The ratio of males to females in United States is: 0.97 (this is the ratio of the entire population, in every age groups).
United States's population has 157,017,939 males and 161,874,164 females - about 4856223 more females than males.
Distribution of the different religions in United States (statistics)

Population Growth Rate
Population growth rate is the average annual percent change in the population, resulting from a surplus (or deficit) of births over deaths and the balance of migrants entering and leaving a country. The rate may be positive or negative. The growth rate is a factor in determining how great a burden would be imposed on a country by the changing needs of its people for infrastructure (e.g., schools, hospitals, housing, roads), resources (e.g., food, water, electricity), and jobs. Rapid population growth can be seen as threatening by neighboring countries.
The population growth rate in United States stands at 0.770 percent (2014 data).
United States is ranked 143 in the world in terms of population growth rate.
United States's population's growth rate is positive. It indicates that its population has grown at a rate of 0.770 percent per year (an increase of 2,455,470 people per year).
Birth Rate
Birth rate is the average annual number of births during a year per 1,000 persons in the population at midyear; also known as crude birth rate. The birth rate is usually the dominant factor in determining the rate of population growth. It depends on both the level of fertility and the age structure of the population.
The birth rate in United States stands at an annual average of 13.42 per 1,000 people in the population (2014 data).
In terms of birth rate, this statistical datum places United States as no. 150 in the world.
This birth rate indicates that there are 4,279,532 births per year in United States.
Death Rate
Death rate is the average annual number of deaths during a year per 1,000 population at midyear; also known as crude death rate. The death rate, while only a rough indicator of the mortality situation in a country, accurately indicates the current mortality impact on population growth. This indicator is significantly affected by age distribution, and most countries will eventually show a rise in the overall death rate, in spite of continued decline in mortality at all ages, as declining fertility results in an aging population.
The death rate in United States stands at an annual average of 8.15 per 1,000 people in the population (2014 data).
In terms of death rate, this statistical datum places United States as no. 94 in the world in the world.
This death rate reveals that United States has 2,598,971 cases of death a year.
Net Migration Rate
Net migration rate is the difference between the number of persons entering and leaving a country during the year per 1,000 persons (based on midyear population). An excess of persons entering the country is referred to as net immigration; an excess of persons leaving the country as net emigration. The net migration rate indicates the contribution of migration to the overall level of population change. The net migration rate does not distinguish between economic migrants, refugees, and other types of migrants nor does it distinguish between lawful migrants and undocumented migrants.
The net migration rate of United States stands at 2.45 per 1,000.
The migration rate indicates that United States's population grows annually by about 781,286 people, as a result of migration.
The net migration rate of United States places it as no. 40 in the world.
Additional Population Characteristics
Median Age
Median age is the age that divides a population into two numerically equal groups; that is, half the people are younger than this age and half are older. It is a single index that summarizes the age distribution of a population.
The median age of United States's population (male and female) is 37.6 years of age.
The median age of United States's male population in is 36.3.
The median age of United States's female population in is 39.0.
Urbanization And Urbanization Rate
About 82.4 percent of United States's population lives in urban areas; according to population size data in United States, the number of urban residents is around 262,767,093.
The population rate of urban areas in United States indicates that the urban population there has been growing by 1.14 percent per year.
