  • No, The Wuhan Virus Won’t Cause A U.S. Population Decline

    Adding a city the size of Philadelphia in just one year hardly means we are on the cusp of a decline in population, as The New York Times article suggests. A recent news article by Sabrina Tavernise in The New York Times warned U.S. population growth has slowed so much that the Wuhan virus might tip the country into population decline this year. It is the latest in a string of articles, editorials, and columns recently that mislead the public about the nation’s demographic future. Like other writers, Tavernise anchors her warnings by pointing out that the rate of U.S....

    It has long been a cultural phenomenon that when people are confined to their homes due to dramatic weather events, babies start springing forth nine months later. Nearly half the worldÂ’s population is confined to their homes with two primary tasks: 1. Do not catch nor spread COVID-19. 2. DonÂ’t go nuts from boredom or cabin fever.In trying to accomplish No. 2, people are playing more board and card games. Others are catching up on sleep and preparing more homecooked meals. These are very good things.Husbands and wives are also finding themselves with plenty of time for other activities, and...

    The total number of coronavirus cases in the country touched 396 on Sunday (March 22) as 81 new cases were reported from different parts of the country. Question is: "How are those numbers so low, from a country where people live on top of each other and shoulder?"

  • How Chinese officials inflated the nation’s birth rate and population size for 2019

    South China Morning Post ^ | 01/28/2020 | Yi Fuxian
    China’s official demographic data in 2019 has seriously overestimated the country’s actual birth rate and population size, a grave mistake that will lead to disastrous policymaking if leaders blindly take these numbers as fact. My estimates show that China’s actual population size should be 1.279 billion at the end of 2019, or 121 million fewer than the officially stated 1.4 billion. The actual number of births in China last year should be about 10 million instead of 14.65 million, as reported by the National Bureau of Statistics. It doesn’t require rocket science to see the absurdity of China’s official demographic...

    Illinois’ population went down by an estimated 51,250 people in 2019, or 0.4%, marking the sixth consecutive year the state has lost residents, according to new data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Since the turn of the decade, Illinois has lost more residents than any other state, with a drop of about 159,700 people, or 1.2% of its population. Only three other states have shrunk since 2010: Connecticut, Vermont and West Virginia, with the latter losing the largest share of its residents, a 3.3% decline.

    WSJ ^ | Dec 30, 2019 | Janet Adamy and Paul Overberg
    New state population totals released Monday offer fresh signs that political power is poised to continue its shift from the North and Midwest to the South and Southwest in ways that could help states that have voted Republican in recent years. The Census Bureau on Monday released state population estimates for the year ended July 1. Congressional seats and electoral votes are allocated to states based on a census conducted every 10 years. Because the 2019 estimates come less than a year before the next decennial census, they closely approximate which states will gain and lose as a result of...

    NEW YORK CITY – People are fleeing New York much faster than any other state in the nation, figures released Monday by the U.S. Census Bureau show. More than 76,000 people packed up and shipped out of New York during 2019, heading to states such as Florida, Georgia and Texas — which were among the fastest-growing areas. After New York, the states that saw most people leaving were Illinois, with 51,250 departees; West Virginia, with 12,144; and Louisiana, with 10,896.

    The past year’s population growth rate in the United States was the slowest in a century due to declining births, increasing deaths and the slowdown of international migration, according to figures released Monday by the US Census Bureau. The US grew from 2018 to 2019 by almost a half per cent, or about 1.5 million people, with the population standing at 328 million this year, according to population estimates. That’s the slowest growth rate in the US since 1917 to 1918, when the nation was involved in the first world war, said William Frey, a senior fellow at the Brookings...

    Moscow Times ^ | Dec 28, 2019
    Russia’s population could drop by more than 12 million by 2035, the national statistics office said in its annual forecast published Friday. Russia’s overall population dropped for the first time in a decade last year, totaling 146.8 million as migration inflows hit record lows. It totaled 146.7 million so far in 2019, the State Statistics Service Rosstat said this month, as Russia experienced its highest natural population decline in 11 years. Here are the three population scenarios that Rosstat predicted for the next 15 years. In all cases, Russia’s natural population is expected to continue to decline — meaning deaths...

    As reported by the LA Times, according to data recently released by the Department of Finance, CaliforniaÂ’s population growth rate for the year ending July 1, 2019, was the lowest the state has experienced since 1900. Estimates indicate the Golden StateÂ’s population grew by 0.35 percent over the course of the year (or by 141,000 people), down from 0.57 percent for the previous year ending July 1, 2018. CaliforniaÂ’s growth in population was buoyed by the net difference between births and deaths in the state, which amounted to 180,800 people. However, this number was tempered by net losses in migration,...

    For the first time ever, Muhammad has made the list of top ten baby names in America.If Muhammad cannot beat the infidels on the battlefield, he’ll outbreed them—literally: Last year it was reported that “Mohammed most popular name for newborn boys in the Netherlands for second year in a row.” Muhammad is apparently also the most popular name in England. In fact, Muhammad is one of the most popular names throughout Northwest Europe. And now, for the first time ever, Muhammad has made the list of top ten baby names in America. While this may seem innocuous enough—what’s in a...

    The Atlantic ^ | 09/10/2019 | Derek Thompson
    Is this the age of the great metropolitan exodus? In 2018, the New York City area lost more than 100,000 people to other cities and suburbs—that’s 277 people leaving every day. The Los Angeles and Chicago areas lost, respectively, 201 and 161 residents each day. It’s quite a change from the post–Great Recession period, when an urban renaissance was supposedly sweeping the country and all three metro areas were experiencing a population boomlet. What’s going on? And where is everybody going? To understand any metro’s migration picture, you have to know that the census keeps track of two types of...

  • To Save Itself From Population Collapse, Hungary Offers Couples $35,000 For Having A Third Child

    The Federalist ^ | 07/29/2019 | By Emma Elliott Freire
    Like every country in the European Union (EU), Hungary is struggling with a population shortfall due largely to low childbearing rates. Their national fertility rate is currently at 1.49 children per woman, below the EU average of 1.59. Replacement-level fertility requires a rate of around 2.1. The United States’s fertility rate most recently hit a long-term low of 1.7, and has generally not seen birth rates better than replacement level since the 1970s.Hungary already has a labor shortage. Their people are moving abroad in search of higher-paying jobs. Yet someone has to work and pay taxes to fund Hungary’s...

    MSN News reprints a paywalled Los Angeles Times story on a startling development: California’s population growth has tumbled to the slowest rate in the state’s history.  The wonderful weather, scenery, and other attractions that have drawn people since 1849 no longer work. In asking themselves why this should be the case, writers Javier Panzar and Sarah Parvini manage to overlook the factor to is uppermost in my mind as I contemplate ending more than 30 years’ residence in the Golden State: the highest in the nation taxes, contrasted with the dismal state of the highways, schools, and other public...

The data comes from the Pew Research Center and is portending as to what s coming ahead.

    The decennial census doesn’t take place until next year, but there are annual population surveys being conducted every year around the country. The news from 2018 wasn’t particularly good for Baltimore, Maryland, however. Once again, rather than demonstrating any sort of growth, Charm City actually decreased in population and the losses were felt across virtually all demographic and economic lines. This is particularly distressing when you consider that Baltimore was once the nation’s sixth largest city. (NY Post) New annual estimates from the US Census Bureau show that Baltimore is continuing to shed inhabitants, bringing the overall population of...
