Abstract

This section presents basic statistics about the people who live in the United States, with particular attention to those who are female. Some projections about the U.S. population in years to come are included here, as are some data from past years. Here, as in every section of the “Statistical Portrait,” each table and figure is accompanied by a sentence or two intended to help the reader make sense of the numbers.
