a PSC In The News reference

"Is the U.S. entering a population slump?" - CNN.com. 05/26/2011.

The U.S. population is growing more slowly now than since the Great Depression, and more slowly than the world population. David Lam sees America's slow down as a logical outcome of the baby boomers aging out of their childbearing years, and not cause for alarm. Overall, we're in a "good place" when it comes to growth, he says.
