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."

    We've actually allowed this to happen in the U.S., and that is what makes me angry more than anything. We decided to make it easy for generations of lazy people to collect food stamps, then it became full rent and utility payments, then we added daycare, cable, cell phones, and even taxi vouchers in some cities! We made it profitable for them to have more children that they could not support – giving them actual incentives to be causing more financial havoc on the taxpayer budget. Every once in a while you'll see a story make headlines and the government pounces on it, promising reform – the truth is, we're a country that reacts and does not draw a firm line and stick to principles. It's worse than ever with Obama in office.

      I don't know whether or not you went to college but if you had gone you would know that the US governmental structure requires that there be a group of people that rely on government assistance so that the government can control them, therefore making it much harder for low income persons to attain a better quality education, jobs and health care. To say that people are lazy because they rely on government assistance shows your ignorance. You are basing your opinion on false stereotypes. Please do the country a favor and educate yourself.

        I have worked all of my life, have gone to undergraduate and graduate school and took a typing course in high school.
        Just wanted to let you know that I have passed your condescending expectations for other comments.
        I am also well versed with history.
        Therefore, I am well aware of how and why welfare was started in this country and thank God for all of the people who needed it at the time. Are there tears in the system? Of course. In fact, it was the Clinton administration who started making modifications to the welfare program with incentives for people to get off of it.
        Statistics may point to certain ethnic groups that are on government aid, but most certainly there are plenty of caucasians that abuse the system as well.
        I resent your insinuations that you know everything about this issue when you clearly do not.
        Welfare was created to pull people out of the dregs of one of the worst economic times in U.S. history. Historically African Americans and Hispanic Americans have been victimized by things like Jim Crow laws that has slowed the progress of these socioeconomic and ethnic groups. Things are clearly changing.
        This caucasian, life time working, middle class woman was thrilled to vote for a President of both African and Caucasian origin. I voted for the smart one. I plan on doing it again and hope that Americans follow suit.

        joco–Clinton may have presided over the cuts and proposals of welfare reform, but the actual stipulations that are still in place including that welfare will NEVER pay any money for over 2 children and all mothers must seek employment when Children reach age 6 was the brainchild and authorship of the Majority GOP controlled Congress in 1996–don't get it twisted.

        Due to this requirement, for the first time in decades, people were able to break the generational hold of welfare and it was done against a backdrop of protests and anger from the Democratic party AND from the Welfare recipients who were afraid of the crutch they had grown up depending on.

        I believe the "free ride" Kay is referring to are all the subsidies from food to electricity and heating, to roads, bridges, public schools and hospitals that help to underwrite all of our lives to such an extent that none of us actually pays outright for a lot of what we use and take for granted and the condescension in discussing a persons typing on a blog or dismissing their post just because YOU disagree with it is pedantic in the extreme.

        I seriously doubt the amount you have paid in taxes over the years actually equal the amounts you have benefited from for police, school, hospital, OSHA, Worker's comp, unemployment benefits, roads, electricity, water, sewage, farm subsidies and low cost of food and gas, traffic lights, social security or other services the government will or has provided to you or your family. I have also always paid taxes and my taxes are over 100K each year, and after calculating the cost to bring power to a property that is even 500 feet from the road and knowing how the government underwrites most things, even I don't believe I have "Paid" for all the things I benefit from when I pay taxes–also consider the bargaining and negotiating buying power of the US –which is based on our standing as a global power which in turn is based on our GNP and GDP–and you begin to realize that if you had to provide EACH of these services on your own, continually year after year–you could NEVER EVER afford them. The road repairs and clearing each year alone (just to your residence and whereever you choose to drive) would be more than most of us make in a decade.

        Kay, I would really like to know what sources you refer to with the "average" welfare recipient only collecting for a few years. I just can't believe that. Also, the taxes that these welfare recipients pay are fully refunded to them, because they "qualify" for so many of the deductions for low income – they literally not only get the taxes refunded but then also get a hefty refund on top of that – thousands of dollars, in fact. I have a close friend who works for one of the social welfare departments as a senior administrator and it makes her sick to see the abuse of the system, but her job is to offer what the law allows. Unless you can tell me where you are getting your information, I consider it to be nothing but pointless verbiage. I've gotta call 'em as I see 'em.

      Less than 4 million people nation wide of ALL races is on full welfare and according to the stats 75% of those are WHITE and have always been white. Less than 14 million people receive food stamps and medicaid–and that is not even 10% of all Americans. about 25% of blacks are in poverty vs 15% of whites and 38% of Hispanics. In real numbers, that is about 10 million blacks, 20 million Hispanics and 27 million whites on food stamps and medicaid which is not considered welfare but actually are an arm of poverty.

      White people get food stamps too. And by the way, the single biggest increase in food stamp spending came under W.

      "...the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food and Nutrition service month-by-month figures going back to January 2001 show that under President George W. Bush the number of recipients rose by nearly 14.7 million. Nothing before comes close to that. And under Obama, the increase so far has been 14.2 million. To be exact, the program has so far grown by 444,574 fewer recipients during Obama's time in office than during Bush's."

    Great, now can we get the Minorities to actually pay their "fair share" towards costs of the USA, and to stop raising their children off rest of our backs (stop living on welfare). The USA is finished / destroyed because of this. Most minorities don't pay income taxes to support our Federal Govern, instead are parasites whether on at least some welfare, or govern. jobs. So USA will end up bankrupt.

    I'm a teacher at a predominately black elementary school and I can attest to the fact that the black children are not suffering from a lack of educational opportunities. We teachers get a bad rap for not doing our jobs well, and sometimes it's warranted, but for the most part it's not fair because we're responsible for teaching kids who simply don't care. Their problems are centered in their own homes where their parents are teaching them that white people are not to be trusted and they don't need an education because the government will take care of them. Their children do and say horrible things on a daily basis and when I call their parents it's always the same thing: they could care less and are angry to be bothered by a white person. I was a naive to all these issues before I started teaching in the black community but now I'm absolutely certain that their problems originate in their own homes.

    yeah... a black man did not invent the peanut, George Washington Carver, whom I assume you are referencing, encouraged poor southern farmers to grow the crop because it was nutritionally beneficial. The plant has been around for centuries.

      Technically the old testament says to be fruitful and multiply, this means you. Of course, it also says that god doesn't want crippled, the blind, sick or impure in his house or making offerings, and to abandon people who had coitus on their wives period. And stone them if they were shaking up on her period.

      Focus on the good if one leads their life by the bible, or at least consult a Rabbi from time to time on matters of the old testament. The stories are allegoric more often than not, and literal interpretations will make for conflicting faith.

    I grew up in a town that was all white. The only black girl was the daughter of a football player. I received a great education, there was no crime whatsoever, and the place was picture perfect. Unfortunately, I moved out when I became an adult and moved to a town close by, where all the whites would go shop and dine, but everyone who lived there was a minority. Hispanics, Blacks and Asians. I was the only white person on my floor. The police were always breaking up fights, some of my stuff was even stolen by my black neighbor, who I was nothing but cordial to. I would always hear my neighbors talking about how they don't want to get jobs because they would rather collect welfare checks. I hated my town growing up because it was so bland, but I can't wait to move back! My experience in such polar opposite environments can only allow me to draw the conclusion that this new statistic, if accurate, marks the beginning of a decline in civilization in America.

      England also accomplished some of its war aims: it had successfully defended its Protestant revolution; it maintained control of Ireland; by supporting the Protestant Dutch, albeit with limited forces and very little success, and by the diversion of substantial Spanish resources, it had played a part in averting a complete Spanish reconquest of the Netherlands (seen as a threat); and by supporting Henry IV, had ensured that France would remain friendly.

Thats like blaming the ocean when there is no rain... Nature has a way of exterminated different animal and plant species... if they do not evolve... Why should humans be any different?

How about minority as defined by white, non black, non asian, non hispanic, non slavic, non anything other than white. Whites have been moving towards minority status for years. IF YOU ARE IN THE MINORITY, YOU ARE NOT IN THE MAJORITY. This article and the way it's written is a testament to the dumbing down of America as a whole. Idiots.

      In the Appalachian belt, over 90% of the inhabitants are on welfare and over 85% of those are white. Did you forget them? They are also having more babies than avg for white people. White people are becoming sterile–it is not that they work so hard they can't have kids (many try to adopt and end up adopting other nationality babies including black ones) it is that many cannot physically reproduce. Which why there is a baby shortage for white couples –even a shortage from other countries.

    Uh so funny story. They actually predicted this to happen in 2010, not 2011. Meaning minority birthrates are growing more slowly than we thought. Also minorities are going to be having children at the same rate as whites by 2020 if current abortion and childlessness rates are to be believed, so the next couple of years we're going to hit a "high water" of minority births and then see non-hispanic whites become a majority of births again.

    Also there's the funny fact that five of my cousins are minorities because they are "hispanic and white" on the census. I don't know if something's wrong with my eyes, but they don't really look like mexicans to me. They look pretty.... well European is what I'd call it. 10% of births are to hispanic whites. Meaning that about 60% of births are white.

    This whole "spaniards are minorities" thing is kind of stupid, since germans and english and irish are also all minorities if we're taking white people out and singling them out by ethnicity.

    I would say that by 2050 America will be whiter than it is now not "more diverse" and "darker".

      Interesting point. I am Caucasian and my wife is from Mexico, and my kids both look Caucasian. Many Mexicans have Caucasian genes from the Spanish and French and apparently the gene for skin color is dominant for lighter skin in many cases. Immigration from Mexico has stalled out due to the economy. You may well be right!

      Eh, who even knows what's going to be culturally "white" in 2050. I'm "white". But not all of my ancestors were European, there's 5%-ish this and that blended in from 17th century colonial mixing. There are plenty of other "white" people out there who could say the same. And a lot of the kids that the census is counting as minorities are majority "white", sometimes it's hard to dig the truth out of the statistics. The one-droppers can worry about a future as an oppressed minority if they want to but it seems more likely that we're headed toward something like a Brazilian definition of white rather than a marginalization of light skinned people.

    I made some changes on my previous post on this subject. Regarding the possible explanations and reasons for the situation/subject of the article. The way I see them, there are about 10 Top Possibilities or reasons. The first and the second are based on facts. One thru eight are based on personal experience and a lot of people I know and have met over the years. Nine thru eleven are intended as a sarcastic satire, an exageration. Nine is something we see in the News almost weekly. Of course the Top Possibility is number twelve. No pun intended!

    1- White women abort.
    2- White wome use contraceptives.
    3- White people are or have become sterile.
    4- White people prefer to have pets specially dogs rather than children.
    5- White people call their pets, specially dogs; baby.
    6- White people prefer luxurys (Ferraris, Mansions, Pools) over children.
    7- White people don't love children.
    8- White people don't like children.
    9- White people are killing their children
    10- White people are eating their children due to eating disorders.
    11- White people are feeding their children to their dogs.
    12- Because all of the above, God's judgement is that white people don't deserve children.

    Wow, the ignorant comments on here amaze me...

    does no one realize that Euro/Whites, in building this country (on the backs of slaves after having wiped out the Native population), justified dehumanizing blacks for 400 years? and even after slavery, continued with the jim crow era and consistently disenfranchised people of color from being full citizens of the US..when those people of color helped to build it??? Whites brought slaves over while at the same time colonized and forced themselves into other nations leaving native peoples of those lands (e.g. mexico, Philippines, Asia, pacific Islands, etc) no choice but to leave, not because they all wanted to leave their home, but because America forced itself in, stole lands and raped them of their resources while at the same time claiming itself to be a nation of "justice" and "opportunity"??

    so considering the history of the injustices of whites in building this nation...you honestly think that those people of color today who are in poverty, on welfare, etc..just happen to be that way because of their race or what have you??? it's ridiculous. the reality is, whites got a head start by oppressing all people who weren't a "pure, white race"..to be white is a social construction based on the racist fews towards anyone who wasn't "white".

    some of your arguments of whites being a naturally "better" race makes me laugh hysterically.

Lots of little kids also hit their siblings! You wanna tell us how much closer to the "same as us" those little kids could possibly get than their brother or sister?

        But what about babies showing awareness of and preference for their own race? Guess what? You're not even close.

        Yes. Studies have shown that...yes...when 3- 6 month olds were shown pictures of people of their same race and a different one, the babies 'preferred' the same race.

        But!!! Later studies actually show that babies don't really show a preference of their *own* race...but, rather, the race of the people they're used to seeing!!

        Yup. Nothing to do with genetics. Everything to do with who they see all the time!

        Newborns? Well, they don't care one way or another.

        3 month olds? They prefer the race of their primary caretaker...unless they are regularly exposed to people of different races, and then they show *no* preference!

        Turns out this "genetic default setting" you erroneously want to believe exists is actually based on nothing more than the ethnicity of faces viewed within these little ones' visual environment! Oh gee, darn. Turns out they simply respond more positively to what they're used to seeing. And when they're used to seeing multiple ethnicities...they have zero preference.

        Your statement is probably true for life in general, but it is certainly not true for college and graduate school admissions.

Why should a black student growing up poor in the inner city, raised by a single parent who has only a high school (or less than high school) education get a scholarship to attend college, whereas a white student growing up poor in rural America, raised by a single parent who has only a high school (or less than high school) education can't go to college because they are ineligible for these scholarships, thanks to their skin color? Affirmative action is racial discrimination, plain and simple, and it has done a good deal to harm race relations in our country.

        What would this country have been like if the federal government did not force states to allow black children to attend public schools or use public restrooms, water foutains, etc? Today, young people only see a small piece of a nasty puzzle and feel as thoughy something is being taken away from them and "given" to people of color. Acts of rectification may indeed seem unfair, but allow for a level playing field.

        @John: No, affirmative action **allowed** (past tense) for a level playing field. Race-based affirmative action was highly necessary in the 1960's, but by now, things have had time to balance out. I should also say that I am all for affirmative action based on socioeconomic status; however, economically disadvantaged white kids need a leg up every bit as much as economically disadvantaged black kids do. Both groups experience the same struggles and challenges to their education, and to discriminate between them based on skin color is racism.

        @John: As far as "rectification" is concerned, I don't think that taking an eye for an eye "rectifies" anything, especially if you don't take the second eye from the first offender, but rather from another offender of their same race who was born after the crime was committed!

        Kate, do you really believe black people should have caught up by now? What about red lining? What about denying them their GI benefits? How do you expect them to catch up to the multigenerational wealth of white people when the viscous cycle never ends?

        John, has it never occurred to you that there are quite a lot whites who do not have multigenerational wealth??? If you had read what I wrote, you would have noticed that I was NOT discussing the whites who have wealth as being the ones who need a "leg up." I am not speaking about GI bills; I am speaking of education, and in the educational field, poor whites currently have far MORE disadvantages than poor blacks do because of racist affirmative action policies. Two wrongs do not make a right.

        No, Kate.

        Affirmative action policies DO NOT result in more scholarship money for students of color than they do for white students of the same academic achievement and ability levels and the same socioeconomic status.

        And...no...affirmative action policies DO NOT screw over your poor rural white student in regards to getting scholarship money to go to college...and it's totally inappropriate that you should make that claim. Passing on old wives' tales as "fact" can cause harm. Often cause a great deal of harm...particularly when they foster racism.

        The fact is, Kate, that white students currently make up less than 66% of the college population, they get over 76% of the scholarship money. Not only that, but white students are 40% more likely to get a scholarship than minority students!

        So...would you please explain to us how these facts work with your claim that "students of color" get more scholarship money?? Or explain how your poor rural white student "can't go to college because they are ineligible for these scholarships, thanks to their skin color"?

        Please let go of the myths and urban legends, OK?

        Kay, please let go of YOUR urban myths and legends. My claims are based not on myths, but on fact. I recently considered applying to Masters' programs, and found that i couldn't afford to go because for a number of programs, the ONLY scholarships that were available were for students of color. My high GRE scores and 4.0 GPA left me ineligible for scholarships because of my skin color. I am sure I am not the only student to have this experience!

        Also quoted from the same source, based on a statistical analysis of the Baylor data:

        "Checking the African-American box on your Baylor Law application is worth $9575/year, all else being equal; Hispanic heritage is worth $7023. In other words, if you were a white with your heart set on a scholarship to Baylor Law, and a magical genie offered you the choice of increasing your LSAT score by 4 points or changing your skin color, you'd be better off financially with the latter option."

    Our nation may have been founded by whites ( after they robbed the Indians ), but it was built by immigrants from all over the world, together, as citizens. This has always been an immigrant nation, and the dilution of majority has been occurring since the beginning.

    The United States is mixed cultures...it's a melting pot. I'm whie, and I can't imagine the absolute horror in being surrounded by just one culture, race, perspective. Diversity is not only important to the country's success, it's inevitable, and in 50 years the majority present will be the minority, and in a thousand years, everyone will look the same anyway. Who cares.

        "Although organs are not matched according to race/ethnicity, and people of different races frequently match one another, all individuals waiting for an organ transplant will have a better chance of receiving one if there are large numbers of donors from their racial/ethnic background. This is because compatible blood types and tissue markers—critical qualities for donor/recipient matching—are more likely to be found among members of the same ethnicity."

    Peoples dislike of different races has really nothing to do with skin color. Most whites don't have much problem at all with asians, do they? Yet last time I checked, asians are pretty "brown" too. It has to do with cultural traits and characteristics that we come to despise about certain "minority" groups. To pretend that the only differences between races is skin color is naive and ignorant– and it defies all real-world experience and logic. Yet we get fed this politically correct crap constantly.

        Why is it you think that whites do better in their system? Could it be they got to keep their GI Benefits after world war II, could it be they received subsidized home loan, unlike people of color and women? White people weren't redlined out of the suburbs. The ascension of the middle class after the war, a college educated new middle class can thank it's creation to affirmative action programs like the GI Bill. This isn't a distortion, it's a reality.
