As we celebrate the founding of the United States, it’s an ideal time to reflect on some fun facts from the US Census Bureau. 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 US is estimated at 311.7 Million. Flags Unfurled 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 US manufacturers each year. Lady Liberty More than 31 places have the word "Liberty" in their names; the most populous is Liberty, Missouri with nearly 30,000 people. Patriot-ism 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. Best wishes to you on this special time of summer.
