Frey says U.S. population growing at lowest rate since Great Depression

"U.S. Population Grows . . . But At A Snail's Pace" - Wall Street Journal. 12/30/2013.

The U.S. population grew by just 0.74% last year, well below the 1.2% average during the 1990s and the lowest since 1937. Although some parts of the U.S. grew more than others -- namely the South and West -- the economy has taken its toll nationwide. "We’re still stuck in the aftermath of the recession," says Frey, "leading to diminished immigration, low fertility, and below-normal movement across state lines to prosperous areas."
