News sources reported the U.S. Census projected Whites will no longer be a majority in the U.S. by 2043. Of course, this forecast does not apply to the advertising industry at all, where Census data and common knowledge show Whites will maintain their exclusive positions well beyond the year 3000.
Census: Whites no longer a majority in U.S. by 2043
WASHINGTON (AP) — White people will no longer make up a majority of Americans by 2043.
The new government projection is a year later than previous estimates, made before the impact of the recent economic downturn was known.
The nation continues to grow and become more diverse due to higher birth rates among minorities, but no longer at a torrid pace as immigration wanes.
The total U.S. population should climb to 420 million by 2060, with whites making up 43% Hispanics, currently 17% of the population, will jump to 31%, or nearly 1 in 3 residents. Blacks will make up 14.7%, up slightly.
The point when minority children become the majority is expected to occur in 2019; last year, minorities became the majority among U.S. newborns.
