U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT: What the Census Tells Us About America Today
By Space Coast Daily // June 24, 2016
Four states are currently majority-minority
U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT – America is changing rapidly. The country is older, more diverse and more likely to be multiracial. New Census data show what statistics will make up the current and future America.
The Census has predicted that by 2044, more than half of Americans will belong to a minority group (any group other than non-Hispanic, whites).
But in several states, the shift has already happened. Four states are majority-minority: Hawaii, New Mexico, California and Texas.
In contrast, Maine, Vermont and West Virginia are the least diverse states.
By 2030, one in five Americans will be 65 and older, according to the Census Bureau. Some states experienced rapid increases in their senior populations between 2010 and 2015. As the Baby Boomers continue to age, health care, real estate and businesses will need to adjust to accommodate an older population.
