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."

    When I was in school (1964 to 1976) we were told repeatedly by our liberal college brain washed teachers that "the world has too many people to support". If we keep having large families we would all starve to death. The new comers haven't been brain washed into thinking that way so 6 to 8 kids is no big deal. This is not really a surprise.

    "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. English as a second language would be an educational priority."

    The article is about babies. If you are born here, and grow up here, no matter what color you are or language your parents might speak, you're going to grow up learning to read, write, and speak English. Where was all the concern for interpreters and schooling when minority babies were 49.5% of the newborns in 2010? Did those babies not need interpreters? What? If you're black or Asian or Native American or native Hawaiian or Inuit you are genetically incapable of learning to speak English? That statement really reveals some underlying racial stereotyping on the part of the author.

    How is it, that when an article mentions ALL minorities, the comments on these boards still only attack Blacks in America? How does "minority" default to Black? White racists and bigots will be stunned when another group takes power. This group will probably be Asian, since they are smarter, technologically savvy, and know how to pass off a fake smile and bow while their plotting to throw you in a mud hole. Based on the comments I read here, American Blacks and the ENTIRE continent of Africa (sarcasm) is worthless and will never amount to anything positive, unless its HIV. You focus solely on those who you feel are degenerate. Keep doing this, you'll somehow miss the uprising from the other groups when they hit you in the back of the head and take over.

        No, stereotypes. The entire statement was sarcastic. All Blacks in America and somehow the entire continent of Africa (hence, go back to Africa statements as if that's a BAD thing) is referenced as dumb, immoral, diseased, parasitic, criminal, lowlife, baby breeders. Even when there are Blacks that don't fit this stereotype the comments make sure to say that's only because of government assistance and affirmative action.

        Yet, all other minorities, especially Asians in America and the continent of Asia itself is the complete opposite and considered to be; moral, smart, techie, innovative, and passive. Stereotypes on these boards are then backed up with statistical evidence that is supposed to make these stereotypes true. Therefore, White racist's (the trolls on these boards) SHOULD NOT be moved by Blacks in one bit. Since White RACISTS (I'm not talking about all White people) generally dislike all minorities, the minority they would have to worry about taking "power" (since staying in power is their concern) WOULD NOT be Black, by their own admission. It would be the group they least expect because they are deemed "passive"...

    It really isnt about the complexity of ones skin color concerning this issue at hand. Lets face the facts that AMERICANS by ancestry in AMERICA (at own will or not at own will) are being out-numbered because the government needs to start enforcing the word NO at the Borders of this country. The Average AMERICAN CITIZEN can not go to other foreign countries and get or have the RED CARPET laidout to them like AMERICA do to foreigners when they enter AMERICA. Also many foreigners in AMERICA get so much and give so little back to AMERICA, foreigners send most back to their country.

      However if you are a legal US (born in the US) citizen (not naturalized) how do you self-deport?
      You always have the option to emigrate somewhere else and rescind your US citizenship, however that is not self-deporting.

    "Asians remain the fastest-growing minority racial group, with a 3% increase over last year’s population, to 18.2 million."

    That trend will continue. With China's one child per family policy, those that can will come to the United States to have their second and third babies.

      It is the other way around. The Chinese come here to go to school/work have a baby or two then go back to chine with the children then have their 1 child per family in China. It seems that children born outside of China do not count towards the 1 child per family. I got this from a few Chinese couples. Yes they were planing on having some children while in the US then going back home to have their last child. The children born outside of China will get to choose their citizenship when they turn 18.

      Asians of Chinese decent make up less than a quarter of that population. There are almost as many Filipinos and Indians. Unless the population of Chinese descent is having 7 children per woman and the rest is having 1, the One-Child policy is irrelevant or at least not a significant player in in this phenomenon.

    Its a known historical fact that every majority group has villianized the one they see coming after them. Scotts, italians, english, french, Jews have all had thier share of hatered while all hating blacks. So when every european ethnic group finally became "whites", its now hispanics that are bad. As a non-white, non-hispanic natualized citizen of this country, all I do is love this place for what it is and for what it has given me. And when you love something, you are loyal to it. You protect it. People who come to this place, given that a few are bad apples, mostly come here for opportunites that this place has to offer and can't thank their stars enough for that. We as Americans, need not be scared of each other but instead extend our hand to our fellow Americans in time of need. Believe me, everything else will fall into place. Fear and hatered on the other hand will only destroy US.

    Poor people, regardless of race, always have a higher rate of children than the rich, this has been true throughout human history.

They came here because they were poor, had large familes and were stuck at the bottom in the Old Country.

    It's funny to watch everyone mouthing off about skin color and how important it is. Wake up people, skin color is an evolutionary adaptation to a lack of sunlight. The genetic diversity in skin is FAR LESS than the genetic diversity between two siblings! Typical lack of education in the US leads to the standard uninformed opinions.

    You take a group of black people and leave them to breed in a northern country and in a few thousand years their skin will BECOME WHITE. Take a bunch of white people and drop them off in Africa to breed for a few thousand years and their skin will evolve to BECOME BLACK.

The democrats have been roughly the same for decades. The republicans have actually become more liberal than the days of Regan. If Congress really wanted this country to change the line item veto would of passed. That way none of this super long bills would have totally unrelated earmarks and laws placed into them. If Congress is going to vote on healthcare then vote on healthcare not healthcare with earmarks for corporations or states added in. It has and will be for a while about money. Plan and simple.

      At one time welfare was a whites only program. No one but whites could participate. Now everyone is allowed. Welfare should be eliminated in its current form. If you are not putting into the system then you should not be taking from it. That is not racial, that is economics. If I am working two jobs and still can't make it, then I should get some assistance, if and only if I can PROVE where all money is going. Nice cars, cell phones, cable TV are all "extra". Food, water, shelter and in this day and age the Internet are must haves. By the way I am black, so before someone thinks I am some racist jerk, think again.

        If you require welfare recepients to verify where their income is going, then we really should do the same of the rich. If they say they need tax cuts in order to create jobs, we, as citizens, must verify that the only thing the rich does with any tax cuts is towards jobs. We cannot keep subsidizing the rich by giving them free money when we have a massive foreign debt created by the rich moving jobs overseas. The rich move jobs overseas, then somehow get others to agree that the foreign deficit is all of America's problem. No, it is not!!!!

    I understand the point you are trying to make but you are wrong. There is a higher number of Whites on welfare, but Blacks are way higher as a percentage of welfare recipients.

    The people who pay all the taxes can have less children because of all the taxes they have to pay. And those that don't work and pay no taxes sit around having children to get more money from the government–money that does not always to to the children. So, does this surprise us White Folk....heck no! I've worked my entire life, so now us white guys will be the minority and get paid back for all the work we've done all our lives. And the slugs??? Well, no more free-bees, there slacker!

        I’m curious why you believe except was meant instead of accept? Let’s use a synonym for except – exclude and replace the instances of “accept”

        “Get over it exclude it move on. That's what the natives did. Exclude that this country was taken by force. Exclude that karmas coming back around. At least it didn't need war or violence.”

        It doesn’t even work as satire or irony. It’s just plain incorrect.

    These statistics are misleading. Its not accounting for mixed race children. They count those who are born from a mixed family as the minority factor. If you are part Caucasian part African american then they lump that person into the African american column and not both. All this could mean is that children are being born more of a mixed race family. Remember as long as you have a minority blood line some where in you, you are automatically a minority in the statistics eye.
