Census: Fewer white babies being born

By Stephanie Siek and Joe Sterling, CNN

(CNN)– U.S. minorities now represent more than half of America's population under the age of 1, the Census Bureau said, a historic demographic milestone with profound political, economic and social implications.

The bureau - defining a minority as anyone who is not "single race white" and "not Hispanic" - released estimates on Thursday showing that 50.4% of children younger than 1 were minorities as of July 1, 2011, up from 49.5% from the 2010 Census taken in April 2010.

"2011 is the first time the population of infants under age 1 is majority minority," said Robert Bernstein, a Census Bureau spokesman.

The latest statistics - which also count the national population younger than 5 as 49.7% minority in 2011, an increase from 49% in 2010 - portend a future of a more racially diverse America, with new and growing populations playing more important roles politically and economically in years to come, analysts say.

Like other analysts, Kenneth M. Johnson, senior demographer at the Carsey Institute and professor of sociology at the University of New Hampshire, isn't surprised at the trend.

"We've known it was going to come, but the question was what year the "crossover point" would happen, he said.

"Little children are in the vanguard of all this change coming to America." he said.

Johnson sees the trend as an opportunity for more Americans to embrace diversity. More children are going to be exposed to a more diverse group of classmates, and that will affect attitudes and outlook.

The changes are going to be felt first in hospitals, as well as schools, where an increasingly diverse child population has to be absorbed. Hospitals would need interpreters and translators, for example, Johnson said. English as a second language would be an educational priority.

While many regions such as Atlanta have a diverse population, other regions lack racial and ethnic variety and will have to deal with a new kind of population, he said. In declining rural counties, he said, an influx of groups like Hispanics would serve to renew communities and changes would ensue.

"For a country that's aging, we need young workers, and the growth of the minority population will contribute to the size of the young adult workforce," he said. "This is breathing new life into the United States."

Jeff Passell, senior demographer at the Pew Hispanic Center, called the Census numbers "a cumulative effect of 35 to 40 years of immigration" bringing large numbers of Latinos, Asians and other immigrants into the United States.

He said the Hispanic population in particular is very young, much more concentrated in child-bearing years, and has a higher fertility rate than the white, non-Hispanic population. Lately, he says, there are a lot more births among native Hispanics in the United States than new Hispanic immigrants, a "cumulative effect" of immigration.

If the trend continues, Passell says several decades from now, possibly in the late 2030s or early 2040s, the U.S. population will become less than 50% non-Hispanic white.

"This is a trend that we can reasonably expect to continue. The factors that determine this have been set into motion, and in demography things tend to change gradually," he said.

There were 114 million minorities in 2011, or 36.6% of the U.S. population, a bump of half a percentage point from 2010. The latest figures count Hispanics as the most populous and fastest growing minority group.

They numbered 52 million in 2011, and their population grew by 3.1% since 2010. The U.S. Hispanic population grew from 16.3% in 2010 to 16.7% in 2011.

"California had the largest Hispanic population of any state on July 1, 2011 (14.4 million), as well as the largest numeric increase within the Hispanic population since April 1, 2010, (346,000)," the Census said.

"New Mexico had the highest percentage of Hispanics at 46.7%. Los Angeles had the largest Hispanic population of any county (4.8 million) in 2011 and the largest numeric increase since 2010 (73,000). Starr County - on the Mexican border in Texas - had the highest share of Hispanics (95.6 percent)."

Asians numbered 18.2 million nationally in 2011, making them the second fastest-growing minority group - up by 3% since 2010. Figures show that California had the largest Asian population of any state at 5.8 million and the largest increase since 2010 at 131,000.

"Hawaii is our nation's only majority-Asian state, with people of this group comprising 57.1% of the total population. Los Angeles had the largest Asian population of any county (1.6 million) in 2011, and also the largest numeric increase (16,000) since 2010. At 61.2%, Honolulu had the highest percentage of Asians in the nation," the Census said.

African-Americans are the second largest minority group in the United States at 43.9 million in 2011, an increase of 1.6% from 2010. New York has the largest black population of any state with 3.7 million and Texas has the largest increase from 2010 of 84,000. Cook County, Illinois, which includes Chicago, has the largest black population of any county at 1.3 million. Fulton County, Georgia, which includes Atlanta, has the largest increase since 2010 at 13,000.

The District of Columbia has the highest percentage of blacks at 52.2%. Mississippi has the second-largest at 38%.

America's native population - labeled "American Indian and Alaska Native population" by the Census - was about 6.3 million in 2011, up 2.1% from 2010. California had the largest such population at 1,050,000 and the largest increase at 23,000. Alaska had the highest share at 19%. Los Angeles had the largest such population of any county, with 231,000, and the largest increase, 9,000 since 2010.

The population classified as "Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander" was 1.4 million in 2011, up 2.9% since 2010. Hawaii had the largest such population of any state at 359,000 and the highest percentage at 26.1. California had the largest increase since 2010 at 9,000. Honolulu has the largest population of any county at 235,000. Los Angeles County had the largest increase since 2011 at 2,700.

Of single race non-Hispanic whites, California had the largest population at 15 million. Texas had the largest increase since 2010 at 80,000. Maine had the highest percentage of the non-Hispanic white alone population, 94.3 percent.

Four states and the District of Columbia have predominantly minority populations, Hawaii, at 77%, the District of Columbia at 64.7%, California, at 60.3%, New Mexico, at 59.8%, and Texas, at 55.2%. Minorities comprised the majority population in 11% of the nation's 3,143 counties.

Michael White, professor of sociology at Brown University, said the rise of minorities fits into a longer-term evolution of the U.S. population, a mosaic that has been adapting to ethnic change since the first Census was recorded in 1790. There have been many groups represented over time, from enslaved and indigenous peoples, those of European stock, and now to a population reflecting the wider world - truly a "melting pot," he said.

White says it's hard to say how the changes will affect politics and that one can't assume that ethnic patterns will determine voting patterns. Local economic issues, for example, will evolve differently in different states and cities, and there are economic benefits of having a younger population, he said.

"The political dimensions will play out differently," he said. And by the time the babies are old enough to cast ballots, "the United States will be a different place when they are walking into a voting booth."

William Frey, Brookings Institution demographer, sees political challenges for new immigrants and an economy benefiting from their presence. Many Hispanics and Asians are too young to vote or can't cast ballots because they haven't become citizens.

"It's going to take perhaps awhile before the younger people get more engaged in politics. They do have an impact in some places, like swing states, such as Nevada, Colorado and Florida. They can make a difference," he said.

He, too, says that newcomers to the United States bring an energy that invigorates the economic system and an older society.

"I think we're going to just see that the younger part of the population will have a different vibe," he said. "They are sort of needed to help our youthful image and to add to that vitality. They will bring a dimension and element we sorely need."

    What is missing from this discussion are the reasons Whites are not having children. Maybe we need to look at the root cause of this problem.

      Low birth rate for whites? They just want to be able to feed their children out of their own pocket and not the government's pocket. They only have as many children as one can afford. Those that don't think that way, marry out side of their culture.

      The problem is not race, its economics. Whites do tend towards being more educated and more stable economically. Which means that they chose to plan their families better. Minorities include immigrant populations that are from regions where large families are common. A majority of Hispanics are Catholic, large families are encouraged. (Same with Muslims, Hindus and African cultures) In a generation or two, when these populations have established themselves like my Eastern European family, their birthrates will drop. Also, poor, both white and minority do not have as much access to education and contraception. Rural white families in impoverished areas still have a high birth rate. I see it in my home town in PA. I also see it in more religious people. Here in Utah, we have a the highest birth rate of any state. We're also the second most religious state behind Mississippi.

      It is not that they are not having children it is that a lot of them cannot. If you think this is not true, look at the couples seeking adoption and being so desperate that they even adopt African children–knowing full well this will be a burden to the child in our society. That and the amount of people seeking fertility treatments–something is wrong–google the article on CNN about white male sperm counts.

      Maybe because financially they know they cannot afford to have kids and are not procreating like rabbits like other races that will then just have the Government take care of them, while taxpayers, hey probably white people, pay for them.

      I would love to have kids, I financially cannot afford it and I am not about to try and have a child that I will not be able to take care of.

        You are actually right. The vast majority of people over 60 are white. So in another few years, the baby boomers will be collecting Medicare and pensions, which will be funded by a non-white "majority". They will also be looked after by minority nurses in hospitals and retirement homes. In other words, the elderly racists out there don't even realize they are biting the hand that is going to feed them and keep them alive.

    Minorities have always been the majority. Only when they lumped together a bunch of different groups like Irish, Polish, German, Italian, etc. and call them all just "white" did we have a group that made up the majority. Taken by themselves, they've always been minorities.

    All races and all religions have people sucking resources from society. Unfortunately and most often, the ones that are NOT paying their share of taxes have the most children. The more children the more it costs. This means more people depend on the government and the more support for a social government. When they grow up, who are they going to support politically? ...They will vote for the political party giving the handouts. Somebody has to pay for the tax cuts and benefits for these people. Just remember....rats will reproduce to the point of starvation. Give them more food and they will once again reproduce to the point of starvation. The whites will be a minority soon enough and the USA will be a 3rd world country and the population will expand to the point of starvation from lack of resources. Then all the democrats(socialists) can be happy. You will no longer be a free country and the government will have your life in their hands. You will say the USA was once, not too long ago, a great country.

    Everyone needs to stop breeding. The more people, the less resources available per person, the more conflict will be created for those resources. Increased poverty levels will result as well. Overcrowding will result. Increased crime levels will occur. Why are you people so stupid that you keep procreating and yet you don't have the resources to take care of the children you already have? I guess you expect the government to do that for you. Guess what, the government is broke, which means you are too. Try and take those resources from me and I'll just start reducing our population one bullet at a time. We are supposed to be the most intelligent species on this planet, but you people just keep proving evolution wrong. And that goes for everyone, not just minorities. Everyones a minority somewhere.

    I am not surprised. The current generation of white adults are the most selfish and the worst parents the world has ever seen. I see a whole generation of white children in school who do not have a clue about anything and almost no contact with their parents except money.They are raised by TV and peers with little to no guidance from their parents who have no concept of the word NO. They get every newest gadget, game, and car with no concept of the value of a dollar. They are not taught anything about responsibility or how to earn a dollar. They have been raised to be rude arrogant failures who do not have a clue. Most adult whites fortunately are too interested in outdoing everyone else to bother raising a family. It is more important to have the biggest mansion and expensive car to go along with their playboy lifestyles.

        We still have people who abuse their children but that is not common. We are definitely guilty of neglect. Giving a kid a new iPhone, X-Box game, or car and letting them decide what is right and wrong with no guidance is neglect. Kids need to be taught and just giving them money so they do not bother the parents lifestyle is not a way to do that.

      Tha is amusing. It's the minorities that are the worst parents. Most of them never see their children. They allow everyone else to raise their children for them. They have children just to add more money to their welfare checks. How many children in the projects are actually being raised by their own parents? That's the reason why the majority of prisoners are minorities. You claim whites don't raise their children, seems to me minorities don't raise theirs. And since I've seen more minority children running the streets without parental guidance, I'd say it's the minorities who need a lesson in parenting.

And a racist does not necessarily have to hate (but you seem to hate the people that are absent parents), they make generalized statements based on ignorance in regards to a persons ethnic background.

      Whites have never been the majority by the numbers. They have just been one of the most dominant races throughout history. They subjugate people easily and take what they want, and they can rarely be stopped. There have been a couple other races that have had power throughout history, but they were usually conquered by the white race eventually. The majority is more about power than numbers. Look at the so called 1% in this country. They are few, but control everything. And most of them are white. Minorities can continue to procreate and all that means is the dominant powers have more people to subjugate, but it won't shift the balance of power.

        It has nothing to do with subjugation. White people have a tendency to chase after what they want. There is an old saying: Take away all money from everybody and divide it evenly amongst everybody. Within 1 year, the rich will be rich again, and the poor will be poor again.

        It has everything to do with skill-sets, effort, and constantly improving oneself. Do you know how many minority problems could be solved if they did not squirt inside their wife or girlfriend? Having kids you cannot afford is a big problem in this country, and whites do it less than anybody. They spend their time trying to make money. "Don't squirt inside her" should be a motto for the next decade.

        Wow, really? We as a nation need to re-read our history. The great waves of migrants coming from Europe throughout the 18th and 19th centuries were viewed by the domestic US population in the same light. Germans, Italians, Irish, etc.. all fasted a reasonably hostile welcome. Persecution was the norm. Yet, despite this, they (the collective representation) have made great strides in making this nation great (business, politics, military service,,,,). Mexican immigrants have been targeted, restoking the same bigoted indignation about robbing our country. The facts, however, show that many occupied jobs that caucasians simply wouldn't take, and the current numbers show an exodus. Don't be a sucker to ignorance and political anger & partisanship. Learn our history, and use your brains on the issues!

        People trend towards where they find acceptance, people find more acceptance among people who share the same physical features and challenges than among those who are different, often when someone different (from any race) tries to assimilate into a different group –they are met with overt hostility. THIS is the reason groups tend to stick together, it has more to do with being safe and comfortable and accepted not due to wanting merely to be with people who look like you.

Do they feed the poor and starving better in the third world or do they wait for us to send food to them. Move to a colored country for a batter life? That's why they are all moving here.

        Affirmative action specifies that any company or business receiving money or contracts from the government provide for the following: out of each 100 jobs they may have on offer, 5 jobs must be set aside to be shared among all qualified women, minorities, and handicapped.

        the reason is taxes represent everyone so any company that takes government money or contracts must reflect all tax payers (75% of blacks and other minorities pay taxes too).

        That is all affirmative action actually mandates and companies can get around that by proving they had no qualified applicants of other gender or race if they want to keep white males in 100% of the jobs. That's right–women have been HUGE benficiaries of Affirmative Action–including white women.

    Get the F K outta here.If you think this is good news, you either A) watch too much TV and believe every minority is a fun loving citizen who slides down rainbows or B ) have the intellect of a chipped ham sandwich.Look at where these people live.They turn every place into a war zone.And you applaud this ? Look at the continent of Africa.Other than Botswana, name me a flourishing country on that continent.And don't say South Africa because their crime rate is insane.Yeah, businesses might be opening there, but good luck getting to the business.Don't even think about stopping at a sign or light while driving.

      Unfortunately, most of America does not (or refuses to) believe the trend that has been since the civil rights movement came along. That moment was the beginning of the end of (the good part) of the US as we knew it. Minorities (blacks in particular) are destroying this country at an alarming rate and have been since then.

      How many people are on welfare? How many people on welfare are black?

      How many people are in prison, how many people in prison are black?

      What % of the black population are in poverty?

      Now–how many black people are in America?

      It is soooo easy to just set a group aside to blame and hate–but after you look up the stats and do the math, you may be surprised how many (75%) are not in poverty and you may be surprised that the majority around 39 million, are neither on welfare or in jail–and yet, a lot of people indict all blacks–sounds a lot like stereotyping and racist stereotyping at that.

Over-population and it's effects are the biggest threats to the many things that make this a great country. Our resources for the poor are already insufficient. Crime is rampant, and so is unemployment. Yet, as you can see from the article, certain ethnic groups continue to crank out babies like rats because they have no sense of responsibility. no one should have babies they can't afford and/or won't raise to be productive members of society.

    There are three things that have been shown to reduce the birth rates of groups:

    2) Access to a quality educational system.
    3) Open access to higher paying job opportunities.

    Thus those bigots who wanted to keep the resources and access to themselves to the above things are watching the results: minorities who are not treated fairly ending up having more children. Bigots loose again.

That's 174.4%. I'm not a population expert, but a quick online search shows Hawaiians are less than half a percent of US population. If you want accuracy in your news, you won't find it on CNN.

The 33.9% is of their population as a race being under 18, not 33.9% of the whole. Congress does math just like you do, that's why they don't think the national debt which has been slowly killing our economy is a causal affect of the current economy and they just keep spending.

        @Daniela–I laughed out loud at your comment. I am a minority and was never EVER taught to play the victim. Perhaps my father came to this country on a student visa and wanted to become a citizen so badly that he enlisted in the military during war time to increase his chances. Illegals who cheat their way into America, steal from the government, and commit crimes here are a slap in the face to those hard working immigrants who come here to contribute to our society.

        You mention how *so sad* a minority's parents had to "struggle" in a "white" world. It's called HARD WORK!! Yeah, my relative endured racism–still do! But guess what? That's LIFE. LIFE isn't fair. I'm not saying it's right, but certain cultural groups have FAILED miserably by failing to teach their children that life is tough, nothing is free, and there are consequences to every single one of our actions. Then, you have bleeding hearts who come behind them, cleaning up the mess and excusing this poor behavior. Wake up, America. "Whites" or the "majority" or whatever you want to call them are part of the problem–we excuse bad behavior.

        Idiots procreating irresponsibly, out of wedlock, and having babies on the government dime is not a race issue. It's a cultural issue. There's trash in every culture–some more than others, but this isn't about race. It's about eliminating the garbage so the rest of us can afford to live.

    It's not the racial makeup of the country I'm worried about, it's the demographic and economic makeup. Most of these monorities that are having kids are poor and uneducated in greater numbers than the people they are displacing. That means there's a bigger chance for a relative increase in the percentage of poor , uneducated people in the future., This will create even bigger income inequality and a bigger demand for government services.

    It all fits nicely in the Dems grand plan. Create a welfare state where people need big government to care for them. A government controlled by Dems.

        Correct, Democrats want to increase funding for education. They have done that religiously.

We've only spent too much money.

        Poverty is inter-generational. If you have poor uneducated parents, their offspring have a much greater chance of also being poor. That is why this is problematic for our country.

      Its because of a tax code that rewards you for having kids, and generally those that can ill afford them have them. You are right. more kids is more money. However, it means more expense to society, you know, the 1%. Why should you get tax breaks for having kids when you are going to require more schools to be built, more teachers to be paid (including pensions after 20 years) more "free" health care? Your taxes should go UP for each child, not down. One thing the poor and downtrodden can do, is count the pennies on their paycheck and handouts. let the people who can actually support children have them. But hey, this is the US, we will take them all in, let them plop a kid here, then we give them money.

I mean, in 1967 we hit the 200 million population point. 35 yrs later we are hitting 310 million, and it has NOT been from increased life spans in the indigenous population. Think about that. In just 50 years, our population grew 110 million. That increase is larger than nearly every sitting population of nearly every country in the world right now.

        "Indigenous status is not relevant. Less than 25% of all Native Americans are pure blood meaning most have either European, African or Asian blood as well native American blood so very few are indigenous. Indigenous only has meaning when the dominant group wants to give land back to a people –Whites are not indigenous to Europe either But thousands of years later, we grant that through migration, people have taken over and that is their homeland. In the case of the US–whites and blacks have migrated here and cohabited with Native people–after generations of being here, indigenous status means nothing, what matters is that a certain race is slowly going extinct and what can we do to stop it–(and we DO/SHOULD want to stop it)

    Well done all my Hispanic brethren. Following the catholic church's archaic stance of forbidding any kind of birth control will eventually make you the majority in the U.S. Keep 'em coming. I have a contract with McDonald's to keep supplying them with employees.

    Why do you think Liberals have never ever wanted to do anything about immigration, legal or illegal. We are fast tracked to becoming third world country, especially when so many births are from failed cultures and societies. but hey, let's tax the producers and take care of them all. Alot of our problems in this country can be directly attributed to these births. No one talks about it, because the mainstream media and the Liberals will try to label you as rascist or bigot, but time to talk the truth. Our country is going down the tubes and it is not coming back, no matter who we elect President this go round. Obama will just take it down faster.

      Yes, Scott. Liberals will try to label you a racist. And do you know why? Because what you've posted right here and now as your honest opinion is the definition of racism. Don't believe me? Here's the dictionary definition of the word "racism":

      "A belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others."

      All those "failed cultures" coming here trying to spread their non-whiteness, right? Perhaps you'd like us to change the meaning of the word so that you can feel more comfortable? Would that help?

    The politicians have ruined this country by allowing the hispanics to come in and get free medical care, welfare, free schooling. They get paid under the table so they pay no taxes. They don't pay their hospital bills, their children get a free education. The democrats refuse to change the amendment that if you birth a baby here, you are American. It is absurd and we need a change. Pelosi's home state is in ruins.

      Did you ever stop top consider who are paying the Latinos once they are here? It is the Americans who pay them under-the- table low wages to do the work Americans won't do. So in essence, it is the Americans who are not paying taxes thus defrauding the government and their own people. It is the Americans who are reaping the benefits of the Latino presences here. So education, nourishment and health care should be considered a trade off. People should stop being so narrow minded and look at the big picture. I am sure each and every American, in someway, shape or form, plays a part in this. Casting stones is oh so easy and convenient isn't it?
