New Year's Day 2023: January 1, 2023

Press Release Number CB23-SFS.001

As our nation prepares to ring in the New Year, the U.S. Census Bureau projects the United States and world populations 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.

Each year in December, the Census Bureau releases annual population estimates for the Nation, States, the District of Columbia, and the Puerto Rico Commonwealth as of the previous July 1st. The Vintage 2022 population estimates cover the period from April 1, 2020, to July 1, 2022. We calculate the annual percent change for each state and round the percent to one decimal place.
