U.S. White Birth Rate Boost: Majority of Births Once Again

The white birth rate in America has staged a near miraculous comeback and was a majority of live births in 2016—reversing a decade long decline—if the figures in the latest National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) report is accurate.
This new report, titled “Births: Provisional Data for 2016,” dated June 2017, although it was only released last week.
According to the report, the provisional number of births for the United States in 2016 was 3,941,109, down 1 percent from 2015.
The general fertility rate was 62.0 births per 1,000 women aged 15–44, down 1 percent from 2015 to a record low for the United States. 
Among the race and Hispanic origin groups, the number of births ranged from 9,342 births for non-Hispanic Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander (NHOPI) women to 2.054 million births for nonHispanic white women.
The report’s “Table 2: Births, by race and Hispanic origin of mother” claims that of the 3,941,109 births in 2016, some 2,054,564 were “white” nonHispanic.
This amounts to 52 percent of the total.
The other 48 percent (1,886,545 births) is made up as follows:
Black: 558,338; American Indian of Alaska Native: 31,432; Asian: 254,636; Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander: 9,342; and Hispanic: 915,917.
The Hispanic birth rate—one of the biggest drivers of the nonwhite population explosion of recent years—has, according to these figures, fallen substantially.
In 2016, it was reported that the Hispanic birth rate had slowed, and the latest figures may be confirmation of this fact.
The figures must however be taken with some caveats. Firstly, the racial classification system used by the U.S. government is notoriously inaccurate, and includes all those it calls “Caucasian” as white, even if they come from North Africa, Arab nations and the Middle East.
In addition, the self-classification system allows many mixed-race individuals, especially from central and south America, to classify themselves as “white” for status reasons.
Nonetheless, the latest figures indicate that the white birth rate has once again increased, and although there is a long way to go, any such increase will help to preserve America as a First World nation a little bit longer.
The U.S. Census Bureau predicted earlier that non-Hispanic whites will cease to be the majority racial group in America by 2044—only 27 years from now.

  1. The reason the NCHS statistic is misleading is because it cites the number of births by race of the mother, not race of the child.
    When counting in mixed race children the number of white births is less than 50% for 2016.
    Only white mothers can make white children but they also make nonwhite children at a rate between 5% and 10%.

    Non-hispanic white mothers also had the majority of children in 2015 so this isn't news.
    Sorry for the blackpill but by all measure the white birthrate is still in decline. The proportion of babies born to non hispanic white numbers was actually higher in 2015 Than 2016. It went from 53.5% in 2015 to 52.1% in 2016.

    We might be able to expect an actual bump in white birth rates in 2017 due to the Trump effect of right wingers (whites) being more romantically empowered in Trump's America.

  2. We need a huge update to the census in order to make it more detailed and accurately reflecting our population. We must once again add mixed/hybrid race categories like Mulatto, Mestizo, Eurasian, etc. Add new categories like Arabic, Middle-Eastern, and Indian. The final thing would be to end The Caucasian category and make it European. Make it clear that white = European.

  3. With Trump tossing out invaders over the next probably 7 and a half years this trend will continue. The bigger key is getting the wall up and then change legal immigration as he wants to do as well.. Certainly a better trend than having obama, Bush(both) and Clinton in there!!

  4. Using more distinct racial categories in either the census or NCHS statistics will most likely never happen because the ambiguity of race classifications serves the people who are trying to drive Whites into the minority. If Whites don't really know what their true population or birth rates are,they can't really create a strategy for population renewal. At the same time, leading Whites into a false sense of security that they're "making a comeback" or still in the majority (when they likely lost majority status a decade or more ago)can lead many to be complacent, while the real numbers continue to decrease without our knowledge. The only real answer is for Whites to have more children and keep having more children, regardless of what any of the numbers say.

    By the way, Caucasian is a legitimate racial term; "European" is a geographical designation. These days, anyone can be considered "European" now as long as they live in Europe, much the same way they delegitimized the title of "American". Only classification based on biological racial terms or phenotypic expression that cannot change regardless of country of residence will yield anywhere near accurate numbers.

  5. That's very interesting about the Globalists now trying to include Non-European ethnic groups as "Caucasian". Anthropologists know that there is one ABSOLUTE GENETIC MARKER for Non-Europeans, and that is BLACK HAIR. No European/Caucasian can have black hair. They can have very dark brown hair, but it cannot be fully black in pigment, because that is the marker for Non-Europeans.

  6. Ashkanazi Jews should also be a distinct category. Ultra-Orthodox Jews have a lot of "white" children – look at just one large Jewish enclave, Lakewood New Jersey. They alone produce over 4,000 new babies a year at the present time.

  7. For 2016, they started counting non-Hispanic mixed-race separately from single race. This knocked off about 2% from the non-Hispanic white percentage and 1% from the other races together. So the 53.5% in 2015 was more like 51.5% if you take into account the mixed-race mothers who were previously counted as white, but aren't any more.

  8. One thing to note is that while the census does count arabs as "white" if they mark themselves down as such, at least half the time if not more they will self-select via the 'other race' option, meaning they don't get counted as white.
