A it is.

Less is used appropriately to modify the population stats and fewer to modify countable nouns.

I think,use of lower and lesser is inapp in this case as there is no case to compare the population with another period.

A) it is.

Another rule of thumb is ,

less is generally used with singulars and fewer with plurals.
