Diversity of Youth in America Suggests Shifting Demographics
USAFIS: Diversity of Youth

The number of Hispanic and non-white young people in the Generation Z group is on the rise, as the Millennial generation is aging out of the under 18 category

Over the past ten years, Asians saw the largest growth rate of any demographic group in the US, growing by close to 30 percent. Hispanics increased by 20 percent over the past decade, with three-fourths of the growth from natural increase. The US black population rose by close to 12 percent in the same time period, while the white population only grew by 4.3 percent.

The senior population in America has seen a huge increase since 2010 as Baby Boomers have joined the demographic. This group saw an increase of three percent over the past ten years. In Maine, West Virginia, Florida, and Vermont, seniors make up 20 percent of the population. It is predicted the entire US population will reach these numbers over the next ten years. Luke Rogers, the chief of the Census Bureau’s Population Estimates Branch, said, “The first Baby Boomers reached 65 in 2011. No other group saw such a fast increase.” For the first time in America, Hispanics and nonwhites were a majority in those under 16 years in 2019. The demographic shift is predicted to continue to increase over the coming years, according to the US Census Bureau.
