The U.S. Births to Deaths Ratios and Quotients, 1990-2010

The graph here illustrates the annual births to deaths ratio for the U.S. population from 1990 to 2010.

In interpreting this graph, it is important to know that a births to death (B/D) quotient of "1" would indicate a situation in which--in a given year--births and deaths were equal.

In 1990, the births to deaths quotient was near 1.95, a situation in which there were almost 2 births in the U.S. for every death in the U.S. In 2011, however, the births to deaths ratio had fallen.  The 2011 births to deaths quotient was under 1.6.
