This year, like most other years, the US Census Bureau released some year-end population stats including an estimate of the population as of the turn of the calendar page. Some of the findings reported by the Bureau include:
- The US population for the United States estimated for Jan 1, 2012 was projected to be 312,780,968
- This would represent an increase of 2,250,129, or 0.7 percent, from New Year’s Day 2011
- This would be an increase of 4,035,430, or 1.3 percent, since Census Day (April 1, 2010)
