U.S. Population Projections: 2005-2050

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on February 11, 2008

Pew Hispanic Center: “If current trends continue, immigrants arriving from 2005 to 2050 and their descendants will account for 82% of the population growth in the United States during this period, according to new projections from the Pew Research Center. The nation’s racial and ethnic mix will change markedly by mid-century, the projections show, with the Hispanic population tripling in size and increasing its share of the total to 29%. Among non-Hispanic race groups, the Asian share will rise to 9%, the black share will hold steady at 13% and the white share will fall to 47%.”
