commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

US Census……America continues to become more diverse…..

Tell us something we didn’t know….

And also the new arrivals to this country have more births that the people here…

Their numbers will steadily increase……

As white baby boomers age past their childbearing years, younger Hispanic parents are having children – and driving U.S. population growth.

“The aging of baby boomers beyond young middle age will have profound impacts on our labor force, housing market, schools and generational divisions on issues such as Social Security and Medicare,” said William H. Frey, a demographer at the Brookings Institution. “The engine of growth for the younger population in most states will be new minorities.”

New Census estimates show minorities added more than 2 percent in 2009 to 107.2 million people, boosted by a surge in Hispanic births and more people who described themselves as multiracial. During this time, the white population remained flat, making up roughly 199.9 million, or 65 percent, of the country.

By comparison, whites comprised 69 percent of the total population in 2000, and minorities 31 percent.

Currently four states – Hawaii, New Mexico, California and Texas – as well as the District of Columbia have minority populations that exceeded 50 percent. That’s one state more than in 2000, when Texas was not on the list.

  1. Considering many Hispanics are boycotting the count, the number is probably higher.

    Technically it’s a day in Court and a $100.00 fine per name or even jail for contempt if you do not participate. Of course this means sending someone with authority from Commerce to your house and writing you out a ticket. Not cheap to do.

    Also the bigger fight you make, the more privacy you lose. Census workers look up your phone number, your land records often finding income properties, and also refer to the local census (which does not release the names of minors up to the age of 17 or 18) and accessors office.

    If you cooperate, no one cares so long as you don’t lie. ID yourself as Wilbur N. Winnipesaukee from Walla Walla, Peter D. Plum from Pittsburg, or Dick Hurtz from Holden and that can be a $500.00 fine if they bother to spend the money to investigate it.

    And you have to cooperate so long as you were living here on April 1st. It’s in Article one.
