U.S. Population Grows at Lowest Rate on Record During Pandemic

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

The US population is almost not growing.

The U.S. population grew at the slowest rate on record in 2021 as slowing migration, an aging population and low birth rates were exacerbated by the Covid pandemic, U.S. Census Bureau data released Tuesday show.

The population expanded by just 0.1% or 392,665 people this year, a smaller increase than during the influenza pandemic and World War I in the early years of the last century. It’s also the first time since 1937 that the population has expanded by less than 1 million.

Washington and New York were among the regions with the biggest drop in people while Idaho, Utah and surrounding states gained the most, the data show.

    Automation will solve this problem. After 5th industrial revolution 3D printers will do construction works,Roboats will work in factories, social media will do work of postal service, drone will work for courier service and vaccum cleaner will do work of housekeepers.
    Reduction in population is good for climate change. Future generations will get high-tech world .But government should not take unskilled refugees. Because this will create economic problems.
