Profile AmericaProfile America — Saturday, December 31st. On this New Year’s Eve, more than 312 million Americans of all ages are ready to greet the year 2012. A hundred years ago, the U.S. population was approaching 94 million — 50 years ago, it was nearing 184 million. To show how fast the nation is growing, by this time tomorrow, there will be more than 7,200 new babies on hand to welcome the New Year. Tonight’s celebration will see many of the 182,000 musicians and singers in the U.S. entertaining crowds in night clubs, bars, and restaurants across the country. Also on hand will be most of the 393,000 bartenders and just over 2 million waiters and waitresses. The men and women of the U.S. Census Bureau wish you a happy, safe, and prosperous New Year.
