Oh, Baby!: USA Gets More Diverse As Minority Infants Become The New Majority

nursery 2012 05 17

For the first time ever in the history of the USA, minority babies younger than age 1 are the majority.

According to new census figures, 50.4% of births in America this past year were from minorities, with Latinos leading the way.

While we're excited about the news of ever-growing diversity in our country, we're a little confused. When caucasians stop being the majority, do we start calling "minorities," "majorities?"

This is about to get really interesting.

DiD yOu KnOw? ... You can use the Census's American FactFinder to see all of the Census data for anywhere in the country, including your neighborhood! It's actually pretty interesting stuff. Want to try it out? Visit the website, here.
