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."

    White babies are not a minority in this country. This story takes one race of people and stacks them against at least other races to make whites a minority. Compare the white race to a single race and data will say otherwise. Race bait much????

      Anything less than 50% is a minority, right? That means white babies are just another minority. The majority of babies are non-white.

      Non-whites are not one group of course. The implication is that there will be no ethnic majority in the United States in a few decades.

      You're right about how they're trying to "low-ball" the number of White Americans by not counting any Hispanic as "White," even though some groups, such as the Cuban-Americans in Florida, certainly area. And no, it's NOT a great thing that we Whites are giving up the country we built by not having enough babies. It's tragic. I'm old enough that I'll probably not live to see the worst of the changes, and I'm glad ot it.

    Mea culpa I meant to post this on its own.. not as a response..

    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.

    Notice how the "demographers" fail to list abortion as a factor for low White birthrates and "aging population".

    Also note the arrogance of mass immigration zealots that they expect to continue to impose their malignant policies against US Citizens for decades.

    Mass abortion and mass immigration is the Final Solution for those who hate America. They use your tax dollars to pay for Planned Parenthood to kill US babies as well as paying for illegal aliens to have anchor babies.

      I think you have that backwards. For a variety of reasons, abortion is more common among "minorities". If you Google the CDC statistics on this, black women comprise 12.3% of the female population in America, but account for 36.4% of all U.S. abortions in 2006.

You want to talk about downfall? Our downfall will be the inability to embrace the diversity that makes us great. America has a sorted history. We took land from the native population. We built our foundations on slavery and corruption. We have become a nation of greed and polarization. With all that said, we are still a nation of great potential and rich history.

I can't help but speculate...I have also noticed on some stories the board moderators are NOT removing hate speech posted in comment threads. I have seen some really hateful, frightening comments from both black and white. Last night I cringed at the comments I saw for the story about the Florida mother who killed her 4 kids and then herself. Even after comments had been flagged, CNN did not remove them. Now this article about fewer white children being born has no redeeming value whatsoever. In fact, who cares? What do we glean from this information?

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.

        This is for orangeman who replied to your post. I hate to tell you this but you have obviously not read your American history. I'm not saying that Lincoln was a horrible or great president. Lincoln could have cared less about equality. He even considered shipping the slaves back to Africa. Lincoln's SOLE motivation ducring the American Civil War was the prevent the reservation of the union. He felt that the only way to preserve the Union was to free the slaves which would Europe from entering into the war on the side of the Southern states. I would also like to point out that Lincoln broke the law and overstepped his authority during the Civil War. Read your history before you make a statemnt like that.

        So if you believe in smaller govt dont vote for bush 2.0 in mitt romney. This guy increased govt in MASS and increased their debt. Bush created the deficit and made the govt much larger than obama. Romney will use the same policies.

      Idiocracy was not about race. It was about intelligence levels. If anything Idiocracy was targetted at the specific brand of stupidity exhibited by white people, especially Republicans, but which we are all complicit in as consumers.

      I mean if you are a racist who genuinely believes that whites are naturally smarter than other races, and that with a lower percentage of whites in the country we will become stupider per capita, fine. But I'm inclined to agree with Mike Judge, that white people are just as dumb per capita as any other race, maybe dumber due to arrogance.

        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. There has been plenty of immigration in the past few hundred years to where we can be outsiders to our own families. It's all part of being culturally challenged. That's the price we pay from deviating outside our boundaries where we see none.

    It's interesting to me that in order to be politically correct there are African-American, Latin-American, Cuban-American, etc. But white is just... white. (?) Well, if that's the case I would like to be labeled Scottish, Polish-American from this point on, thank you very much! I am no longer wanting to be just 'white'. 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? Plus, I'm olive-toned so I would, in fact, be considered more of a brownish hue. So, if born in America... you are an American-American in my book.

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.

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 only ignorance is how the system works. The true and honest people that need assistance can't get it, but the ones that are using Unemployment and Birthing as a career choice are bathing in money!

      Jill could not have said it better. Why not have all those kids. Different fathers – none in the home – some may pay child support and then along with the large government check – getting larger with each baby – why not. Free food, medical, housing, free bus pass. Ain't America a wonderful place?

      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.

They had some very interesting answers – it seems as though black folks are fine being scrubs, but when it gets really really hard... I'm not sayin', I'm just sayin'.

    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.

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.
