4 Population Growth

5 Natural Growth When birthrate is higher than death rate
Birthrate is the annual (yearly) number of live births per 1,000 people Between 1790 and 1830, the US population TRIPLED primarily because of the high birthrate! By the mid 1920s, most of the population growth was natural. Remember QUOTAS??
