Washington: The number of people of Asian origin in the US has grown faster than any other minority group in the last decade, and in 2020 their number has increased to 24 million. This information has been obtained from the detailed data released on the basis of last year’s census.
According to new data released by the US Census Bureau on Thursday, the increase in the US population in the last decade was due to minority communities. The number of white American citizens has decreased for the first time since the country’s establishment in 1776.
Non-Hispanavi white people make up just 58 percent of the US population and have fallen below 60 percent for the first time since the census began. In contrast, when the census was conducted in 2000, the number of non-Hispanavi white people was more than 69 percent of the population and in 2010 it was 63.7 percent.
20 million Asians in America
Statistics show that 20 million people are identified as “Asian” and another 4 million are “Asian” people who are mixed with other ethnic groups. Their total number is 7.2 percent of the population.
NBC News reported that this result shows that the Asian population is the fastest growing ethnic group in the US. Nicholas Jones, director of the Census Bureau’s Population Branch, said, “The American population is highly multiracial and has more ethnic and racial diversity than the last census.” Now the population here has become 331 crores. This growth rate is the slowest since the 1930s.
