Census Bureau Projects 315 Million U.S. Population Today

The new year begins with the American population having grown by 2.272,462 people since one year earlier, the Commerce Department agency reported.

The U.S. Census Bureau projects the U.S. population on Jan. 1, 2013, will be 315,091,138 people, an increase of 2,272,462, or 0.73 percent, from New Year's Day 2012 and an increase of 6,343,630 since the most recent Census Day (April 1, 2010).

  • One birth every 8 seconds
