24/7 Wall St.

How Many People Are Alive From the Year You Were Born

Source: Thinkstock
The U.S. fertility rate is at its lowest point in history, with 62.5 births per 1,000 women between the ages of 15 and 44. The total fertility rate has been below replacement level since 1971. Despite this, the nation’s population is the largest it has ever been. In addition to births, the U.S. population has been growing due to immigration and longer life expectancy.

24/7 Wall St. has determined the number of people alive today who were born each year since 1933. While the fertility rate has declined, the mortality rate has declined as well, increasing the share of Americans who are from a younger generation.

Due to increased access to health care, which has improved dramatically over the last century, life expectancy has gone up significantly. The average person born in 1930 lived to 59.7 years of age in. By 2012, the average life expectancy had increased to 78.8 years.

Click here to see how many people from the year you were born are alive.

To determine how many people are left from the year you were born, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed estimates of the 2017 native population by age from the U.S. Census Bureau. These estimates adjust for both naturalized citizens as well as native-born Americans living outside the United States. The share of people born each year since 1933 alive in 2017 was calculated by comparing these Census population estimates to the number of births each year from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Vital Statistics of the United States report series. Total U.S. population figures in each year were from the Bureau of Economic Analysis.

This is how many people from the year you were born are alive.
