A comparison to some other countries population growths:

Australia with its 2% population growth = 447,280 new people each year.

China with its 0.5% population growth = 6,698,500 new people each year.

India with its 1.3% population growth = 15,732,000 new people each year, that’s 43,100 per day.

Australia’s population increase in one year is matched by India in 10 days, and China in 24 days. The USA would take 52 days to increase by that same 447,000, at its current 1% growth rate.
