In honor of Independence Day, here are some fun facts from the U.S. Census Bureau about the United States.
America Then and Now
The number of people living in the newly created United States back in July 1776 totaled 2.5 million people. This 4th of July, the number of people living in the U.S. is estimated at 311.7 million.
Did you know that $3.2 million worth of American flags were imported in 2010? Perhaps more surprising is that $486,026 worth of American flags were exported, with Mexico being the leading customer of those flags.
Rockets’ Red Glare
More than $230 million worth of fireworks and pyrotechnics are shipped by U.S. manufacturers each year.
More than 31 places have the word “Liberty” in their names; the most populous is Liberty, Missouri, with nearly 30,000 people.
Unlike the word “Liberty,” the word “Patriot” is rare in town or city names. In fact, according to the Census Bureau, there’s only one place with the word “Patriot” in its name, and that’s Patriot, Indiana, with 209 residents.
