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."

      Didn't you notice that all the experts they quoted said the immigrant population, and babies, are *good* for the economy? "Over population" was a problem of the 80's.

  8. Blame the American media...

    How you all notice, every time a white woman marries a black man or adopt a black child they immediately are the darling of the media. Wow, they get their own talk show, or reality show, you name it. They are treated like heroes. Example: Sandra Bullet, Kendra, the Kardashian greedy sisters, to name a few.
    On the other hand if a Black or Hispanic woman dates, marries a white man, they are trashed by the media. Talking about racism.

    My step-niece looks hispanic and my stepsister checked the hispanic box when she enrolled the kid in school. The kid's father isn't in the picture so no one would know if she was or wasn't hispanic. The kid's now in high school now and even though her grades aren't that good, being "Latino" is going to give her an advantage when it comes to college admissions. They're completely convinced it's alright to do this because the kid completely looks Mexican and teachers have even asked her about her 'legal status' so they think they're justified lying about being hispanic if it gets her into a good college and she gets scholarships and stuff.

    Well, duh!! Of course there are more minority babies and fewer white! The government pays for minority babies and white people can't get a dime! We have the common sense to not have babies because we can't pay for them. Since minorities don't have to actually pay for their babies (because of welfare, food stamps, WIC, etc), what is the reasoning for them to NOT have babies???!!! The more they have, the bigger the check! If I could get a check or any assistance at all, I'd birth a few more myself, but NO, I work hard, pay taxes that cover these people, and I can't even get free birth control! I mean, I'm trying to help the government out! Screw the system. Until they put a child limit on how many get assistance, people are not going to stop.

      Wow- this shows an incredible amount of ignorance. Our local WIC office is full of white women trailed by a small litter of white children with dirty faces. Of course they sit with black and hispanic women in the same situation. Poverty isn't a racial affliction, and poor people receiving benefits shouldn't be thought of along racial lines. And by the way, it is unlikely they see any of your tax dollars. Your tax dollars buy bombs that kill third world children.

      The last time I bought groceries, I paid for it with my own checking account, and it was close to $300. Most of it was store named to save as much as possible. The lady behind me, and her band of 5 kids pushing 3 buggies, spent close to $500 on name brand items, steak, shrimp, and other things I do without, and of course swiped her green card to pay for it. Then I watched her load them all up in her brand new Escalade. If she can afford the payments/gas on that ride, how is she getting an EBT card? This is the garbage I'm talking about. While I scrimp to make the payments and gas on my 2000 honda.

    The white people try to control the size of their families. They use birth control or abortion instead of over populating the world. They use these methods to give more quality to the family they have already produced instead of having so many children that they become a burden and overwhelm the Government provided freebees. In other words the white people care about their quality of life.

    So we know how to use birth control? What's the point? Has been and always will be less than a thousand people with all the money. We've already gotten used to cowtowing to minorities who expect something for nothing. The only thing that is changed is the thousand folks with all the money stopped worrying about whites. They took my house when health reasons prevented me from paying for it, we went through bankruptcy. Whites are not and have not ever been your biggest problem. Your biggest problem is letting the thousand or so wealthy people continue to own you, just like it is for us. None of us wear shackles and chains anymore, but everyone one of us is owned by those that hold our debt. You say slave, I say indentured servant. We are all in the same boat.

        People like cinchy are blissfully unaware that minorities (and women) didn’t get to collect on the biggest affirmative action program in history, the 1944 servicemen’s readjustment act, better known as the G.I. Bill, that helped whites become middle class and have multigenerational wealth. Denying minorities their benefits, and denying them subsidized housing in the suburbs through redlining, is why people of color are poorer than whites, not because of some bogus innate difference between races.
        Did you really think that Jews and other ethnic whites (watch out, you may have been one of them) just picked themselves up by their bootstraps?
        They were reclassified as whites, and given their benefits. End of story. (Go ahead and use “end of story” as a jumping off point for "debate" cinchy.)

    Who gives a damn. It is not right that China and the First World are the only ones self-regulating, China by government decree, the First World by embracing the very POSITIVE developments of feminism, women in the work place, better education of women, and birth control rights.

    We should also include pamphlets on how we are going to cut off all humanitarian aid in 10 years, so, you know, use these condoms we gave you.

        Just because you don't like someone's opinion doesn't mean it has no value. No one is saying have NO kids, people are saying have FEWER kids. 1 or 2, not 5 or 6.

        Like my heart goes out to people in Africa who are starving, we could and should feed them, I was joking earlier when I said we should cut off all humanitarian aid, but at the same time we should really try to enlighten the rest of humanity to the miracle of birth control.

        We can't afford indefinite, exponential human population growth world-wide. It's literally not sustainable in the long term (as in we will no longer have enough arable land to feed everyone and we might make the planet unlivable one way or another), and in the short-term it will cause a host of other problems.

    There is a dirty secret about race. Due to an enormous population bottleneck (fewer than 20k humans survived) 75k years ago in humans we are much more identical to each other than say chimps are to each other. %85 of all genetic diversity of humans is found in Sub Saharan Africa. Also skin color is very loosely associated with genetic differences which means many whites are more related to say darker people than other whites.

    Not surprising. Back when abortion became ‘legal’ (which was in hope that the ‘colored minorities’ would take full advantage of it), it was mainly the ‘white’ females who took full advantage of it. Back in my High School days ‘just about’ every white female who became pregnant (that I knew) ran out and got an abortion.
    The same in the ’corporate’ world. My white Co-workers would weight ‘career’ or ‘an extra child’….most chose ‘career’, and wasn’t shame to admit it. Soooo……

    The so-called "conservatives" in our society have always been racists and see everything through a racist lens. It doesn't change from generation to generation because the fundamental nature of their confused thinking never changes – that's what makes them "conservatives." Every bit of racist rubbish spewed on here is just like the racist rubbish of their parents, and their parents before them. Like every human being, they think they're right, but even they have had to repudiate most "conservative" positions of the past – their support for slavery and Jim Crow being only two examples of hundred in US history where "conservatives" have been on the wrong side of human progress. They are the millstone around the neck of humanity and always will be – don't waste breath or time arguing with them.

        The use of the word "conservative" is a deliberate choice. Which political party represents the "conservative" point of view changes over time. Today's conservatives would have been the Democrats of the slavery/Civil War era, just as they would have been the Tories (loyal English colonists) during the American Revolution, just as they would have opposed the vote for women, the ending of child labor, the decent treatment of Native Americans, and so on. The historical record of so-called "conservatives" on human rights, dignity and freedom is consistently shameful – much like their opinions and behavior in these forums.
