The first results of the 2020 census in the United States have been released. One of the most pertinent conclusions is that the population of Hispanic or Latin descent has accounted for half of the U.S. population growth over the past ten years.
They total 62.1 million and already represent 18.7% of the population. There was a 16.3% increase in this population segment.
Since the 2010 census, almost all U.S. population growth has occurred in non-white communities (Click here to access the results)
For the first time in 231 years of the census, the number of whites is declining. This continues to be the majority (57.8%), but a smaller number (8.6%) than was calculated in the 2010 census. In total, 204.3 million people identified themselves as white last year.
The Asian community has grown significantly (35%). The proportion of blacks or African Americans increased, but much lower (5.6%).
A decade ago, 25% of the non-white American population was over 18 years old. Now it is 36%. In 2010, non-white youth — those under the age of 18 — accounted for 35% of the population. Now they represent almost half (47%).
The new American population map will impose a seat dance in Congress. The House is currently controlled by Democrats by a narrow margin of 220 votes to 212 for the Republicans. Strengthened large cities and suburbs, by contrast, were less populated and more than half (52%) in rural areas. In principle, this would be in favor of the Democrats in the November Assembly elections next year.
In Brazil, the census was delayed. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. The government did not pay IBGE the money needed to update the census. R $ 2 billion planned, But resources were diverted to a parallel budget to fund parliamentary amendments, which were under the control of central leaders.. This budget account has a total of $ 19 billion. The federal Supreme Court has ordered the state to conduct a ten-year survey until the middle of next year.
Political maneuvers have maintained frozen parliamentary representation for 28 years and are completely unbalanced in relation to the population. The Chamber Blenary consists of 513 delegates. The Supreme Court will rule on Barrow’s action to change the size of the seats in the thirteen states of the House, with consequences in the respective legislatures. This is valid for next year’s election.
