Why This Indicator Matters
See US Census Deaths OUtnumbered Births in 25 in 2021
For Maine, in-migration from people from other states has offset this loss in population. And 2021 saw an increase in the number of births in Maine.
What the data shows
Between 2020 and 2021, the number of births in Maine increased by 467 compared to a decrease 233 from 2019 to 2020.
Comparing 2020 to 2021 by county, just three counties had fewer births than the year before- Oxford (-52), Hancock (-41) and Somerset (-10). By contrast York had 124 births than the year before and Cumberland had 120 more births.
