Census report profiles U.S. Population. (News Extra).

Some fascinating facts about America's people were recently revealed in a report by the Commerce Department's Census Bureau titled The Population Profile of the United States: 2000. Here are a few examples:

* Between 1999 and 2000, 1.7 million people moved into the U.S. from abroad; two-thirds of these movers were foreign-born.

* The "traditional" family (married couple with children under 18) fell from 40 percent of all households in 1970 to 24 percent in 2000.

* In the years 1997-2000, the proportion of households with Internet access more than doubled, from 18 percent to 42 percent.

* People who move long distances are five times more likely to do so for a work-related reason than those who move short distances.

* After five consecutive years of annual increases, real median household income did not change significantly between 1999 and 2000.
