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."

      Of course not, because white people will always have the ability to achieve– it is far more commonly in white peoples' dna to be creative, ambitious and self-providing. Affirmative action is for loser races like blacks who have lower average iqs ambition and morals– they need the bar lowered just to compete.

        @jason, well unless you can point me to the genes for creativity and ambition then you would be a liar, which is not uncommon for white folks. You need not look any further than the treaties with the native americans when the US was created. All of which the white folks violated. I sure hope you don't think you are a symbol of the white race because if so then white folks are better off not reproducing.

    So with your first comment of "All white countries are first world, and that's a fact, majority of minorities fill up second and third world country slots" are we as nation on the road to becoming a 2nd or 3rd world nation? As these story eludes to, we are a nation of becoming a non-white nation. I'm not saying that it's bad but it is what it is. It's just to bad we cannot learn to deal with each other in a non-racist mentality. All races in this country seems to be bigoted to each in some way.

    This is totally the wrong issue. It is like saying there are fewer white cars on the road than last year. Who cares about the colour? The real statistics, the ones that matter are; how many of those children are raised in poverty, how many of those children will have access to medical care, how many of those children will get a good education, how many of those children will end up in the criminal justice system? Colour is just paint on the wall. What matters above all is quality of life. Without that, no matter what colour the child, their life is wasted.

    The anger and depravity of this commentary is proof that white supremacy is a failed system. Hating people based on small physical traits robs the haters of the ability to reason based on objective reality, show basic human empathy toward other humans, and make rational observations of other people. race does not even exist biologically so why would ethnic diversity be something to fear.

I'm not convinced Europe, which is quite small compared to the entire world, is the only place on the planet with cooler temperatures "conducive to developement", whatever that means. Did you know that Europe has something called a winter? Where going outside becomes all but impossible to deal with? Whereas in temperate climates, you could still go outside.

      The financial bankers and elites couldn't care less if the U.S. was 99% green martians with purple polka-dots, ate skinned cats and spoke Martian. Al they care about is "ECONOMIC INTEGRATION" of immigrants - legal or illegal.

      From the moment a newcomer steps off a plane (or crosses the dessert), they need to buy or rent a home/condo, which makes land developers and banks rich. They consume and indebt themselves buying food and clothes. Credit card companies cheer.
      They instantly become surplus labor which drives down wages - corporations and business cheer and roll in profits and grin at their cheap disposable workforce.

      It's a cycle that's been repeating itself for sometime. Capitalism needs a constant growing population in order to survive, or it collapses. It's like a giant monster that needs to be fed. Don't expect the government to turn off immigration any time soon - to legals or illegals.

      White people stopped having kids in the 1970's shortly after the pill was discovered. Maybe they realized they didn't want to bring kids up into this fixed game?

    The larger question is who gets classified as "White" (or "Black", or "Other"). The truth is that Majority of Americans that have been here for more than a few generations are MIXED.
    Whether the American Government wants to admit it, or not, "Americans" have become their own "race".

    Educated whites have less children because they can do simple math and have better jobs that require more time away from home.,
    Where as minorities have the grunt jobs and have no or little education and can breed like rabbits and receive the smart white peoples money in the form of food stamps and free housing and education and medial care for their growing brood of minority children.

    Lots of stupid people breeding cant be good for a country.

        this is the problem. Ignorance of history and science and the most racist vehicle of all, TV, allows whites to believe that they alone have contributed to the advancement of the world. The next time you stop at a traffic light, hear about heart surgery in a newborn, use prednisone(one of the most beneficial and widely used drugs that have changed the practice of medicine in all diseases from asthma to arthritis to lupus and on and on), use an abacus, wash yourself with soap(clean yourself on a regular basis or take a bath), read about the economics of a fledgling nation, earliest successful attempts at neurosurgery and the germ theory of disease long before europeans and American doctors thought about washing their hands-think color. The reason TV only produces and directs programs that show white heroes, scientists, mathematicians, engineers, historians; and shows only black people using drugs and committing crime(even though the facts are now being shown as to who is using and dealing drugs and how communities are preferentially policed and statistics skewed) is to generate ignorance such as yours and your kind. This allows wealthy whites to steal millions, billions, and control everything you eat, see, think, believe, how you shop, what you watch on TV, what you fear, value, and eventually your most personal behavior will be controlled by the powers that be due to your ignorance and the stupidity you pass on to your offspring.

    The real problem is not that fewer "white" children are being born; the problem is that the groups having the most children are the poor, the ignorant and the religious (the last two are a little redundant though I guess it is possible to be ignorant without being religious). Too few intelligent, self-sufficient people are having children leaving those few to carry the burden of future progress. I guess we need mindless consumers, but not for long.

      Without birth control, planned parenthood (for family planning) or abortion the poor and minorities will continue to have more and more babies, they have no choice.. No one understands that these restrictive policies only effect the poor and minorities. People with money can afford contraception and will always have access to birth control and abortions – if abortion is illegal they will fly wherever it's legal to have it, the poor are forced to have the baby – they arent given any options and our society has to support the kid and pay the medical bills for the birth. I think government funded contraception would be far cheaper. Even providing free condoms is a start – the $1 we would spend is nothing compared to the $100,000's of thousands each birth costs us, for the medical costs for the birth and support for 18 years!!! But this argument is far too logical for our country to adopt.

Whites still have the vast majority of the power/politico and militarily, own more guns, and insure that poor housing districts fund schools which, by virtue, remain also poor.

        You are already getting it. Whites have been getting the most welfare benefits since the beginning, this is not news. Now Medicaid benefits are being handed out to 17 million white suburbanites who own homes. When the facts come out, what you believe is very different from what is. Most drug use is among white teens vs "black " teens and richer teens use the most in this group. There was a time when Jews, Italians, and Spanish were not considered white. The designation was changed to allow them benefits that were once available to whites only-GI benefits, subsidized housing, government jobs, preferential treatment in all sectors and more lenient treatment in the courts. So if you give up your "white" status, you will be sacrificing a lot-better schools, fiirst calll to jobs, higher pay, safer neighborhoods when NIMBY policies are considered, police turning a blind eye to crime, better medical care by a system that has been called discriminatory by the AMA itself, and others too numerous to mention. The grass is not greener on the other side. And to the woman who called ignorant and their own victims- history shows who was getting the hand up and the hand out.based on skin color. these policies are still in effect today. You are not where you are because of the virtue of your white skin, but because of it, in a country that began out of racist policies and thrives on it with fear being used as the vehicle.

    CNN, what happened to journalistic integrity? "White babies are new minority" is a complete and blatant fabrication to spark a near race riot discussion. The research shows that Caucasian children no longer outnumber all other minority children combined. That does not make them a minority. It makes Caucasian children still the majority among all ethnic groups. Why do I read this crap?

    The problem is many people who cannot afford children continue to have them irrespective of the nations landscape. There needs to be a cap on how many you can have. I know the bleeding hearts will be up in arms but may I point your attention to the woman who has eight kids by seven different fathers and now lives off $1000+ in food stamps not to mention Section 8 housing, TANIF, etc......and it does not end there.

        The world can support a larger population than in past times, because we've figured out how to exploit fossil fuels more effectively. A lot less people work to provide food for the rest, but we've managed to burn through millions of years in stored energy in about a century. As that energy becomes more scarce, watch the chit hit the fan.

        Across a large swath of Africa, the percentage of the adult population infected with HIV has reached 25%. That certainly is up there with other "plagues", antibiotics and modern medicine notwithstanding. We just haven't quite reached the population threshold that corresponds to our level of technology this time around. If you think the present rates of fertility and the rates at which we are consuming energy are sustainable, you're living in a fool's paradise.

        We've already reached the point in the USA where the price of food tracks very closely to the price of energy. We won't run out of energy all at once; it will just become increasingly expensive, and therefore, so will food. Sooner or later, the population will have bred itself out of resources.

      My cousin (mixed) just had her 5th kid, I know of at least 4 different daddies. Not sure about the newest. She's single, has never worked a day in her life. Her mother, my aunt, has 9 kids by 6 different men ranging for over 30 to her youngest who is 8, some of her kids are white, some are mixed. She has also never worked a single job in her life either. Her two oldest sons are in jail for a long time (both black), her youngest son (white) is the only adult child who has stayed out of trouble and works (so far he's the only white one to be of age). She has a few more underage kids at home, white ones, so hopefully they will follow their white brother's footsteps and not their black siblings.

      I use to get so mad at whites who made racist remarks. Then I moved to the city and got out of my small all white town and see how blacks act. A majority of them act worse than animals. I've only ran across a few civilized ones, and I see them all the time. Now I understand why they are looked down upon. The decent ones make something of themselves, the rest play the victim while enjoying all the wonderful things while people have given them, such as freedom.

    Waste of time with this research. We should spend less time finding out what color a baby is (it doesnt matter) and find out the % of these babies are being born to young women in high school with fathers who flew the coup. How many of these young children are being born into a poverty stricken home. Do this so we can try to be somewhat preemptive on the fact that in all likelyhood that is the case with many of these children regardless of race and that we will have to support them and their immature teenage parents with our tax dollars for the next 18 years.....and likely longer as I see a trend amongst the children of teenage parents to make the same mistakes themselves when they reach that age.

    Before everone old and racist starts inciting a race war, or all the young minorities climax too much, something you all need to realize that this forshadows not only the eventual end of the white race in the us, but the eventual end of race period.

    The fact is the vast majority of whites mixing are doing it with blacks and vice versa. With their being 4 times as many full whites as full blacks in the us, by the time the full white race is decimated so will the full black race too. The black numbers are deceiving as the number of full blacks has dropped significantly but mixed race children have jumped. It is fact that most mixed race people don't pick that on the census, they mark black most of the time.
    What they are covering up is that this is the slow genocide of the black race too.
    By the time the white are all mixed so will all the black be, and then we will have just all people with brown hair and brown eyes, and bye bye diversity.

With whites, its an embarrasment to live off the government and is a last resort, not for all, but for alot. Its every day norm for blacks and hispanics. I was at Wal Greens the other day behind two black girls who were talking in their loud ghetto voice about getting some ice cream and dr pepper with their food stamp card.

I'm a young woman of childbearing age, who has put off children to advance my education (college, grad school, doctorate) and career, which I worked very hard for. Many, if not most, smart, educated women have done the same. I feel the government should subsidize the freezing of the eggs of women like me.

    The hispanic population is definitely the main reason behind the jump in births. When I gave birth to son about 5 years ago, as I took my stroll through the hall to the nursery, I think every single room other than mine was a hispanic woman. I know because they either joined me on the walk to the nursery or I could hear the conversation in the room or the tv as I passed the room. It didn't bother me at all it was just something I noticed. Another increase is in the mixed babies. There has been a spike in interracial relationships thus creating mixed/interracial babies. Some people opt to check "other" than check white or black or hispanic because the baby is a good mixture of both parents. I'm in an interracial relationship and if I have a kid from him, I'd probably check "other" as well unless you can check two boxes.

    A lot of people are having a lot of children that they can't afford and that do not have fathers. They also get subsidised housing, schooling, food, etc. Not sustainable. Look around. Many have children for the benefits.

      I wouldn't say they have the kids for the benefits but they're definitely being irresponsibe. I got my first job right out of high school because I had a kid in the 12th grade. I have been employed ever since. I've moved up the ladder and make a decent but not high salary. I do not qualify for food stamps, subsidized housing or anything else. It bugs the heck out of me because although I work, I like a lot of other working people have a ton of deductions being taken from my check and I bring home much less than my gross pay. But the scales are based on gross pay and not the final pay after the deductions. I know of quite a few mothers who haven't worked a day in their life, have 4, 5 and 6 kids and get it all plus get to sleep all day while the working class work.

        Did a white person give you your job?
        Do you know you're not eligible because you applied? It is mostly white people on food stamps and welfare after all.

      It is obvious that you have never been poor enough to get any welfare benefits. If you ever had you would then realize that no one is really stupid enough to do that, and we have some really stupid people in America.

      Please quit writing about things you know nothing about so that you don’t qualify for that label yourself.

        It has nothing to do with what God likes or doesn't like. It has to do with the fact that more minorities are recieving welfare and other public assistance and pop out a dozen babies that they can't afford because they're not the ones paying the bills, and the ones they do pay they have 20 people living with them to pitch in. Whereas the responsible people that spend more time working for their money than they do on their backs know that if they can't afford any more children they shouldn't have them.

      "your" own country. It's these implicit biases that the country needs to get past.

        Are you crazy? A flight attendant can't ask a black man not to take up so much compartment space with a HUGE bag without every media outlet being contacted that there was racism. African Americans CONSTANTLY pull the race card when the wind blows the wrong direction. Anyone who even tried to start a white only anything would have to live in hiding for years. You want equality? Don't make a company hire a certain amount of blacks, don't make a college turn away a higher qualified student because they have to reserve their African american slots, don't have your own pagents but still enter in the other ones. Make everyone work for what they get and stop using that go to "it's because I'm black" comment that makes more people resentful than anything else. Because in this day and age, no it's not because you're black, it's because you didn't earn or deserve whatever it was.

        Payback for what? I don't owe you a D a m n thing and nobody else does eiather. America was not the only country that had slaves and they were not even the ones that started it. Black men from Africa started it by selling the prisoners to other countries as slaves and it went out of hand from there. I don't in any way shape or form think it was right but regardless, no white person living is responsible for what happened.

      I agree. I'm not responsible for anything that happened 100 or even 50 years ago. Yet I'm stuck paying for special programs and I don't get special advantages in hiring. I was a supervisor several years ago. Most of the 60 employees were black. I had to be very careful. When one of my white employees messed up I took action according to the guidelines I had been given. No problem. When one of my black employees messed up and I did the same thing, you would have thought slavery was a recent thing. Every smegging time I had to answer an EEOC complaint. I remember writing one response that said, "The color of Mr. 'x" skin did not cause him to be late to work 15 times in the past 20 days."
      I hate all the 'special exceptions.' Try to have WET (White entertainment television) or a White caucus in the House and Senate and see what a uproar their is!

        only in america can bourgeois white people complain that the main racial problem we face is reverse racism and affirmative action, when people of color and woman missed out on the greatest affirmative action program in history, having been locked out of their GI bill and redlined after world war II.

      The biggest affirmative action program in U.S. history was the 1944 servicemen's readjustment act, or the G.I. Bill, that was denied to people of color and women despite their service. This, coupled with being redlined is the real reason minorities are poorer than whites, whites who assumed they pulled themselves up by their bootstraps.

    To the people posting hateful comments: When you're old and gray and cannot care for yourself, I hope your fellow racist friends and family help care for you. It very sad to see what happens to old hateful, racist people in a care home... Most care homes will put you out if you become an issue and your family will look the other way so long as they don't have to care for you... Most places that care for the elderly are full of "so-called" minority staff.
