The United States claimed 100 million people in 1915 but didn’t reach 200 million until 1967. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) projects that the U.S. population will increase from 342 million people in 2024 to 383 million people in 2054 and much less that was estimated years ago that estimates a population of 400 million.

Since 1967, the American population has undergone several demographic changes as the moves out of the Northeast and Midwest into the West and the South, and the fast growth of American suburbs – between 1970 and 2000, the percentage of the total population living in suburbs grew from 38 percent to 50 percent.

Despite the larger population, however, there are fewer large households in the United States. In 1970, less than 18 percent of households consisted of just one person. Over the next 30 years, until the turn of the century and the beginning of the 2000s, one-person households increased to nearly 26 percent of the total population.

The change is fueled by both young and old; young people may delay getting married and choose to live on their own, while older people who are divorced or widowed also live alone rather than remarry. Meanwhile, married-couple households have dropped from nearly 75 percent in 1967 to 50 percent these days, and non-family households have increased from 17 percent to 33 percent.

Some important points it would be good to remember in relation to the population that lived in the United States between the 70’s and 90’s and this population in recent years and after the turn of the century. Some relevant facts are that more women are in the workforce and better-educated Americans. About Immigration, there were 9.7 million foreign-born people in the country in 1967 while this number in 2004 was 34.3 million or 12 percent of the total population of the U.S at this time.representation american flag

It is certainly contributing to the increasing racial and ethnic diversity of the U.S. population. The Population Reference Bureau noted in its report that traditional “gateway” states such as New Jersey, New York, California, Florida and Texas have long been a “first stop” for immigrants. By now, a considerable number of immigrants go directly to relatives in destinations such as North Carolina, Nevada, and Georgia for example.

Although the majority of immigrants continues to be Mexican, it is good to mention that there are over 1 million Brazilians in the U.S territory. Almost 200 thousand live in New York state. The states with the largest population of Brazilians in the United States, New York, Florida, Massachetts, California and Texas are in the Top 5, in order.

The size of the U.S. population, as well as its age and sex composition, has significant implications for the economy and the federal budget. For example, the number of people ages 25 to 54 affects the number of people employed, and the number of people age 65 or older affects the number of Social Security and Medicare beneficiaries.
