The non-Hispanic white population of the U.S. has shrunk for the second year in a row, according to newly released Census data.

In the year through July 1, 2018, the white population decreased by 152,386, while the Hispanic population increased by 1,164,289 and the black population grew by 321,955, according to new population estimates released on Thursday by the Census Bureau.

Asians were the fastest growing racial group on a percentage basis, shooting up 2.63 percent for the year, or an absolute gain of 479,755.

The estimates in population growth, which are updated yearly, are a net figure that includes births, deaths and net migration. The Census does not distinguish how much of the growth is due to migration versus births.

The prior year through July 2017 was the first time that the nation’s white population shrank, a trend that is expected to continue as white birth rates lag behind deaths.

The data shows that the nation’s white population is aging rapidly, and that white Americans continue to delay starting a family.

‘The nation is aging — more than 4 out of every 5 counties were older in 2018 than in 2010. This aging is driven in large part by baby boomers crossing over the 65-year-old mark. Now, half of the U.S. population is over the age of 38.2,’ said Luke Rogers, the chief of the Population Estimates Branch at the Census Bureau.

‘Along with this general aging trend, we also see variation among race and ethnicity groups both in growth patterns and aging.’

At the state level, North Dakota was the only state to see a decline in its median age, from 37.0 years in 2010 to 35.2 in 2018.

In Texas, a key Republican stronghold that Democrats hope will shift to their column through demographic changes, the Hispanic population grew nine times faster than the white population last year.

The Hispanic population of Texas climbed to nearly 11.4 million — an annual gain of 214,736 through July 2018 and an increase of 1.9 million since 2010.

The white population of Texas, meanwhile, grew by just 24,075 last year, and roughly 484,000 since 2010. The state’s total white population was 11.9 million.

With 38 electoral college votes for presidential elections, Texas is second only to California.

Texas has voted Republican in every presidential election since 1976, when the state went for Jimmy Carter by a three-point margin, and a Democrat has not won statewide office since 1994.
