Poor Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico’s population peaked in 2004 at 3.8 million. It’s declined steadily since. Worse, the rate of decline has continually worsened. In 2009-2010 the population declines were just 4,000 and 7,000 respectively. From 2011-2013 they were 53,000/year; from 2014-2016 they were 65,000/year. In CY2017, 78,000 (hurricanes Maria and Irma hit in 9/17) and in 2018 they were 123,000! Puerto Rico’s population is now 3.2 million. A death spiral is occurring.
