An earlier report' from the Census Bureau outlined the re- urn of blacks to the South.as a particular factor in the} resurgence of that area. Cutting across all of the changes! however, was the nation's falling birth -. rate. "' Air though total population grew an average of 1.1 per cent a year a the first three years after the 1970 census, the growth slowed to seven-tenths of 1 per cent as of July 1 last year. That left total population at 211,390,000.
