    Generation Z will be the last generation of Americans with a white majority, according to census data. The nations so-called majority minority arrived with Generation Alpha, those born since about 2010. 
     
    Barely two decades from now, around 2045, non-Hispanic white people will fall below half as a share of the overall U.S. population. 

    Generational data from the 2020 census shows the upward march of racial diversity by age group. Non-Hispanic white people make up 77 percent of the over age 75 population, 67 percent of the age 55-64 population, 55 percent of the 35-44 cohort, and barely half of the 18-24 age group. Americas children are only 47 percent non-Hispanic white, according to [link=https://www.brookings.edu/articles/new-2020-census-data-shows-an-aging-america-and-wide-racial-gaps-between-generations/]an analysis released this week[/link] by William Frey, [link=https://www.brookings.edu/books/diversity-explosion-2/]a senior fellow[/link] at the Brookings Institution.
