According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the white population will no longer be the majority in America by 2043. Source
I really just don’t understand why this blog doesn’t read through it’s sources more carefully or why it presents it’s information the way it does. It goes on to state:
The U.S. has nearly 315 million people today. According to the projections released Wednesday, the U.S. population is projected to cross the 400 million mark in 2051, 12 years later than previously projected. The population will hit 420.3 million a half century from now in 2060.
By then, whites will drop to 43 percent of the U.S. Blacks will make up 14.7 percent, up slightly from today. Hispanics, currently 17 percent of the population, will more than double in absolute number, making up 31 percent, or nearly 1 in 3 residents, according to the projections. Asians are expected to increase from 5 percent of the population to 8 percent.
So even in 2060, while Whites won’t be a majority when you look at the data like this -
- they will still be the biggest group when you look at the data like this:
Depending on how you look at the data, both are right. But the way in which the first chart is presented can be pretty misleading.
