By T. Thompson In Latest News with Comments Off on Grim: this state saw more deaths than births last year

In a grim first, in 2020, more people died in Alabama than were born.

“Our state literally shrunk,” said Dr. Scott Harris, the state’s top health official.

Alabama saw 64,714 deaths last year, Harris said, compared to 57,641 births. Officials will confirm the preliminary numbers later in the year.

Harris said the state hadn’t experienced this milestone in over 100 years, not even during World War II.
