Graph: Underrepresented Minorities and U.S. Population Growth

In our last post, I mentioned that according to recent Census data, underrepresented minorities account for the majority of America's population growth in the past decade. Here's how the numbers break down.


As I mentioned in the last post, with the way the Census reported this data, people who are Hispanic and also members of another underrepresented minority could be counted twice (inflating the number of underrepresented minorities), and people who belong to more than one underrepresented minority group (other than Hispanic) could be counted as multiracial instead of underrepresented (deflating the number of underrepresented minorities).
