The Decline of the White Population in the U.S.

MONDAY, NOV 29, 2021

Despite an overall decline in the number of white, non-Hispanic Americans younger than 18 over the last decade, some of the nation’s most urban counties reported increases, according to a Social Explorer analysis of 2020 Census data.

Among counties with more than 100,000 children, the District of Columbia registered a 54 percent increase in the number of white children. It was followed by Denver County, Colo. (25.2 percent); San Francisco County, Calif. (12.9 percent); Dekalb County, Ga. (11.5 percent); and Hudson County, N.J. (11.3 percent). Use Social Explorer’s cutting-edge mapping and report tools to see where the numbers of white children have increased (and declined) in your county.
