Dear MEL Topic Readers,
Census release shows America is more diverse and more multiracial than ever
America is found to be more diverse. According to the 2020 Census data, the US population is much more multiracial, and more racially and ethnically diverse than ever before. The share of non-Hispanic White in the US population fell 6% to 57% in 2020 from 2010 while the population of Hispanic, Asian, and mixed races increased to take the share. This increase of the non-white population is more apparent in the under-18 population in the last decade, which went up from 47% to 53%. The Hispanic or Latino population grew more than other races again in the last decade. In fact, they became the largest racial or ethnic group in the state of California for the first time, representing nearly 40% of the most populous state.
The overall population grew just by 7% to 331 million, the slowest growth since the Great Depression era, and the growth was seen mainly in the metro areas. Now, each state starts to adjust its congressional and state legislature district lines based on the new Census data before the 2022 midterm elections.
Enjoy studying the latest population mix data of one of the most diverse countries in the world.
