Nearly Half of America’s Youth Population Is Minority

Juan Tornoe, Hispanic Trending, May 23, 2014

Diversity is increasing among America’s youth because of unprecedented population increases of minority children, particularly Hispanic, as well as a significant decline in the number of non-Hispanic white children.

The new information comes from research at the Carsey Institute at the University of New Hampshire.


America’s rapidly changing racial and ethnic composition was seen in increased child diversity between 2007 and 2012 despite the negative effect of the Great Recession, which reduced births among women in their 20s by nearly 15 percent.

“America is becoming an increasingly diverse society though this diversity is experienced unevenly,” said Kenneth Johnson, senior demographer at the Carsey Institute and professor of sociology at UNH, who co-authored the brief, The Increasing Diversity of America’s Youth.


In 1990, 32 percent of the population younger than age 20 was minority, increasing to 39 percent in 2000. By July of 2012, 47 percent of the 82.5 million people under age 20 in America were from minority populations.

In contrast, minorities represented only 33 percent of the 231.4 million residents age 20 or older.


Diversity is increasing because the minority child population is growing, while the non-Hispanic white child population dwindles.

There are 7.7 million more minority young people now than in 2000, but 5.7 million fewer white children.

From a demographic standpoint, Hispanics are driving rapid increases in diversity among America’s children. In fact, most of the growth in the minority child population between 2000 and 2012 was attributable to Hispanic births.

Immigration was an important source of growth in the Hispanic population, but more than 95 percent of Hispanic children under the age of 5 were U.S. born.

I like to imagine the natives speared all them English brutes that landed on their shore some 400  ...

Me too.  :)

If you want I can point you to some stories of some good battles where they did just that.
