Washington, Aug 14 (PTI) The number of people of Asian descent in the US has grown faster than any other minority group in the past decade, reaching 24 million in 2020. This information has been obtained from the detailed data released on the basis of last year’s census. According to new data released Thursday by the US Census Bureau, the increase in the US population in the last decade was due to minority communities.

The number of white American citizens has decreased for the first time since the country’s founding in the year 1776.

Non-Hispanavi white people make up just 58 percent of the US population and have fallen below 60 percent for the first time since the census began.

In contrast, when the census was conducted in 2000, non-Hispanavi white people made up more than 69 percent of the population and in 2010 it was 63.7 percent.

The data shows that 20 million people are identified as “Asian” and another 4 million are “Asian” people who are mixed with other ethnic groups. Their total number is 7.2% of the population.

NBC News reported that the results suggest that the Asian population is the fastest growing ethnic group in the US.

Nicholas Jones, director of the Census Bureau’s Population Branch, said, “The American population is highly multiracial and has more ethnic and racial diversity than the last census.”

The total increase in America’s population in the last decade was 7.4 percent and now the population here has increased to 331 million. This growth rate is the slowest since the 1930s.
