The US population is projected to grow slowly, to age considerably and to become more racially and ethnically diverse. Despite slowing population growth particularly by 2030, the U.S. population is still expected to grow by 78 million people by 2060, crossing the 400 - million treshold in 2058.

The population is projected to grow more from international migration than natural increase in coming decades because of population aging. As baby boomers age into older adulthood, the number of deaths is projected to rise faster than the number of birth.  As a result, the population will naturally grow very slowly.

The population is projected to continue growing over the next 40 years, but the force behind that growth is expected to change. Between 2017 and 2060, the population is projected to grow by 78 million people, more than half of which is expected to come from international migration.
