    This Wednesday, Dec. 16, 2009 picture shows reactor containment domes of the Indian Point nuclear power plant in Buchanan, N.Y. above the homes just north of the town of Verplanck, N.Y. as seen from the Stony Point Historic Site, about 40 miles north of New York City. Nuclear sites were originally picked mainly in rural areas to lessen the impact of accidents. However, in a 2011 series, the AP reported population growth of up to 350 percent within 10 miles of nuclear sites between 1980 and 2010. About 120 million Americans - almost 40 percent - live within 50 miles of a nuclear power plant, according to the AP's analysis of Census data. (AP Photo/Julie Jacobson)

    In this March 6, 2012 photo, Daisy Rowlands crosses a street in Stanley, Falkland Islands. Rowlands' great-great grandfather James Watson was one of the earliest British settlers of the Falklands, arriving in 1839. Census results show zero population growth in the Falkland Islands. A survey in April found just 2,563 residents, a term that excludes civilian contractors and British military personnel. That's basically the same population as six years ago.

    People walk down the main street of San Jose December 23, 2011. Costa Rica's population growth has sunk to an annual rate of 1.1 percent over the last 11 years, the slowest increase since 1864 when the first census was taken, according to Costa Rica's National Institute of Statistics and Census (INEC). According to local media, the 2011 census found that the population is now 4,301,712 inhabitants, well below what experts had estimated as more couples are putting off procreating and having fewer and fewer children.
