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."

    I knew this was coming. I'm not thrilled by the trend. Not because I'm racist or hate-filled. I don't mind sliding into a minority category. I wish, though, the growth was coming from Asian-Americans, not from Hispanic-Americans. Why? Simple: Hispanic-Americans simply do not value education the way white Americans or Asian-Americans do. CNN themselves ran a story about a study showing that even after 5 generations, Hispanic-Americans have not climbed the education ladder appreciably. It's a cultural thing... Asians and Caucasians value education; Hispanics and Blacks simply place far, far less value on education. I know this is an uncomfortable truth. It is, though, the truth. I hope there's change in this regard.

CNN themselves ran a story stating that even after 5 generations in this country, Hispanics have made no appreciable education gains. CNN, again, ran another story authored by a black teacher in California saying it is still the case in the black culture that someone striving to do well academically will be taunted. These are root causes; there are volumes of data that state the outcome. Sorry... I know the truth can hurt or at least be uncomfortable.

      I totally agree with you. Education, innovation, technology are the driving force for human sociaty, aslo the reason that America stay up front in this world.

We can't count on the jobs such as cleaning ladies, sports stars and pop singers to lead america forward. We need scientists, engerneers, businessmen, lawyer and docs. They all come from education. and let's face the fact that african american and hispanish do not value education as much as Asian and White. This has nothing to do with skin color. It is the culture you come from. With that being said, I do like hispenic culture very much personally. I think they are warm hearted happy people.

      I agree with your comment it is the truth I live in Arizona and I have a 5 year old dauhhter in kindergarten. My daughter's teacher would tell me how great it is to have her in class; I spend hours with her doing homework and teaching her how to read, write etc. But at her school majority Hispanic, black I can tell that their parents don't care at home even her teacher states this. I grew up in a white school and got a better education because black students didn't care as much (their obviously are exceptions) next year I'm moving my daughter to an AZ top 10 elementary which is sad to say mainly White and Asian. If you haven't realized I'm black and I fall into that category of exception. I spend a lot of time, money and effort to make sure my daughter gets the best education, which is also the reason why I haven't had another child. You're not being racist when it's the truth!

      As I minority myself I can tell there are a lot of things we would never agree on, but I have to say I find this to be true. One thing I have to disagree about blacks is that in my struggles through different colleges I have found that a number of blacks do attend but not African Americans...more blacks from other countries. If you visit some hospitals you will see that black doctors are mostly Haitians or blacks from Africa. Caribbean blacks are very receptive to education and tend to blaze their own trails. I do find that especially hispanics from PR have no use for education. The AA will not even try to speak proper English...ugh! I am black so all those who are ready to call names can stand back!

        I observe the same thing as you. I have so much respect for the people who came from Africa and make their way to docs and lawyers. I often see them send their children to good school as well. But I see a lot less of this in hispanic and afriacan americans. I saw some people comments about govenment didn't give them enough oppunity for education. I wonder why Asian as part of the minoirity can on the other hand. I heard and saw so many Asian children from immigrants even illegalsfamily, whose parents work at the reseraunts for 7 bucks/hour, go to Harvard. On the contry, we see hispanic and african american teenage girls got pregant again and again at age 14. Yes, they contribute to th ework force for KFC/McDonalds. But can we rely on that for the future of this contry?

      Really, do you really think that's true. Hispanics account for the number 1 largest minority group. If you take away all of the other minorities they still pale in comparison to (whites). You do the same with blacks and they are even smaller. You have to take all the groups together to come up with the numbers you need to make 51%. Minorities in their own groups are smaller. Blacks numbers right now are even more diluted because a dark skinned Cuban or Dominican can be considered Hispanic which really makes no sense considering we are talking about race not language. In that case you would need to exclude German, French, Italian and many other people who make up those racial demographic numbers. For that matter some Hispanics would have to be considered white. Think about this do they say because a person speak German they are not a white American? but a person who speaks Spanish who is Caucasoid in race is a non-white? So in short, what was your point and who were you referring to because for sure the rest of us have no clue. My grand mother was half Irish and black and My grandfather was German and black and they had 10 kids. That should really screw up the number right.

      There would be no drug dealers if there wasn't a demand, which the Mexicans did not create. Good little capitalists that they are, they saw a market and took advantage of it. We need to legalize drugs in order to control them.

        So true! Most buyers of Mexican drugs are Americans. We're the ones giving the demand. They're just the ones supplyling it. Most people in Mexico can't afford to buy the drugs...not much of a drug addiction problem in Mexico. The ones who can afford to buy them and become addicts...Americans.

        The reason many Hispanics near border towns have so many babies is because in certain parts of the sourthern U.S., they are actually catered to – they aren't forced to learn English the way Hispanics living in Northern parts need to. They have access to medical and welfare as long as their children were born here in the U.S. Most American born Hispanics I know are hard-working, educated individuals, who believe it or not, feel the same way many white Americans do towards illegal immigrants. They are American just as much as any white person. They fly their American flags on their front porches, too. It's many of the illegal immigrants that come over and do nothing to contribute to their society. And then there are those who come over and are hard workers, just as most of our ancestors did. It's not about race – it's about education and socio-economic status and how willing you are to become an American and contribute positively to society.

    Multiculturalism and diversity pushing are forms of subtle racism. This is so because multiculturalism seeks to strip people of their individuality, and mandate that they must conform to the, "norms," of a group. Perfect example. I have a friend who is of Puerto Rican descent, and has a Spanish sounding last name. Other Hispanic people always assume he speaks Spanish. He does not. He actually speaks fluent Russian, because that's what is best for his desired line of work. Yet other Hispanic people look down on him and see him as disrespecting his heritage. He considers himself American, and that's good enough for him. Yet, because of multiculturalism, society has decided he must speak Spanish. Multiculturalism=Racism.

      Basically, white children will have a similar experience to children of other races in this country. They will start to feel what all of the other kids have always felt. If simply not being the majority gives you pause, just think how it feels to be a true minority. Maybe that feeling won't be so difficult when we are all in the same boat.

Non White Population may be on rise but the White population is not on declinne there is a huge gap in numbers between the two groups. Non Whites(Hispanics, Blacks, Asians, South East Asians, rest of the world ) do not speak one langauge formula so English is not under threat here. All non white kids in US speak English. There was a similar article in UK couole of years back claiming The non white population will super exceed the White population in coming years and that did not happend/is not happening. White population is not on decline, they are doing very well witht heir numbers and the Non White population is growing but not alarming.

    My dad is a terrible bigot and always has been. But even he had this to say (begrudgingly) about the Hispanic population. "They come here and take the jobs the white people don't want and they all share living quarters with other Hispanics while saving to bring the rest of their families here. On the average they work hard and they love their kids and take good care of them. They might be poor, but they aren't afraid of getting their hands dirty. It might take a few generations, but they're going to over take us simply because they don't see themselves as above hard work."

    I'm hesitant to speak in generalities about any population, but I can speak to the misconception that all Hispanics come here for is our public assistance. That's simply a myth put out by those who need a scapegoat for the trouble our country is in. The fact of the matter is–only 17% of the total population of Hispanics are on public assistance, while 38% of Caucasians are.

    While there are illegal immigrants and, yes, there are a lot of them, the majority of the Hispanics who are here are legal immigrants and for what it's worth–the number of illegal Hispanic immigrants IS dropping–in part because of the economy and in part because of stiffer laws being put into place to prevent hiring them.

      While I agree with you that many of the immigrants who come here are hard-working and not afraid to get their hand "dirty" with manual labor jobs, I do disagree with you that most are legal immigrants. This country has nearly 50 million illegal immigrants. Most do not pay any taxes (they also get underpaid since they're paid off the books), yet their children who are born here still need to be educated in the public school system. Because of this unbalance between children who need to be educated and parents who don't pay taxes, we have a deficit in spending for education. The easiest solution to me would be to give all illegal immigrants an amnesty period to register with INS and become U.S. citizens. That way they would have equal rights and pay, but also pay their fair share of taxes. If they want to be here for the "pursuit of happiness" then let's give them a fair chance, especially their children.

      Hispanics do not take the jobs US citizens refuse to do. That is a myth. What jobs have gone undone because US citizens would not do them? None! The difference is that employers do not have to pay benefits to an illegal immigrant, thus, saving them tons of money. They do not pay benefits, retirement, etc. THAT is why they come here illegally, not to take jobs no one else will do.

    I do not understand all of the negative xenophobic and anglocentric comments here. This is not an article about immigration or people coming to leach off of welfare systems, this is simply an article about demographic changes. For some time now the populations in Central and South America have been growing faster than the population in the U.S, as I am sure everyone knows the population in Asia has been skyrocketing and Africa has also seen substantial growth. Europe and the U.S have not though. This means that even with a constant amount of immigration the proportion of immigrants will slowly start to shift the balance away from Caucasian. Also whenever in history one nation has been doing better economically than another, people from the poorer come to the richer to work, this is a trend going back to the formation of countries themselves, and it is not about people leaching off of America and refusing to work. I welcome the demographic shift, if this changes anything it will change Americans' views to other races and build a more tolerant society.

Also Africa's population is far from booming since aids and hiv is ripping the continent apart. Asia's population is growing but China and India's population is growing older and may experiance a population decline. The problem with developing nations with high birth rates is that many of them cannot afford to take care of their people despite what you hear in the media life in central and South America is far from rosey.

      Typical amnesiac. You think for some reason that stating a FACT is not accepting responsibility? I know that's what a lot of republicans want to do, but many americans have not at all forgotten. Reminding everyone that Obama inheritted a recession is a fact, not blame. When you can't prove that someone stole your car, but have a hunch, then you can blame them for it.

      If it's been proven through facts that they stole your car, then it's no longer blame, it's the TRUTH! That's the difference. We can most certinly prove that POTUS Obama inheritted a recession from the republicans. He wasn't handed a patient with an ankle sprain. He was handed a patient with a gunshot wound to the heart. Huge difference.

      So yes, Obama is responsible for the country as POTUS. But he was not responsible for the massive sink hole that was dropped in his lap when he took office, that he stated many times would not be fixed over night.

        Wrong. Type O Blood is the original blood type of human beings. It can be used in any transfusions of any other blood type if another blood type isn't available. When early humans started to migrate from Africa, the birthplace of the human species, to other places, environmental pressures that include the types of climate, food, etc. came into play in the changing of blood types. First O, then came A, then came B, then came AB. The tracers found in the blood of ALL people have scientifically been proven to orignate from our original ancestors in Africa.

    Two points.

    This is one reason why so many conservatives are becoming angrier and angrier. They are witnessing the slow end of 400 years of white dominance in America, and they don't like it. It's why there is so much rage on the right-the mostly white conservative population is scared to death of being a minority, and perhaps (although I think foolishly) believing that their sins of the past in the way whites treated blacks and Native Amreicans may come back to visit them.

    Secondly, a few months ago, Stone-Age Rick Santourm lamented that there are not enough babies being born in the U.S. He'll never admit it, but what he really was saying is that there aren't enough White babies being born. He, too, is frightened of a future where the white race is no longer dominant.

    Note: I am white, but unlike the people I have mentioned, I have no fear of such a future. It can't be stopped, any more than the sun can be stopped from rising and setting.

    So whites had 49.6% of the Births, I guess Hispanics had 49.7% and blacks and asians share the .7% remaining right? WAKE UP PEOPLE, the article is a LIE!!!!!

    • Rip

      It's not a lie at all. The truth is that white births no longer top 50% in this nation. That is a fact. It was predicted a decade ago that in 2012, white births would go below 50% in the United States. What this further means is that around 2042, whites, like myself, will be below 50% of the population in the United States. On a planet where white people are a clear minority, this was bound to happen sooner or later.

      And it's a key reason why there's so much rage and fear among conservatives. It comes at a time when a black man became president, and his election is a harbinger of a future where whites will have less and less economic and political clout. Seems conservative s fear that future. I certainly don't.

    If you want to see what the new demographics will mean, look at Mexico. Whites are a minority there, but they still have all the money and power The fact that they're not seen as a "white nation" doesn't matter. It actually hides the discrimination. They're still relatively rich and probably better off than their counterparts in the US. The demographics only magnify the tendency to form into ethnic castes.

    It's not the society I would choose if it was my choice. Since it's not, I'll adapt and work it to my advantage.

    We seriously need a new way to categorize ethnicities, or maybe get rid of the whole thing it is inaccurate and it's categories as generalized and exclusive of many... For example, Hispanics consists of a vast veriaty of folks from different countries and races, some are white, some are African decent others are indigenous and many a mix of multiple races, so they are a linguistic group not a racial group or even one ethinicity ( think the difference between a Dominican person and an Argentinian person) and then on the other hand the census has no clear category for people of middle eastern and north African background, if Hispanics are jumbled together as one race because they share linguistic and some cultural commonality then why the same is not applied to middle easteners? After all there are white middle easteners and black middle easteners etc...maybe I'm missing something here but the whole thing just doesn't make sense to me and seems to be out dated and at time counter productive

        Yes there are more whites on welfare than any other race. HOWEVER, perhaps you should do some more research before posting on here: blacks have the highest of their population on welfare and its not even close. Whites make up more of the population and therefore have more people that could be on welfare. But if 10% of the white population is on welfare and 25% of the black population is on welfare, which one do you think is worse? the 10% or the 25% Everyone knows who is mouching off the country more

      KNOW your history–the first slaves in the Carribean, South America and America were the Native Americans. Mexicans are a blend of native American and European and actually began that "building up of America FIRST" Before there was even a Plymouth colony, the Southwest including California, Texas, New Mexico and Arizona had settlements and missions ALL built by people descended from Native Americans and Europeans COMBINED ergo Mexicans.

      When Indian slaves could not survive the diseases, and insects and hard work in the Carribean and the Americas only then, were African slaves brought in to do the jobs. Both Native American and Asian Indians were shipped in to slave for the colonies in South America and the Carribean as early as the 1500 abd 1600s–about the time the pilgrims were setting sail to the New World.

    Its really really sad. That after all this time, after all of our advances in sciences etc. All we can still do is argue about who's shade is better. We have the same body parts, same blood. All created with a soul, given life from God. All called gods children. Called his own. Its sad when you can't see the person. You're minds have been populated by the media always throwing differences in your face. So you grow and learn to fear someone because they are of a difference color, difference region, different religion. You populate your kids minds with this garbage and they grow up to be just like you. I'm black and when i look at a white person i understand we are different. God made our differences and he did it so we can learn to get along, so we can "choose" to get along. When i look at an Asian, White, Brown, heck even a blue person if there is one. I just have love for them. Even though there are bad maybe in their culture well....who doesn't. Look back in history and see the wrongs we have all done to each other. Even animals behave better than us, i'm starting to think they have more brains. Its sad, disgusting. You live you're life, amass money and knowledge, you attend the best schools. You then in your pride think you are RICH, you think you have accomplished so much. Yet you are sooo poor. The only true wealth is found in the heart and the only true accomplishment is knowing God. All this yet we can't learn to love each other and just get along. We build walls in our hearts, take one cultures "bad" and magnify it. We have billions of ugly souls in all races people. Don't be ignorant. We spend so much time being entertained by the media, our children are educated through Jersey Shore. Please people wake up. At the end you will only one person to answer to and thats God. He will ask you why you had so much hate for your fellow brother and fellow sister. He will ask you why the poor begged you for food but didn't let him in. My heart really goes out for alot of you. What a sad sad sad existence to live and die with such hate and ignorance for each other. Lets all get rich in heart. Its the only richness there trully is. God bless all of you.
