Every single one of them!
A new report from the United States Census Bureau says in 2016, white people now comprise 31% of the U.S. population, but less than 30% of all U.S. homes. To understand this more clearly, let’s start with another key stat: the average age of all white children in 2014, according to the Census Bureau, was 8.9 years old. This figure is down from 9.0 in 2013 and 7.0 in 2012. Meanwhile, the average age of Asian-Americans is 4.8 years old — a 10.3 percent increase over this time in 2013 and a 2.7 percent increase over last year. So, not only is the average white child younger than white children of all racial groups, but a much smaller percentage of Asian children are in such a position. (This fact matters because in 2013, Asian-Americans made up 4 percent of total U.S. residents younger than 14. This statistic only applies to adults.)
One factor in the declining white numbers comes from a decline in the white birth rate. According to the Census Bureau, in the past 40 years, the white birth rate has dropped by about 2.2 percent, or 6.2 million white births per year. Of course, the percentage of white births is rising, though — at 2.9 percent in 2016, it is the highest it’s been since 1960.
While the overall birth rate is falling, the fertility rate — the number of children born to a woman per woman — has risen from an already-slightly-high-rate of 2.05 in 1940 to 2.19 in 2016 (for context, the 2.18 average in 2016 was more than 1 percent higher than it was in 1940). In other words, white women are marrying later and having fewer children, not just for the reasons discussed in the last section.
White women are having more babies. But they are getting married later.
The birth rate is falling in the U.S., in part because older women tend to have shorter lifespans than younger women. So, even as the general population ages, young women are having fewer babies. There were 11.8 births for every 1,000 women aged 40 and older in 2014. For women aged 30 to 34, that figure fell to 9.4. For women 50 and older, it jumped to 12.0.
That’s not why we’ve seen the numbers fall, though. Instead
