U.S. population expected to decline after 2080; low fertility a cause, Census Bureau says

Catholic News Agency, Daniel Payne:

The U.S. population will peak later this century before experiencing a decline by 2100, the U.S. Census Bureau said this week, with low fertility numbers partly explaining the projected decrease.

The bureau said in a press release on Thursday that the country’s population “is projected to reach a high of nearly 370 million in 2080 before edging downward to 366 million in 2100.” Report is here.
