Change in U.S. White Population, 2010-2020

SUNDAY, APR 10, 2022

The 10 U.S. counties that have lost the greatest percentage of white, non-Hispanic residents over the decade are all majority-minority, according to a Social Explorer analysis of newly released American Community Survey. Among counties with more than 100,000 people, Clayton County, Ga., registered the biggest decrease in the number of white, non-Hispanic residents between 2010 and 2020, dropping 33 percent. It was followed by Imperial County, Calif. (-25.3 percent) and Hinds County, Miss. (-4.3 percent).

Not all of the counties that lost significant percentages of white residents were in rural areas; Bronx County, N.Y., registered a 17.7 percent decline in the number of white, non-Hispanic people, and the Washington, D.C., suburb of Prince George’s County, Md., recorded a 17 percent decline.
