Immigration is decreasing, but the birth rate among minorities indicates that by 2043 whites will no longer be in the majority.
The total U.S. population should climb to 420 million by 2060, with whites making up 43 percent. Hispanics, currently 17 percent of the population, will jump to 31 percent, or nearly 1 in 3 residents. Blacks will make up 14.7 percent, up slightly.
The point when minority children become the majority is expected to occur in 2019; last year, minorities became the majority among U.S. newborns.
