Multiracials and Constitution Day

Factoid: About nine million people self-identified as multiracial on the 2010 U.S.Census

U.S. Population Reaches 314,395,013 on Constitution Day

The U.S. Census Bureau reports that the U.S. population will reach 314,395,013 at noon today, which is the 225th anniversary of the signing of the Constitution on Sept. 17, 1787, in Philadelphia.

Sept. 17 is recognized as Constitution Day and Citizenship Day to commemorate the creation and signing of the supreme law of the land and to honor and celebrate the privileges and responsibilities of U.S. citizenship for both native-born and naturalized citizens. Federal law requires that all schools receiving federal funds hold an educational program for their students on Sept. 17 of each year.


  1. Interesting. Our schools were closed today. Wonder if they are required to hold a program on another date?

  2. That's a very good question! I have no idea if they are required to hold a program on another date. -Susan
