Census 2020 Results Show Jump in Latino and Mixed-Race Americans



Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Dr. Manuel Pastor, Director of USC's Equity Research Institute


The United States 2020 Census results are starting to be published, delayed by months due to the pandemic, and marred by the Trump Administration’s attempts to undermine the counting of diverse populations. White Americans remain the majority of the population by far. However, the Census showed that for the first time ever, the White population shrank over the past 10 years. Latino or Hispanic populations have grown most rapidly, followed by mixed-race Americans, and then by Asians. Native Americans and Alaska natives also saw a surprising rate of growth. There was a marked decline in the under-18 population.

Dr. Manuel Pastor is Distinguished Professor of Sociology and American Studies & Ethnicity at the University of Southern California. Pastor holds an economics Ph.D. from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, is the inaugural holder of the Turpanjian Chair in Civil Society and Social Change, and he currently directs the Equity Research Institute (ERI).
