In 2023, the global population will have risen by 75 million, and on New Year’s Day, it is expected to surpass 8 billion, according to the US Census Bureau.

Over the previous year, the global growth rate was slightly below 1 percent. As of the beginning of 2024, Census Bureau data indicates an anticipated rate of 4.3 births and two deaths per second worldwide.

As of January 1, the estimated global population is 8,019,876,189, indicating an approximately 1% rise. Notably, the United States witnessed a growth rate of 0.53%, resulting in the addition of 1.7 million individuals, reaching a total of 335.8 million on New Year’s Day. Demographers propose that the ongoing decade might be the least rapidly growing in history.

Demographers indicate that the present decade could witness the slowest growth in history. In 2024, the United States anticipates a birth approximately every nine seconds and a death approximately every 9.5 seconds. Nevertheless, immigration is projected to prevent a decline in the population.

The net international migration is foreseen to contribute to an increase of one person in the US population approximately every 28.3 seconds, resulting in an overall rise every 24.2 seconds.

According to demographer William Frey from The Brookings Institution, if the current trend persists until the end of the decade, the 2020s could be the least rapidly growing decade in U.S. history, with a growth rate of under 4% over the 10-year period from 2020 to 2030.

The slowest-growing decade to date occurred in the aftermath of the Great Depression in the 1930s, with a growth rate of 7.3%. Frey suggests that although growth might increase slightly post-pandemic, reaching 7.3% would still be challenging.
