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."

      How is that even sensible? People are marrying outside their race and have been for a long time, not because they have a gun to their heads either! People CHOOSE to marry and have children by people whom they love. There are a lot of biracial people as a result. It is not self-genocide or anything of the kind!! Don't be ridiculous.

    There are several possible explanations and reasons for this, among them:

    1- white women do abort.
    2- white people are or have become sterile.
    3- white people prefer to have pets specially dogs rather than children.
    4- white people call their pets, specially dogs; baby.
    5- white people prefer luxury cars (Ferraris, Lamborginis) over children.
    6- white people don't love children.
    7- white people don't like children.
    8- because of all of the above, God's judgemente is that white people do not deserve children.
    9- white people are killing their children
    10- after killing their children, white people are eating their children due to eating disorders.
    11- white people are feeding their children to their dogs.

    White vs "The rest". The problem here is "The rest" is made of mutliple ethnic groups. It's very amusing to put them all in the "other ingredients pot". As a white I must admit I fear the day they will all league against us and use my taxes to feed their offsprings and take over the world! This article reeks of xenophobia...

    Minority? There is absolutely nothing minor about non-white heritage or placement in this world. STOP referring to yourselves as such. Embrace and love one another, and reflect on how being non-white has impacted daily life, and overall existence. Allow your struggles to teach that being conquered by divisive racism is more reason to unite and banish rifts between yourselves. No one will respect you until you learn to love, protect, and respect yourselves. Be proud, thrive, LIVE!!

    And ... who cares? No really, who cares? OK, older generations may care as they are more racially biased. And of course there are always going to be new kids trained in the ways of hate. But as a general rule, the issue of race matters less and less for the younger genrations. So while this is an interesting item, it just doesn't matter.

    What does matter is all the other ongoing issues of life such as government deficit spending, social programs running out of funds, lack of decent jobs, oil and energy issues, and on and on and on. Does anyone really have any time to care about the color of someone's skin anymore? Aren't we all to busy to care (except for those dedicated to hate of course)? Sigh....

    Very misleading link off of the front page "white babies now the minority". Being less than 50% of the total does not make a group a minority. By this defintiion, everybody is now a minority since no group consists of 50% or more of the births. White babies are only less than all other groups COMBINED.

    May 17, 2012 at 4:08 pm | Report abuse |
    • agooyers

      A minority is any subgroup that does not form a numerical majority.

      A numerical majority is more than half (50%) of some group.

      Since white babies are not more than half (50%) of the current baby population (under 1 year of age) of the United States, white babies are not the numerical majority of babies.

      White babies are a subgroup of current American as a whole. Since white babies are not a numerical majority, they are by definition a minority, a subgroup that does not form a numerical majority.

      So all ethnic subgroups of the current population of American babies are minorities. No ethnic subgroup of babies forms a majority.

      The crux of this is that if this trend continues, along with immigration by non-whites, white people will no longer be the ethnic majority in the United States. There will be no ethnic majority in the United States. Every ethnic subgroup in the United States will be a minority. White people will be a minority. Black people will still be a minority. Hispanics will still be a minority, Asians will still be a minority.

      The current usage of the word "minority" as a reference to "non-whites" will become archaic and meaningless. When whites become a minority among many minorities, with not ethnic majority, the term minority could just as easily refer to whites as any other ethnicity.

    The term "ethnic minority" will become meaningless, as every ethnicity and race will be just another minority. To put it another way, there will be no ethnic or racial majority in the United States.

    As for immigration, so long as Hispanics learn English, adjust culturally (not saying they have to completely assimilate, just that they should realize American society is very different and more advanced than Mexico or Colombia, ie. women are supposed to be treated as equal to men, you can't try to force Catholic or any other religious values on others, communism ain't happening), get educated at a relatively good rate, and work for a living, I have no problem with them whatsoever.

    I do have a problem with illegal immigration though. The United States has a sovereign right to regulate immigration, and those who invade our country by entering it without or leave should be deported back to their home countries by law enforcement. Anchor baby or no.

    From a physical stand point I am half Asian / half non-hispanic white. My children are a quarter Asian, three-quarters non-hispanic white. The only language my children know is American English. We do not eat rice at every meal. We do everything any other US Family does: we work, we pay taxes, we send our kids to school. Nothing exceptional in my family from any other "white American" famity. Do I consider myself Asian? No. Do I consider myself White? No. I consider myself an American whose has a family that can trace its history on this Continent to the American Revolution and possibly beyond.

    The census may consider me and my kids as a minority, but I certainly do not feel like one.

    And I think I can speak for some of the NM "minorities" that they feel the same way I do. Many "hispanic" families here can trace their presence on this Continent back to Spanish Conquistadors. Do they consider themselves Spanish or Mexican? No. They consider themselves citizens of the US of A.

      Being descended from Spanish Conquistadores on this continent is fine. But not all of this continent is the United States of America. Most of the descendants of Spanish Conquistadores have not been citizens of the United States. Except for Florida, Louisiana, and the Southwestern states conquered from Mexico, the United States has very little Spanish colonial history.

      The vast majority of American hispanics either came here from another part of the Americas, or are descended from people who came here from other parts of the Americas.

      Other than in the southwestern states and a small percentage in Florida, I doubt there are very many hispanics at all in the United States whose ancestors were in the United States before the Mexican-American War.

      Then again, the same is true of many European-descended Americans, as Italians, European Jews from various countries, Polish, Eastern Europeans, etc. immigrated here long after the United States achieved nationhood. I don't know what percentage of them came here legally, but I suspect it is higher than the percentage of Hispanic Americans.

And when we're nice to black people, they are pleasantly surprised, while white people get angry at us and shoot us dirty looks for treating black people like ...people. Seriously, your society is messed up.

      halting racism had come a long way until Obama was elected.
      As soon as every person in the nation was labeled a racist if they disagreed with any policy he made it really set the clock back about 60 years.
      Democrats are solely responsible for the massive outbreak of racism by their actions towards the rest of the nation.
      White Guilt can be a bad thing and the Democrats are full of it.

        Dems were labeled racists for not supporting Herman Cain. Then the GOP stopped supporting Herman Cain.

    So as this "melting pot" continues, how will people be classified? When does "black" get diluted enough to be "non-black"? How far removed do you have to be from Hispanic origins to be non- Hispanic? Eventually, everyone will be either picking their own race (I identify as "black"), or they will just select "other" and then "other" will become the new majority. Imagine a day when we hold up the "Historically Other College" as an example to follow!

      Its not a melting pot until all people "melt" into society.
      That means drop the hyphenated names (African-American) and learn English.
      Keep your heritage but be Americans first.
      Until then we are just a mess.

    so... why are they called minorities if they are the majority?

      Because whites are still the majority. If you have 5 red M&Ms, 3 brown, 3 green, and 3 blue, the reds are hardly "the minority".

        Nope. What you really are is a guy who doesn't understand how economies work or why jobs are created.

        Closing our borders won't create more jobs. Quite the contrary. That's because you need people not to just earn money but to spend money. And, without more people spending money, more jobs won't be created.

    If we whites wanted to 'keep America (majority) white, we only have ourselves to blame. Open immigration policies, especially for cultures that still like large families, porous borders – and our desire for small families. We'd rather be DINKs than have the babies to keep our population up. This isn't a complaint – but we can't complain about it.
    My mother was a nurse in the L60's. A lady was complaining about 'all her kids'. My mother asked why she had so many. The lady gave her a dirty look, 'that's black power, baby!'
    My mother shot back – 'black power' is smaller families, with educated children.
    They both had a point. Guess which one is better for the nation?

      We have to have smaller families because our taxes keep going up to pay for all the welfare babies!
