The United States Census released its findings on Tuesday, detailing changes in our country’s makeup over the past 10 years. After eight months of sorting through forms turned in by U.S. residents, the survey shows that the number of human beings living on American soil rose 9.7% to 308,745,538 people. That marks the slowest rate of population growth since the Great Depression.
