According to statistics, the population grew by 7.4 percent in the last decade, a slower rate compared to any other similar period since the 1930s.

There were more deaths than births in more than half of the country’s counties, and although rural areas were more prone to have natural decreases, urban areas also had deaths.

These decreases are alarming indicators of a long-term loss, according to Kenneth Johnson, main demographer at Carsey School at the University of New Hampshire, because those trends are rarely reversed, The Hill daily reported.

Meanwhile, experts associate the decline in the white sector and low growth in general with lower birth rates that reached their lowest numbers in generations in the years following the Great Recession (2008).

In turn, the population is much more multiracial and diverse from the racial and ethnic point of view compared with what we measured in the past, Nicholas Jones, from the Population Division, said.

However, the most remarkable impact 10 years ago occurred in the minority communities, especially among Latinos and Asians, because the number of white Americans has decreased for the first time since the foundation of the nation.
