WHITE PEOPLE ARE DYING FASTER THAN THEY ARE BEING BORN

The U.S. Census Bureau says that in 2012 more white people died than were born. The experts say the trend is likely to continue in coming years. To find this, researchers simply subtracted the number of deaths from the number of births, and found a decrease of 12,400 people among the nation's 198-million non-Hispanic whites. Severak demographers say they are not aware of any other time in U.S. history when there was such a decrease in population among the dominant racial group. No other racial group showed a similar falloff. Researchers say this is happening in part because fertility rates have been slowly dropping since 2007, and for white women, they are now below the level considered necessary to keep the population at a stable level.
