unique feature: the ACS data provides largely the same scope of subject matter at the national level down to the block group level. Block groups cover the U.S. wall-to-wall with detailed geographic granularity (217,000 areas). For example, compare the U.S. ACS 2012 or 2014 5-year estimates

The Census 2010 population of the United States was 308,745,538. The table shown below provides updated demographics developed by ProximityOne using data from ACS. For areas of 65,000 population or more, ACS 1-year estimates are tabulated, as shown in this table. For smaller population areas (and for all areas), ACS 5-year estimates are also tabulated. All ACS data are estimates and subject to errors of estimation and other errors. See more about comparing these data over time.
