Diversity Explosion: The Cultural Generation Gap Mapped

The Brookings Institution just released this new interactive map:


which showcases the demographics trends in every county and metropolitan area by age group. So I thought this would be a good thread to discuss future American demographics (we have another one about demographics today, but that's obviously not germane)

So if you want to know the future of place, just look at its children today. Here's the racial breakdown of children ages 0-4 for select metro areas. The Metropolitan Area will likely look like this in 2050. If the number is below 10%, it's usually not posted.

MSAs by 0-4 racial demographics
Atlanta: 38% white, 34% black, 18% Hispanic
Austin: 45% Hispanic, 40% white
Boston: 61% white, 18% Hispanic
Chicago: 42% white, 31% Hispanic, 17% black
Dallas: 40% Hispanic, 36% white, 15% black
Denver: 52% white, 33% Hispanic
Detroit: 57% white, 27% black
Houston: 48% Hispanic, 28% white, 16% black
Las Vegas: 43% Hispanic, 32% white
Los Angeles: 60% Hispanic, 19% white
McAllen: 96% Hispanic
Miami: 45% Hispanic, 26% black, 24% white
Minneapolis: 65% white
New York: 38% white, 32% Hispanic, 16% black
Orlando: 39% white, 34% Hispanic, 19% black
Philadelphia: 51% white, 23% black, 15% Hispanic
Portland: 63% white, 20% Hispanic
San Antonio: 64% Hispanic, 25% white
San Diego: 47% Hispanic, 33% white
San Francisco: 33% Hispanic, 30% white, 21% Asian
Seattle: 53% white, 17% Asian
Tampa: 50% white, 26% Hispanic, 16% black
Washington: 38% white, 24% black, 23% Hispanic

The county changes are pretty insane. Places like SW Kansas or the Oklahoma Panhandle are undergoing gigantic racial swings. Texas County, Oklahoma went from 89% white with its 80+ demographic to 64% Hispanic with 0-4.
