What a Country!

Abstract

Potential trends of immigration, population growth rates, and population densities in the US in 2109 are discussed. The existing high-growth rates reveal that immigration will continue to increase and that high fertility rates among immigrants will increase the rate of growth to 2.7 births per woman. These trends are expected to increase the US population to around 1.2 billion in 2100. The country's population will be larger than the existing population of India and less than that of China's existing population. Arthur C. Nelson, FAICP, University of Utah has informed at the 2008 American Planning Association Conference that the population of the country will be similar to China's existing population figures in 2100. He assumes that continued immigration, high fertility rates, and longer life expectancy will play a key role in increasing the population of the country in 2100.
