To find the annual rate of increase in the population, we can calculate the difference in population over the course of 3 years and divide it by 3 (since we are looking for the annual rate).

Initial population (year 2000): 7.54 * 10^7

Population after 3 years: 8.0 * 10^7

Difference in population: (8.0 * 10^7) - (7.54 * 10^7) = 0.46 * 10^7

Annual rate of increase: (0.46 * 10^7) / 3 = 0.153 * 10^7

The annual rate of increase in the population is approximately 0.153 * 10^7, or 1.53 million people per year.
