The nation's resident population could more than double in
this century, according to national population projections to
the year 2100 released today by the Commerce Department's Census
According to the projections, the nation's resident population
273 million on July 1, 1999 is projected to reach 404 million in
2050 and 571 million in 2100. These results are based on middle-
level assumptions regarding population growth during the century.
The data also show lowest and highest alternative projections.
The lowest series projects population growth to 314 million in 2050
and then a decline to 283 million in 2100. The highest projects 553
million people in 2050 and 1.2 billion in 2100.
