The Geography of White Population Loss

William H. Frey, Brookings, April 30, 2015

The white population is barely growing and, in about 10 years, will begin to decline–a consequence of an old age structure, fewer births, more deaths, and little immigration. What that means is that many places, especially those experiencing out-migration, are already experiencing white population losses. During the first decade of this century, white population losses were registered for 15 states, nearly half of our 360 metropolitan areas, and over half of our 3,100 counties.

Where are the losses occurring? A look at white growth and decline over the 1990-2010 period provides a perspective (see map, from my book “Diversity Explosion”). Some areas that are seeing declines in their white population caused by migration–particularly many counties in the Great Plains, the Midwest, and parts of the South–are also experiencing an excess of deaths over births in their white populations.

    Good ol’ Mr. Frey. Always trying to convince Whites – in roundabout fashion – that the overall situation is hopeless. He puts the same spin on everything.

    • David

      “Diagnosis is the first step toward rehabilitation.”

      “Lies profit men nothing.”

    • Susannah

      He is certainly predictably insufferable. What is (almost) laughable is that such a staid-looking old geezer is such an energetic cheerleader for diversity. He looks like he would fit in less with “diversity” than almost anyone I know.

      • Northern American-Nationalist

        Typical Boomer foolishness. Now that they’re mostly in their elderhood, this is their last and best chance to fight their moral crusades. They will get increasingly bold and desperate, but by the 2030’s, it’ll be over one way or another.

    • Jason Lewis

      I actually like him saying it. I want more people, especially the young, to read it and be influenced to have more babies. Although some spoke of it, I wish this kind of talk was more prevelent 20 years ago.

      • nordicman

        I hope whites do wake up and have more babies soon. I do think lots of this is meant to demoralize us.

    • listenupbub

      The situation probably is hopeless.

      • Veritas

        Actually, demographic trends could be reversed rather rapidly if whites wake up and start producing more white children. A campaign to promote this should be the number one priority of white western governments, rather than the importation of third world immigrants.

        • Jason Lewis

          We need ten million Duggar families.

          • Rob

            There is a Catholic family in Michigan taht has 12 sons and the wife is having another child and they think it is going to be another boy. We need more white families like these to breed or the west is gone forever.

      • Illidan Stormragge

        Right now, not in my view. The two decades he spoke of had the growth of white non-hispanics be 11 million, the size of a small European country, from 188 to 197 million. From 2010 to 2013–2014 data not out yet–there were 1 million more. So at least today the population is growing. Who knows what will happen 10 years from now. As boomers die the numbers will probably decline but who knows.

        • nordicman

          The thing is, the whites in the future will be more prowhite, less liberal, as they will be forced to deal with fighting to survive. George Lincoln Rockwell once called this the ‘lure of the exotic’ meaning whites get bored easily when they’re comfortable and need challenges.

          • TrueNorthFree

            I agree. I DO think that many whites are slowly waking up to the demographic tsunami on the horizon and saying “oh crap, what are we gonna do now”.
            I believe this because yesterday in the British elections almost 4 million Brits voted for UKIP, the racist, anti-immigration party.
            That number is just a start and it will grow. The leftists can no longer dismiss white race realists as fringe Nazis, not in Britain anyway.

        • listenupbub

          There are some trends that should logically lead to issues in the growth of the white population, but I will not bore you with the arguments.

          It is always hard to tell what will happen in the future.

          One thing is for certain: you seem to be seeing more and more nonwhite faces every year.

          • Illidan Stormragge

            That’s more so because of {stupid} immigration policies.

  • HJ11

    Have more fully White babies. Start being fully White again and stop with the self and group low esteem. Be White!

    • Speedy Steve

      Kill your television

      • Tim

        I saw a road side sign that said, “Kill your Television. It`s Poison!…-signed Your Computer”

      • TrueNorthFree

        I cancelled my cable TV years ago and it was one of the best things I ever did for myself.

  • Illidan Stormragge

    I have an excel spreadsheet of every state’s non-hispanic white population for the most recent years and decades prior. Much of the population loss is in very blue states, namely NJ, NY, Cali, Delaware, RI, IL, you name it. Much of the growth is in red states but also the breadbasket Midwest: Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana, but also Pennsylvania. But growth is slowing in every state except Utah, because of Mormons.

    It really is shocking to see the rate of increase of the South’s white population, which was roughly equal to the North’s as early as the 50s and now is double that number. The trend is pointing in that direction still.

    • LexiconD1

      It’s the white Californians leave the state. Every time someone leaves I ask where they are going. It’s ALWAYS the south.

      • Illidan Stormragge

        I agree but there is also a clear difference between red states virtually no one immigrates to, like Alabama, Kansas, or Kentucky, and blue states generally. More conservative environments have more kids.

        • Exuberant Auditor

          That’s right. Of the fifty states, only seven are still reproducing above replacement rate, i.e. increasing naturally: Utah, South Dakota, Idaho, Alaska, North Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas. (in that order)

      • LAGERTHA

        Many have moved to Idaho or Montana to be as far away from the diversity BS, as possible. Some of the most racially-conscious Whites are from California. Many of us are still in shock from the massive Illegal Immigration that has been imposed upon us in such a short period of time. Over the past 30 years we have been subjected to 30 million
        Mestizo, Asian, East Indian, and now Arab invaders! The U.S. has well over 50 million, at least, lurking in the shadows.

        Why do you think HRC/Liberal Swine is willing to swing so left??

        The scumbags that have allowed this to happen to the Whites who have respected the “social contract” of our society, will be added to “The list”.

        • Illidan Stormragge

          True, Texas gets so many Californians. And most die-hard liberals wouldn’t be caught dead moving to Texas. California also has more white people than a dozen or so US states combined, well for now.

          • LAGERTHA

            Yeah, California is a big state. Most Whites live in the Northern half, especially the Sierra Nevadas. Those of us that have lived through the destruction of this once great state that was considered #1 in standard of living are either finding pockets along the coast or running for the hills, so to speak. SoCal has become a cesspool of stack&pack poverty and crime, along with the urban centers. My husband and I avoid these areas like the plague. Much too dangerous!!

            We know several families that have moved to the Texas Hill Country and just love it! Glad to know Texas is holding their own.

          • TrueNorthFree

            Texas has a huge and growing population of Muslims. I wonder why they would want to live in Texas, maybe they like the conservative nature of the state?

      • Jason Lewis

        Unfortunately many of them go to places like Colorado and turn it blue. They flee violence and poverty and don’t associate the dominating political party. They’re trying to do it to Texas now.

        • corvinus

          The rule appears to be that those states with good scenery (Colorado and Washington most notably) get the rich liberal Californians.

    • phillyguy

      The south’s white population growth is increasing with the northern exodus and retirees.

      • Susannah

        Correct. I live in a southern state that was never considered a mecca for transplants, but at least in certain areas of the state, northern and midwestern transplants have become common. I encounter many transplants in the middle-class suburb in which I live. In fact, my in-laws who live nearby are originally from Boston and New York.

      • SentryattheGate

        AND, the US South has been targeted to become the new “country within a country” via mass Latino immigration!

      • Illidan Stormragge

        That doesn’t explain all of the growth however. I think it’s clear the conservative environment boosts it. Ex: Kansas has had net out-migration for years and still manages, according to my census datasets, positive white population growth.

    • listenupbub

      The growth in the south is from northerners moving down.

      • Sid Ishus

        Us Southrons are so lucky.

      • Illidan Stormragge

        Hopefully they don’t turn the states blue.

        • listenupbub

          North Carolina is going blue. It has been blue on the state level for forever.

      • corvinus

        The term is “Damnyankees”, I believe.

        • listenupbub

          I’m okay with Northerners in general. I just don’t like the fact that they tend to bring race non-realism with them into areas that have been race-realist in the past.

          • Mike

            I’ve been trying to spread the information up here.

    • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

      All of the NY/NJ Yankees came to Northern VA and destroyed it. They’ve done it in NC (Cary NC stands for “Containing Area’s Rich Yankees), South FL and are supposedly doing it in Tennessee now. It’s good to have whites in the South, but we’re getting the wrong kind.

      • Cuddles

        Lefty loons the Norman Lear types.

      • Illidan Stormragge

        Sad.

      • Speedy Steve

        Fly more battle flags!

  • Easyrhino

    We should format an alliance with Russia to allow more family oriented Russian babes to immigrate to the USA

    • Illidan Stormragge

      Russians more family oriented? Whose idea is that?

    • LHathaway

      White women imported here have propped up the White population. How much longer such a transfer can prop us up is up to debate especially considering White birth rates are declining world wide (and not declining solely do to white women moving to the new world).

    • Northern American-Nationalist

      No more foreigners!

  • dd121

    No surprise, this is part of the left’s plan for us.

  • Another sign of the disappearance of a civilization. And it all started with liberalism and only took about sixty odd years, and here we are.

  • LHathaway

    The White population is growing. . . Oh the union will last so much longer then . . .

  • Sid Ishus

    The white population is barely growing and, in about 10 years, will begin to decline—a consequence of an old age structure, fewer births, more deaths, and little immigration. ” (No mention miscegenation.)

    • Illidan Stormragge

      I don’t believe miscegenation is really that harmful to the growth rate. It’s mostly about fertility.

      • Sid Ishus

        That’s not what I see on the streets. So many White women with negro sprogs in tow.

        • Cuddles

          Where are you?

          • Sid Ishus

            In Little Rock.

          • Sid Ishus

            Central Arkansas.

        • Illidan Stormragge

          I live in NYC. Don’t see it too often, though I have seen it a few times. And I assumed if it doesn’t happen too often in leftie miscegenation center then it’s very common elsewhere.

        • RaySist27

          I see a lot of White grandparents taking care of their biracial grandchildren. It’s a sad sight.

  • Capn Dad

    White flight is quite evident here in Dixie. All my neighbors are ex Yankees.

    • corvinus

      I think you mean Damnyankees.

      Here out West, it’s Californians.

  • Circus Circus

    With departure of Whites, so goes tax base. Too bad.

    • Cuddles

      I thought blacks and Hispanics are eager to pick up the slack and/or burden????

  • Caucasoid88

    Part of me thinks it’s an unimaginable tragedy that whites are slowly disappearing from the Earth. But another part of me looks forward to everyone else eating each other alive when it happens.

    If they can’t find it in their bitter hearts to be thankful the Industrial Revolution catapulted worldwide excess and population numbers, then they can kiss my white ass.

    • Illidan Stormragge

      At the moment in the US they are not. But in the future it looks like it.

      • Caucasoid88

        It won’t happen, I was being dramatic. Whites won’t disappear. We like each other too much. Yes, even the liberals. (Have you seen their mating and migratory habits?)

        • Illidan Stormragge

          There’s white population growth in South Africa today (for now) and especially in the country north of it–I forget its name–Namibia. The white communities there live mostly amongst themselves.

  • Hilis Hatki

    We have reached the high water mark of white Americans.
    Better not wave the wrong flag.

  • Tony Murphy

    Yes, it never seems to dawn on the vibrants that once YT goes their own standard of living will plummet. USA will be like Brazil today where wealth is almost uniformly correlated to color. With as always blacks at the bottom of the heap. But in the new USA/Brazil the small number of Whites could not – and will not – pick up the tab for all of their free stuff.

  • Earl P. Holt III

    Getting as far from them folkses as a human being can, and still remain in the United States…

    • Jason Lewis

      That’s my plan.

  • nordicman

    Steal and kill from those few whites still around here.

    • TrueNorthFree

      South Africa in North America.

  • Rob

    It is not just the demise of the whiet race, but also brain power. By replacing whites with non whites and also stupid whites mating with negreos, we are just creating a lower race of people that will not sustain civilization. That is soemthing liberals know because they want their kids to amrry whiets, but sadly do not want other whites to enjoy and preserve their race.

  • TrueNorthFree

    We gotta breed more.
    Seriously! Have you seen the fertility rates of Muslims? They are birthing litters for Gods sake (or for Allahs sake)
    Demographics is our destiny, brothers and sisters!

  • Shadrach

    Another case of White Mothers in dereliction of duty.
