    Face of America changing

    From the Associated Press:

    Whites are now in the minority in nearly one in 10 US counties.

    And that increased diversity, fueled by immigration and higher birth rates among Blacks and Hispanics, is straining race relations and sparking a backlash against immigrantsin many communities.

    "There's some culture shock," said Mark Mather of the Population Reference Bureau, a Washington-based research agency. "But I think there is momentum building, and it is going to continue,"

    As of 2006, non-Hispanic Whites made up less than half the population in 303 of the nation's 3,141 counties, according to figures the Census Bureau is releasing Thursday. Whites were a minority in 262 counties in 2000, up from 183 in 1990.

    The Census Bureau's report has population estimates by race and ethnicity for every county in the nation. They are the first such estimates since Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast in 2005, scattering hundreds of thousands of people.

    The biggest changes were in Orleans Parish, La., home to New Orleans. The share of non-Hispanic Whites in Orleans Parish grew from 27% in 2005 to 34% in 2006, while the share of Blacks dropped from about 68% to 59%.

    Many of the nation's biggest counties have long had large minority populations. But now that diversty is spreading to the suburbs and beyond, causing resentment in some areas. Many Latinos say they see it in the debate over illegal immigration.

    Nationally, the number of minorities topped 100 million for the first time in 2006. By 2050, minorities will account for half of US residents, according to Census Bureau projections.

    Here are the 10 US counties with the highest percentage of non-Hispanic Whites in 2006;
    Slope County, N.D. 99.3%
    Scott County, Ill. 99.2%
    Wheeler County, Neb. 99.1%
    Hanson County, S.D. 99.1%
    Faulk County, S.D. 99.1%
    Hand County, S.D. 98.9%
    Magoffin County, Ken. 98.9%
    Garfield County, Mont. 98.9%
    Mitchell County, Iowa 98.9%


    These are the 10 Counties with the lowest percentage of non-Hispanic Whites;

    Starr County, Texas 2.1%
    Maverick County, Texas 3.5%
    Webb County, Texas 4.4%
    Wade Hampton, Alaska 5.2%
    Shannon County, S.D. 6%
    Zavala County, Texas 7.9%
    Brooks County, Texas 8.9%
    Hidalgo County, Texas 9.1
    Jim Hogg County, Texas 9.4%
    Willacy County, Texas 11%

    All of the counties with the highest or lowest percentage of non-Hispanic Whites are rural. Wade Hampton, Alaska is mostly populated by Amerindians who are indigenous to Alaska. Shannon County, South Dakota is entirely located within the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. All of the Texas Counties with so few Whites are sparcely populated and located in West Texas.

    I currently live in a county that 97.6% non-Hispanic White. But I still see Mexicans, Salvadorans & Negroes - usually at the local Wal-Mart. And one of my neighbors who raises beef cattle & maintains a dairy herd has a Mexican employee who resides along with his family on his farm. You can't get away from them anymore.

    Interesting, Americ. There are some Mexicans here now that have come to work on the dairy farms (same ol' story of the local whites who won't do the work) but one rarely sees them.

    I just looked up my county and we came in at 98.02% white. Again, I don't know who the other 1.98% are as it's only very very rare that I see a non-white.

    What states are the "whitest" in the US? N-Dakota? Minnesota?

    North Dakota, Montana, West Virginia, Maine, Vermont, Idaho, Wyoming, Iowa, and New Hampshire are all 90%+ white. Alaska and South Dakota get honorable mentions since nearly all of the nonwhites there are natives who live seperate from the rest of the population.

    States like Vermont, Maine and West Virginia are around 97%. They use to be closer to 100% White. And that was nearly all Nordish White, nothing exotic. Minnesota is 86% non-Hispanic White but 40 years ago it was around 98% White with the non-Whites living on reservations or in the Black Ghettos of the Twin Cities. Wisconsin is also around 87-88% non-Hispanic White but was also around 98% White in 1970 with most non-Whites concentrated in a few areas. Utah is similar to Minnesota and Wisconsin in being about 86% White where as in 1970 it was over 95% with nearly all non-Whites being Amerindians living on reservations. Washington & Oregon were similar to Utah in 1970 but Washington has drop down to about 80% & Oregon down to 85%. Iowa use to be 99% White is now about 93% because of Hispanic migration to rural areas. The Whitest regions of the US were also the most Nordish having been bypassed by the waves of immigration from southern & eastern Europe in the early 20th century.

    Btw, I have ever said how much I hate the phrase "non-Hispanic White".:

    I have'nt been to the UP of Michigan but I have been to Utah, Wyoming & Montana. Mexicans are starting to show up in Montana & Wyoming though nowhere near the numbers that are in Arizona or Colorado. As for Utah it is a fastgrowing state & that has attracted Hispanics seeking employment in the construction trade. The Hispanic population in that state is now about 10%. California was about 10% Hispanic (Mexican) in 1970. As for the Mormons they still have above replacement fertility but it is nowhere near as high as it was 30 years ago (nearly 4 children per woman). The cost of housing has increased significantly in Utah & other areas in the west with substantial Mormon populations & the Mormon TFR is probably between 2.6 to 2.9. The TFR in Utah (entire population, not just Mormon) is 2.3 . Impressive compared to other Whites, but still decreasing as the result of immigration not just of non-Whites to areas populated by Mormons but also from the dominoe effect of Whites leaving the overcrowded West Coast and going to inland areas with large Mormon populations.

    UP Michigan is more than balanced out by Detroit.

    Some additional information from the Census Bureau in connection with their annoucement that over 300 counties are majority-minority.

    Los Angeles County has the greatest numbers of Hispanics; 4.7 million.

    Los Angeles County had the second highest number of Blacks; 1 million. Cooke County, Illinois (Chicago) had the most at 1.4million.

    Los Angeles County has the greatest numbers of Asians; 1.4 million.

    Los Angeles County has the greatest numbers of American Indians & Alaskan Natives; 150,000.

    Los Angeles County had the second greatest numbers of Pacific Islanders with 59,000. Honolulu County has the most with 177,000.

    Los Angeles County has the greatest numbers of non-Hispanic Whites; 2.9 million. However about 600,000 of these are Jews. Los Angeles also has significant numbers of other exotic Caucasians (Whites) such as Armenians, Arabs & Persians.

    In case anyone is wondering, The City of New York, pop. 8 million, is divided between 5 different counties, the largest being Kings County (Brooklyn), pop. 2.5 million, which is why none of the New York counties has the greatest numbers of any group. There are however about 1.75 million Jews in the New York metro area but because they are spread out over several counties it seems likely that Los Angeles County has the greatest number of Jews.
