The Census Bureau issues its most detailed portrait yet of how the US has changed over the past decade, releasing a trove of demographic data.
The figures show continued migration to the South and Southwest, and population losses in the Mississippi Delta and Appalachia. The numbers also indicate that the white population is aging and has fallen to its smallest share of the total population on record. The population under age 18 is increasingly diverse.
The figures were supposed to be released by the end of March, but that deadline was pushed back because of delays from the pandemic.
