The Americas recorded greater diversity, greater urbanization, fewer whites, and more than five million people originally from Asia, compared to previous reports. The US Census Bureau has presented the first detailed results of the 2020 census with a comparison of the country’s demographic data from 10 years ago. At the same time, this change is being directly linked to the elections for House Control in 2022, which has messed up the arithmetic of the leaders. The 2020 census marked the 24th census in US history and for the first time families were invited to answer online.
The share of the non-Hispanic white population fell from 63.7 percent in 2010 to 57.8 percent in 2020, the lowest on record. There are now 191 million non-Hispanic whites in the US, down from 196 million 10 years ago.
At the same time, there is no longer a majority racial or ethnic group for people under the age of 18, as the age group of non-Hispanic whites has declined from 53.5 percent to 47.3 percent in this decade.
In California, Hawaii, New Mexico and the District of Columbia, non-Hispanic whites are no longer the single largest group. The ‘Asian alone’ group accounts for 6 percent of the total US population, with Hawaii, California and New Jersey leading the way. The current number – 19.8 million – represents an increase of 35 per cent compared to 2010, when this group constituted 4.8 per cent of the total population.
The 24 million ‘Asian alone or in combination’ group makes up 7.2 percent of the US population. In California, the country’s most populous state, the ‘Asian alone’ group makes up 15 percent of the state’s population.
In addition, more than 75 percent of the US population was 18 years of age and older, which increased to 258.3 million. Let us tell you that the data of this population shows that many changes can be seen in the coming time in America. The biggest impact of this is going to be on the upcoming elections in America. This is going to have an impact in the 2022 House of Representatives election.
