The most significant projections are the increase in the multiracial population (an increase of 42 percent or more than 90,000 persons) and decreases in the Asian population (a 20 percent drop or about 258,000 persons) and the White population (a drop of 17 percent or more than 441,000 persons). Despite numerical increases for Hispanics/Latinos, their percentage of the overall population is projected to only increase about 4 percent.

Although the black population is projected to lose only a small fraction of a percentage point, it still represents the loss of more than 63,000 people.
