That's really surprising to me. I've read that Canada's population would be in slight decline were it not for immigration. The same is true of many other countries, like Germany.
Americans, across both racial and ethnic lines, tend to have a higher birthrate than most other developed countries. I think it's been this way for quite some time, too.
