I hope this is the correct thread for this, but i was looking up something else and i found this site which lists US
projected population growth.
Growth rate for 2021 was .59%, for 2022 .51% , projected for 2023 .47%.
By 2040 it's .36%, by 2050 it's .20%, by 2060 it's. 14%.
By 2090 it's .03%.
Keep in mind that theyre not just counting births, but also population growth from immigration. It also has the US, going from the 3rd most populous country at present to the 6th.
I understand that as you get to a larger whole even the same raw number increase would be a smaller percentage of growth, but still, we're looking at less births per capita for whatever reason.
For comparisons sake think of the 1960s baby boom generation having a US population of approx 175 million. In 60 years that US population almost doubled to 338 million. In another 60 years from now the US population is expected to only increase to 392 million.
I havent checked out the rates for other countries, but i would be interestimg to see if were looking at worldwide depop or localized. And which countries are expected to gain population?
