Early findings from the 2020 census showed that the U.S. population is more racially diverse than in previous years and the percentage of Americans self-identifying as mixed-race has surged since 2010, in the video published on Aug. 12, 2021, “Census Shows Sharply Growing Numbers of Hispanic Asian and Multiracial“, below:
U.S. Census Bureau officials said Thursday, August 12, 2021, in the video published on Aug. 12, 2021, “JUST IN: 2020 Census Shows US Is More Diverse And Multiracial Than Ever Before“, below:
This video is presented by James Whitehorne, chief of the redistricting and voting rights data office at the US Census Bureau, and Nicholas Jones, senior adviser on Race, Ethnicity, Research, and Outreach at the US Census Bureau, to answer common questions about 2020 Census data release. These data are used for redistricting. Redistricting is the process in which all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico redraw the boundaries of congressional state legislative and many types of districts. Most of this is based on census data.
Below are statistics that are included in the redistricting data: population counts as well as demogaphic characteristics including race, ethnicity, and voting age, and all levels of geography down to the block level, allowing data pertaining to how many people live in each state, county, and block.
- Voting age population
- Hispanic origin
- Homes are occupied or vacant
- Group quarters

Census 2020 showed that between 2010 and 2020, there is an increase of 330+ million people in United States.
The US grew more diverse during the past decade. 2020 U.S. Census data reveals the most diverse population in the history of the country. The Asian population in the U.S. increased by 35 percent during past decade. The Hispanic population grew by 23 percent during the same period. Overall, the number of people who identify as multi-racial increased by a striking 276 percent: from 9 million to 33.8 million. The U.S. is much more multiracial and much more racially and ethnically diverse than what we measured in the past, Nicholas Jones, Census Bureau’s Population Division, via ‘The Washington Post’. For the first time since 1790, the census reported a shrink in the number of people who only identify as white… … from 223.6 million ten years ago, to 204.3 million in 2020. Researchers with the Brookings Institute say that declining birthrates and the opioid epidemic likely factor into the shift. The overall growth of population in the U.S. during the 10 years between the census was 7.4 percent, the lowest since the 1930s. The percentage of white people fell from 63.7% to 57.8%. , in the video published on August 13, 2021, “The US Grew More Diverse Over the Past Decade“, below:
The growth in the American population over the last decade was driven entirely by minority communities, according to new data released Thursday, August 12, 2021, by the U.S. Census Bureau, as the number of white Americans declined for the first time since the nation’s founding, in the video published on Aug. 12, 2021, “Census shows US growth driven by minorities; white pop falls under 60 percent“, below:
In the video published on April 2, 2008, “Being Multiracial in America | The New York Times“, below:
The term ‘mixed race’ is one that didn’t appear on the census until 2001, but it is now the fastest growing ethnic minority in the UK, with the number of mixed race expected to rise to 2.2 million by 2021. But do people of a mixed race heritage identify with the term? Newsnight producer Scarlett Barter, who has a black mother and white father, has been examining her own mixed identity and reveals that it is much more complicated than it may seem, in the video published on March 8, 2018, “Where does the rise of identity politics leave people of mixed race? – BBC Newsnight“, below:
