Roll Call reports:
At least 330 million people lived in the United States as of April, according to a Census Bureau estimate released Tuesday that will serve as one of the first accuracy checks for forthcoming decennial census results.
Overall, the agency estimates that between 330 and 335 million people lived in the United States as of April 1, the reference day for the 2020 census.
That’s about 20 million more people in the country than in 2010, roughly a 6 percent change. The country’s growth has slowed over the last several decades, last increasing by more than 10 percent between 1980 and 1990.
