The US Census Bureau reported the US population to be approximately 308,000,000 in 2010. It also reported that 6.5% of the population was under 5 years of age. How many children under the age of 5 were living in the US in 2010?
Given that the US population is approximately 308,000,000 in 2010 and that 6.5% of this population is under 5 years of age, we will know that number of children by multiplying 6.5% by 308,000,000. So the answer would be 20,020,000. So that is the number of children below 5 years old. Hope this helps.
