Huge Population Drop Predicted for America
According to this graph, America’s population is going to drop from 320 million to 61 million in the next 8 years.
So….. how does this happen?
So, I did some online research, and this is what I found so far (drop in immigration and birthrate)
Does this completely explain the numbers?:
What’s Driving the Decline in U.S. Population Growth?
(May 2012) Between 2010 and 2011, the U.S. population increased by 0.7 percent, after averaging 0.9 percent growth each year from 2000 through 2010.1
The United States added just 2.3 million people from 2010 to 2011, compared with 2.9 million from 2005 to 2006, just five years earlier.
The decline in U.S. population growth is likely due to a confluence of factors: lower levels of immigration, population aging, and declining fertility rates.
In the early 2000s, immigration accounted for roughly 40 percent of U.S. population growth, leaving 60 percent from natural increase.2
During the past few years, however, net international migration is estimated to have accounted for only 30 percent of the annual population growth.
The decline in immigration has been linked to job losses in construction, manufacturing, and other occupations that are often filled by recent immigrants, as well as stricter enforcement of immigration laws.
Net immigration levels from Mexico are estimated to have reached zero in recent years as an equal number of people entering the United States from Mexico are now returning to their home country.3
The recent decline in immigration has also accelerated population aging in the United States. Most immigrants are working-age adults, and many start families after they arrive in the U.S., creating an immigrant youth bulge.5
Less immigration therefore reduces the potential number of young people in the population. But even if immigrant levels had held steady during the recession, the U.S. population would still be growing older as the large cohort of baby boomers starts to reach retirement age.
A decade ago, children under age 18 made up a significant component of annual population growth and exceeded the growth of those ages 65 and older (see Figure 2).
But by 2011, these patterns had reversed: The number of people under age 18 declined by 190,000 between 2010 and 2011, while the number of elderly increased by 917,000.
Growth in the number of working-age adults, including those in prime childbearing ages, is also down sharply.
Declining Fertility Rates
U.S. fertility rates have also declined in recent years, reducing levels of natural increase in the population. There were an estimated 4 million births between 2010 and 2011, down from 4.2 million at the recent peak of U.S. population growth between 2005 and 2006.
The total fertility rate (TFR) stood at 2.0 births per woman in 2009—down from 2.1 a few years ago—but preliminary data from the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) suggest that the TFR could drop below 2 births per woman in 2010.
Latinos currently account for more than one-fourth of all births in the United States. Yet the Latina general fertility rate (births per 1,000 Latinas ages 15 to 44) dropped from 102 in 2007 to 80 in 2010, according to preliminary NCHS estimates.
This represents a significant decline for a group with historically high fertility rates—approaching 3 births per woman just a few years ago. If current trends continue, the Latina TFR could drop below 2.5 in the near future.
The U.S. population is currently projected to reach "majority minority" status (the point at which less than 50 percent of the population is non-Hispanic white) in 2042.
However, a sustained drop in immigration levels and fertility rates would slow the pace of minority population growth.
It’s too soon to tell whether these are short-term trends resulting from the U.S. economic downturn, or whether they will continue in the future. But either way, these current trends represent a significant departure from developments over the past decade.
Projecting Immigration’s Impact on the Size and Age
Structure of the 21st Century American Population

How To Stop The Demographic Death Of White America: 5 Steps
Or is something else a factor in such a dramatic drop in population?
The last graph above seems to indicate no drop at all in population, but more of a demographic percent change in ethnic groups, where whites and minorities become more equal in number.
This chart does not indicate the death rate as changing much in the past 50 years, although the birth rate is half.
320 million to 60 million?
That is a drop of 81 %……
Is this source correct?
Deagel says this. It appears to be an economic collapse:
The key element to understand the process that the USA will enter in the upcoming decade is migration.
In the past, specially in the 20th century, the key factor that allowed the USA to rise to its colossus status was immigration with the benefits of a demographic expansion supporting the credit expansion and the brain drain from the rest of the world benefiting the States.
The collapse of the Western financial system will wipe out the standard of living of its population while ending ponzi schemes such as the stock exchange and the pension funds.
The population will be hit so badly by a full array of bubbles and ponzi schemes that the migration engine will start to work in reverse accelerating itself due to ripple effects thus leading to the demise of the States.
This unseen situation for the States will develop itself in a cascade pattern with unprecedented and devastating effects for the economy.
Jobs offshoring will surely end with many American Corporations relocating overseas thus becoming foreign Corporations!!!!
We see a significant part of the American population migrating to Latin America and Asia while migration to Europe – suffering a similar illness – won’t be relevant.
Nevertheless the death toll will be horrible.
Take into account that the Soviet Union’s population was poorer than the Americans nowadays or even then.
The ex-Soviets suffered during the following struggle in the 1990s with a significant death toll and the loss of national pride. Might we say "Twice the pride, double the fall"? Nope.
The American standard of living is one of the highest, far more than double of the Soviets while having added a services economy that will be gone along with the financial system.
When pensioners see their retirement disappear in front of their eyes and there are no servicing jobs you can imagine what is going to happen next.
At least younger people can migrate.
Never in human history were so many elders among the population. In past centuries people were lucky to get to their 30s or 40s.
The American downfall is set to be far worse than the Soviet Union’s one. A confluence of crisis with a devastating result.
In contrast, Mexico will see the same population in 2025:
And Brazil will see an increase in population:
It may be wise to look at Deagel projections, and determine what countries who expect an increase in finances and population are doing right, and the USA, and other countries who are projected as “decreasing,” to see what they are doing wrong.
The bible predicts a major decrease in population due to natural catastrophes and divine judgments.
There is also a strong possibility that these are not the only cause.
We also are killing ourselves off with bad decisions, like foolish economic moves, creating false economic bubbles that will pop, increasing debts, dangerous immigration instead of good immigration, decreased birth rate, abortions, and waging war.
