The population was estimated at 258,120,000 in July 1, 1993. The Population of United States in July 1, 2003 was estimated at 290,809,000. Last year 2013, the United States Population was 316,148,990 on July 4th.
See data source from http://www.census.gov/popclock/
Let’s do a simple math:
From 2003 to 2013, population increased 316,148,990 – 290,809,000 = 25,339,990. So 10 year increase rate = 8.71%, average annually increase rate = 0.00839%.
If keep this rate, then the population will be 472123,000 in 2061, which 50% increased based on 2013 data; and will be 632,499,000 in 2096, as double as 2013 data. Actually, even the increased rate smaller than 0.00839%, Because base value is growing, so the population is still growing fast, more than 2 million people net increased.
Below is the data from last 3 years:
From Dec. 1, 2010 to Dec. 1, 2011, population increased 312,616,396 – 310,353,564 = 2,262,832
From Dec. 1, 2011 to Dec. 1, 2012, population increased 314,908,469 – 312,616,396 = 2,292,073
From Dec. 1, 2012 to Dec. 1, 2013, population increased 317,135,349 – 314,908,469 = 2,226,880
Now, you can see if base value as much as 1.4 billion like China, and keep current average annually increase rate, it will increase 10 million one year, what’s that number means? that means, every year we will have new people as many as a New York City! So don’t criticize Chinese Government any more, maybe 100 years later, US government will have similar population control policy. There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and destroy. But you — who are you to judge your neighbor? (Jam 4:12)
China gained a big GDP in past 20 years, which was benefit their population control policy. Without this policy, many people will not survive to today.
