Latest Census Data By Race and Age
Newly released Census data on race/ethnicity by age shows our rapid demographic transformation.
Nationally, 80 percent of seniors are white and only in a few counties are most seniors people of color. But the younger population looks vastly different: the majority of babies born in the last two years were nonwhite, and across the country—from our largest cities to suburbs, small towns, and rural areas—young Americans are increasingly people of color.
Today we released a new animated map illustrating this stark racial and generational divide. Please view the map, share it, and share in the comments what you think it means for our nation’s future.
