Part 3 (15 points)
Visit the US Census’s page About the Hispanic Population and its Origin (
According to the 2010 census 308.7 million people resided in the United States on April 1, 2010, an increase of 27.3 million people, or 9.7 percent, between 2000 and 2010. The vast majority of the growth in the population came from increases from which groups/populations?
Identify which population is numerically and proportionally the largest major race and ethnic group in the United States, and which population is also growing at the slowest rate.
Speculate on what changes you think will occur in census racial categories over the next fifty years. Keep in mind that census categories always reflect the prevailing notions of race and result from an intensely political process (the Omi and Winant article, “Racial Formations,” may be useful reading).
