Future looking more and more Hispanic

Hispanics accounted for ALL the growth in the youth population in the last decade ... without Hispanics, the number of young people in the U.S. would have declined from 2000-2010, according to the U.S. Census in a BusinessWeek article.

Hispanics under 20 now make up between 22-25% of that age group, up from 17 percent in 2000.

Based on the estimates, the non-Hispanic youth population declined somewhere between 1.25 million and 2.9 million.

"The U.S. population is becoming more diverse from youngest to oldest and Hispanics are the driving force behind this youth diversity," said Kenneth Johnson, a sociology professor at the University of New Hampshire, who reviewed the numbers.

The overall population is estimated between 306-313 million people.
