Did You Know The Population In The U.S.?

In 1950 there was a population of 2.5 billion people humans. Know there is 7 billion humans. In 30 years, according to U.S. Census Bureau projections, there will be more than 9 billion. Brad Lyon has a doctoral degree in mathematics and does software development. He wanted to make numbers visual. Last year he and designer Bill Snebold made a hugely popular interactive simulation map of births and deaths in the U.S. alone. In 2050 the population would increase by 44 precent.
