U.S population is decreasing, says census bureau


(WEHT)-Fewer births, more deaths, and less international migration are leading to the United States population to grow slowly.

New Census Bureau population estimates show that since July of 2018 the number of people in the US has increased by .48%

Growth has slowed down since 2015 and more than 1 million people moved to the south between 2018-2019.

40% of the U.S population is now concentrated in that region.
