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."

      If there are more whites on welfare it's because STATISTICALLY there are currently many more adult whites in USA. Forgot to use 'statistics' in that regard, right? However, when these white babies are grown they should expect affirmative action to hand them college placements and jobs just like the minorities get now. By the way, since USA is dumping tens of thousands of Mu-slims into our country every year plus their birth rate, what kind of country do you think we are heading for in the future? Europe is already discovering that multiculturalism doesn't work. Some cultures are better and ours is definitely better without Sharia Law.

      Hispanic is just an ethnic group, not a race, from my understanding.

        I don't think Derrick disagrees with you. Italians weren't considered white by the American public for a long time. My grandmother had to break up with her Italian boyfriend in High School, because her family didn't believe in "race mixing". Although today we obviously know Italians are Caucasian, it seems like it's the same craziness that is revolving around the term "Hispanic" like you pointed out.

    They assimilate, retain much of their rich culture and contribute not only hard work but their vast intelligence.

    Everyone else still wants to act like they are 'Fighting the Power' and are taking something that belongs to them.

      Well under 40, professional, father and all around good guy. I have racial issues. As a white man, I have to bow down to you people, due to the transgressions of my ancestors some 200 years ago. Minorities think they are owed something, because of their past. Here's a brain buster, at one point in history, we have all been the minority, at one point in history, we have all been oppressed on some level.

      No I do care about racism and just like racial profiling, I don't see one problem with it. Don't want to be looked down upon by society, then stand up for yourself. Stereotypes exist for a reason and every culture, race and creed has them. However, some cultures have become pariahs on the rest of us and it has to stop. But it won't and you will continue to breed classless, lawless offspring until the USA is no better than Afghanistan.

      Please, speak for your own hoodie generation, but don't speak for me or mine.

      Actually Jason. History would seem to bear this out. In 1960, the USA was almost 90% white with a discriminated minority of blacks. At that time, the USA was, by far the most powerful country in the History of man. The US has been in a steady decline since Civil Rights and Ted Kennedy's immigration act. Ironically enough, hispanics enjoy many of the civil rights fought for by black americans without having suffered through slavery or Jim Crow.

Upward class mobility and everyone's income grew (not just the 1%) from 1940 – mid 1980s. After that, not so much.

      This is a ridiculous statement where you assume that SAT and ACT scores are a measurement of intelligence? You don't even need to take the SAT if you're not going to college. It is a measurement of how well you do taking a test. It is for this reason that you can consistently do better as you learn to gauge answering questions. Only college bound students take both (including the SAT II). It might just be your teaching that drives down SAT and ACT scores apparently, maybe think before you type on a public board?

Numbers are fun! When you want to argue 'for' your point, you add. When you want to argue against a fact, you divide. The most fun of them all are percentages; hypothetically speaking, definitely not far-fetched, 37% of whites on welfare out of 262,100,000 = 97.1 million ; 34.5% out of 37.5 million blacks would be 12.9 million, if this country were purely black and white. Then if you don't like those numbers, what's next? You measure ratios. In my Rick Santorum voice: "One in 2.7 whites receive assistance whereas one in 2.9 of blacks receive assistance. I mean, that's a staggering number since there are so fewer blacks in this country, and I don't want blah people to receive benefits off the backs of hardworking white people.

      Popstar, Your problem is that you don't go far enough. The 'white' race isn't race. It's a color. We all know that true Aryan stock is the only race destined and qualified to rule the world. Why should you accept race mix – allowing Italians to mix with Irish, allowing Slavs to mix with the English, or god forbid, brutish Russians mixing with the pure holy Aryan race of the Fatherland. You're probably one of those untermensch drones trying to better their position by riding on the coattails of the ubermensch. What are you? Some pathetic breed like Irish or Italian? You probably have a little Slav blood in you, don't you? You are mongrel vermin and will be amoung the first against the wall when the true sons of the glorious Tutons take their rightful place.

    Jon,
    Statistics can be used to show many things to many people. The fact is there are good and bad in all races and socioeconomic classes. I feel sorry for you and much sorrier for your children. My mother taught me to never judge a book by its cover. I have grown up surrounded by people of all classes, races, creeds and religions and it has been great and rewarding. What a lonely and sad existence to waste all your time excluding and hating people who might have turned out to have a positive influence on you and your children.

    "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.

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.

        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"...

      ftroy01, you are right on the money! Cesspool it is. The US MUST tighten the South border and deport the illegals already here. The make up of this beautiful Country has changed so much with Obama. God forbid he gets re-elected!! Keep up the fight!

      Ever given any thought to the fact that the radical, bigoted people of your generation inspired a truly opposite and dramatic response from our generation. This includes liberal reaction, as well as racism from all possible groups ...
      I can't, and won't, say that I agree with your assessment of how much time you have left on Earth; but, I will say we won't miss your counterproductive opinions.

    Get welfare checks,SS Disability, food stamps, Medicaid, CHIP for kids, free cell phones and a ride to the polling booth by the White Panthers. Sounds good to me.

    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. THAT IS ONE OF THE MAIN FACTORS THAT HAS CONTRIBUTED TO THE RECESSION THAT WE FACE TODAY.

        Wrong. I'm just as much a Native American as any Indian living on a reservation.

        My great-grandparents were immigrants from Ireland. Me? I'm native. You? You're a clown.

      Wrong ... just wrong. Please check your facts. The recession was because large banks were allow to invest in real estate and buy and the selling loans bad loans to these banks by people who made $ through signing people up without regard to their ability repay.

    It may have already been said, but we (as whites) should think twice about complaining too much about affirmative action, racial quotas, etc. - because someday we (whites) may depend on these same laws to be employed.

    Scary, isn't it?

      Race doesn't make hate; fear does. There's nothing wrong with celebrating our differences. If we were all the same we would be like penguins.

      IS THAT WHAT YOU WANT? A BUNCH OF DAM PENGUINS RUNNING AROUND DOING STUFF AT PLACES??

    If I, as a "white" individual, were to "self-deport" it would have nothing to do with any minority group. It would be to get away from the racism, hate and ignorance spewed by the small yet obnoxiously vocal white majority.

      If your a white individual and not a legal US citizen feel free to self-deport back to you country of legal citizen ship.
      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.

    The headline "Census: Less white babies born" is not correct. It should be "Census: Fewer white babies born"

      They did mean "less." And my daughter, who was born pasty white and who has to suntan cause she doesn't like it, is going to be happy to hear that babies are coming out less white now. ;)
