Below is a media advisory brought to you today from our very own United States Census Bureau. It's nice to know that our census dollars are being used and that the chief demographer has a sense of humor.
United States Population Reaches Milestone —
Shortly after 2:29 p.m. EDT today, the U.S. population clock will reach
a milestone that is very meaningful to mathematical statisticians: it
will show there are 314,159,265 residents, or pi (3.14159265) times 100
million. Pi is a mathematical constant that is the ratio of a circle’s
circumference to its diameter. “This is a once in many generations
event...so go out and celebrate this American pi,” said Census Bureau
Chief Demographer Howard Hogan.
