U.S. Population Tops 271 Million

December 30, 1998

WASHINGTON (AP) _ The United States added more than 2.5 million people this year, the Census Bureau reports, estimating that the population, as of Jan. 1, will be 271,645,214.

Next year’s growth is expected to be about 2.3 million, less than this year’s because of an anticipated increase in deaths as the population grows and ages, the bureau said Tuesday.
