US Just passed population of 300m (The stats behind)

This is a great piece of information from a recent NYT article:

"The US Census Bureau has been recording the steady march to the 300 million mark with an online polulation clock that adds one person every 11 Seconds. The bureau calculates that one person is born every seven seconds, one dies every 13 seconds, and one immigrates every 31 seconds."

I just love that kind of stats!
