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."

    The term "minority" is a ridiculous term. Globally, European whites have always been a "minority" who just achieved much more than the rest of mankind combined.

    I never use the term "minority" to refer to non-whites. That is all this is about anyway. As soon as non-whites outnumber whites, then "non-white" culture will reign, just like it does in other "non-white" countries. America's future is bleak indeed.

      As a middle class white male, I have to say that America is a pretty crappy place for people like me. When I walk through a neighborhood other than my own, no one has the basic concern to stop me and learn my intentions. Everyone just assumes I'm hard working and educated. Heck, in the 1800s, employers insisted on giving my ancestors PAYCHECKS! No opportunity to work for free like those privileged minorities.

      It really is tough to be white in America. Maybe, if the trends continue, I can feel the welcoming benefits of being in the minority.

    perhaps this is merely evidence that white guys are really bad at picking up women – particularly women interested in 'doing it'? Sort of an unexpected balancer for income disparity: white guys make more so women who are only interested in money (somehow these are typically also white women) gravitate towards white guys, quickly preventing them from having other mates and resulting in fewer children, which are expensive and require work – whereas the rest of the women out there have only the less-rich people to choose from, who turn out to be minorities.

    also, i'm white and my wife is half-white, half-black. Which category does our kid fall into? It seems arbitrary, and anything arbitrary is of no significance – this article is of no significance.

    Hey everyone let's not forget 100 years ago Italians and Irishmen weren't "white" either. That makes me believe in 80 years this will all have changed again.

    Why do people insist on making hispanics their own race? Hello, Spanish Empire anyone? European colonies? Most hispanics have ancestry from Europe too. Their families just took a several generation layover in the Caribbean, Central America or South America first.

    This paragraph bugs me. It seems like they are saying all minorities can't speak English.

    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.

      Yes, why would the babies not learn English if they are living in the United States and attending American public schools? Lord knows white people aren't going to learn Spanish, so Hispanics living here legally had better learn both. Illegal immigrants can not learn English for all I care, will make it easier to identify them for deportation when our federal and state governments finally begin to treat illegal immigration as the massive, unacceptable problem it is.

      haha – I though the same thing. ESL children are children from other counties where their first/native language is that of their home country. In this case, those of us born of immigrants (at least in part), have our first language as English – regardless of whether or not we speak a different language at home.

Usually what one receives (from the government as tax credits) depends on your income, not your race. My ancestors have been here since the 1700s as well, but I can't see how minorities are depriving my children of anything. If anything, they are filling the population gap that will help support the baby boomer generation (via social security, tax revenue, etc) as it grows significantly older.

    Is this really what defines us? If you scroll through a vast majority of these comments all you’ll find are two sets of people. There are those that blame the minorities for their troubles by absorbing tax money as they use the welfare system; while simultaneously taking all the jobs. And then there are the minorities who are blaming the whites for the lack of opportunity and the negative stereotypes being thrust upon them.

    When did we become a herd of mewling cattle? What happened to the Entreprenurial spirit that did not blame others for their misfortune but instead attempted to wrest themselves from misery? And moreover, do any of us minority and majority alike truly expect a group of people that can’t balance a check book to help pull us from our personal sorrows?! Those that blame the minorities for relying on the government should not then rely on the government for answers. They are just as much to blame as the minority that relies on the majority to live day to day.

    Per the article, the census bureau defines a minority as "anyone who is not 'single race white' and 'not Hispanic'". That means that for all practical purposes, anyone who has a fraction of non-white ancestry is considered a minority. This is an important implication, since many of these "minorities" are partly (or mostly) white. For example, my daughter is half Asian, half white. By the census definition she is a minority. She is too young to understand this, but when she grows up she may self-identify as white, Asian, or mixed-race, while she will always remain a "minority" in the eyes of the census.

    I'm not here to diss the census. But, they should factor in mixed-race more carefully when releasing statistics such as this, and specify how they are counted more clearly. It seems bizarre to lump all "partly" white people as minorities.

    I'm Confused.. The White Non-Hispanic Majority has a smaller population than the Minority. Wouldn't that make the minority the majority? Or are minorities only the majority when the minority is White Non-Hispanic Majority? Can you be a minority and a majority at the same time?

      Actually that is no entirely true. Many Chinese couples have children in other countries. Then go back to China for their 1 child per family. Even if they bring 2-3 children with them when they go back. Children conceived and born outside of China do not count in that policy.

Sadly it seems that what it creates is an ageing disprportionately male population that does not have enough youth to care for the elderly.

There are those that blame the minorities for their troubles by absorbing tax money as they use the welfare system; while simultaneously taking all the jobs. And then there are the minorities who are blaming the whites for the lack of opportunity and the negative stereotypes being thrust upon them.

        When did we become a herd of mewling cattle? What happened to the Entreprenurial spirit that did not blame others for their misfortune but instead attempted to wrest themselves from misery? And moreover, do any of us minority and majority alike truly expect a group of people that can’t balance a check book to help pull us from our personal sorrows?! Those that blame the minorities for relying on the government should not then rely on the government for answers. They are just as much to blame as the minority that relies on the majority to live day to day.

        First off, hispanic is not a race, it's an ethnicity. Many hispanics are of european descent, hence white hispanics. That still doesn't mean anything on its own.

I was born here, like many others that get to be labeled with where their heritage is from. So, if I'm not allowed to label others by their skin tone - black, brown, etc. then I don't want to be labeled by my skin tone either. Equality for all, right?

      Pretty sure many hispanics have like 0% European blood. As in they are directly descended from native peoples of Central and South America. I mean look at some of the people in like Peru? They never interbred with the Spaniards. Pure Inca.

    May take a couple of generations, but what will the blacks do, when they can no longer pull the minority/color race card for all of their woes? Willing to bet the percentages in quite a few metrics won't change much though.

    I would like to see some numbers on what percentage of taxes collected are from white families, as opposed to minorities. Maybe there is some correlation there. Perhaps the white families are being called upon to pay for minorities to have children.

    If you don't think white people kill other white people, then take a look at Gulf War, Afghanistan, Iraq. If you want to restrict to Europeans, how about WWI, WWII... If you want to restrict to America, how about the War of Independence, the Civil War, the Manifest Destiny (where we wiped out much of the indigenous people).

    I find it hilarious how many racist, ignorant and socially challenged people there are in these blogs. But I guess they had to figure out a way to express themselves somehow. We know that they wouldnt dare say these things in public (bunch of cowards). But the scary part is: these are the people that you work with and live with in everyday life that you think are the "cool white people". Imagine how you would feel if you knew they were in here posting on these blogs.

    I bet if we had to put our pictures and locations up behind every comment, there wouldnt be a racist post in here. LOL

      That ball bounces both ways ... read these comments a little more closely. Did you catch the ones about getting "revenge" by forcing whites into slavery?

        But you got a point there. Arabs were Muslim but blacks still consider converting to Islam to be a form of freedom. In fact east Africans were still in slavery in Saudi Arabia till the 1960's it is still practiced there but under the covers.

    Anyone who has ever lived in another country know that's not what happens. Then whites are viewed as elites, it's a worse set up. Our country needs to get away from racists labels period.
