U.S. & World Population, 2020

.. changing demographics .. the U.S. population stands 330,222,422 on January 1, 2020 .. an increase of 1,991,085, 0.61%, from a year ago. The April 1, 2010 Census population was 308,758,105.


 
In January 2020, the United States experiences one birth every eight seconds and one death every 11 seconds.

.. the net international migration adds one person to the U.S. population every 34 seconds. The combination of births, deaths and net international migration will increase the U.S. population by one person every 19 seconds.

The projected world population on January 1, 2020, is 7,621,018,958, an increase of 77,684,873, or 1.03%, from a year earlier. During January 2020, 4.3 births and 1.9 deaths are expected worldwide every second.

Kickoff of Census-Sourced Vintage 2019 Population Estimates Program
Starting in December of each year, the Census Bureau develops official population estimates for July of that year. In 2020, the Bureau will progressively release population estimates with greater subject matter detail for more detailed subnational geography. These model-based estimates will be completed in June 2020 for incorporated places.

The July 2019 estimates for the U.S. and states were just released in December 2019. These estimates reflect that the natural Increase dropped below 1 million for the first time in decades due to fewer births and more deaths.

The July 1, 2019, U.S. population estimate is 328,239,523, growing by 0.5% between 2018 and 2019, or 1,552,022 people. Annual growth peaked at 0.73% this decade in the period between 2014 and 2015. The growth between 2018 and 2019 is a continuation of a multiyear slowdown since that period. More detail on U.S. and state trends will be reviewed in a subsequent post.

Future of Indonesia: Demographic Trends

Indonesia, the world’s fourth most populous country … the population of Indonesia is projected to change from 243.4 million in 2010 to 300.2 million in 2050. How will Indonesia age-cohort patterns in 2010 compare to those projected for 2050? How do these patterns compare with those of the United States?

This section illustrates use of population pyramids to examine age by gender demographic patterns for Indonesia as of 2010 and 2050. See related Web section. Similar population pyramids can be developed for any country. Population pyramids help us visualize and more easily understand age-gender structure — and how it is changing over time.

Indonesia Demographic Dynamics
The age and gender structure of a population is one of its most important and formative features, because nearly all demographic characteristics and processes vary by age and gender. Age and gender composition is also revealing in that it reflects those demographic characteristics and processes. Population pyramid chart graphics can help us visualize and more easily understand age-gender structure — and how it is changing over time.

Population pyramids for 2010 and 2050 are shown below for Indonesia with associated popualtion by age-gender tabular data. Click graphic for larger view of supplemental Web page.

A top-heavy pyramid suggests negative population growth that might be due to many factors, including high death rates, low birthrates and increased emigration. A bottom-heavy pyramid suggests high birthrates, falling or stable death rates and potential for rapid population growth.

The population pyramid shows a male population bar chart (left side of pyramid, blue) symmetrically with a female population bar chart (right side of pyramid, light red). Each bar shows the population by 5-year age group, 0-4 years to 80-84 years and 85 years and over.
