Graphic: Changing Face of America by Pew Research Center


The chart shows the present and future fluctuations in racial populations in the United States of America from 1960 to 2060. Much of the information presented in this chart is hypothetical, or projections, because some of the time periods listed, example the year 2020 or 2030 have not happened yet.

The chart shows that Caucasians are experiencing a decline in numbers at an average rate of twenty percent every forty years. Despite the decline, they are still the most populous race of the five listed.

Negroids are the second largest race, however their growth is almost level, with blacks making about ten percent of the population in 1960s and about 13 percent of the population in the year 2060.

On the other hand, the population of Hispanics is surging and is expected to double in the next fifteen years.

Asians and ‘Other’ make up a marginal part of the population, and although both sectors are experiencing growth, it is minuscule.
