As our nation prepares to ring in the new year, the U.S. Census Bureau projects the U.S. and world population on New Year’s Day. The Census Bureau’s U.S. and World Population Clock simulates real-time growth of the United States and world populations at <>.

Also in December, the Census Bureau releases annual population estimates for each state and the District of Columbia as of the previous July 1st. The vintage 2017 population estimates cover the period from July 1, 2016, to July 1, 2017. We calculate the annual percent change for each state and round the percent to one decimal place.

The U.S. population clock is based on a series of short-term projections for the resident population of the United States. This includes people whose usual residence is in the 50 states and the District of Columbia.

The world population clock is sourced from the International Data Base (demographic data) and USA Trade Online (trade data).

From the Population and Housing Unit Estimates main page:

The Census Bureau's Population Estimates Program produces estimates of the population for the United States, its states, counties, cities and towns, as well as for the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and its municipios.

From the Population Projection main page:

Population projections are estimates of the population for future dates. They are typically based on an estimated population consistent with the most recent decennial census and are produced using the cohort-component method.
