Very informative. Give it a whirl (even if you have to give the Old Gray Lady a hit). It's worth it.

Guess this means they won’t be bugging me to fill mine out any more.

Good riddance.

One obvious problem is that this website counts Hispanic as a separate race and the Census Bureau does not.

You sure about that? With such a large Hispanic population in this country, I find it hard to believe that our pc-infected government wouldn't list them as a separate ethnic group.

http://www.census.gov/population/www/socdemo/race/racefactcb.html
“People of Hispanic origin may be of any race and should answer the question on race by marking one or more race categories shown on the questionnaire, including White, Black or African American, American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian, Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander, and Some Other Race. Hispanics are asked to indicate their origin in the question on Hispanic origin, not in the question on race, because in the federal statistical system ethnic origin is considered to be a separate concept from race.”

Hovering down the west coast in CA there is a stampede of whites out of the counties (and presumably out of the state!) and Hispanics in.

Hovering around central FL there is a huge increase in Hispanics mid-state on the “I-4 corridor”...and I don't think they are GOP Cubans!

It is amazing how the rural counties (the tan ones) are being hollowed out.

Thanks for posting the instruction to Hispanics from the Census Bureau. I guess since I’m not Hispanic, I paid it no mind when I got my form.

So your original question is a valid one. Where did the NY Times get the data about Hispanics?

Out of the old wazoo?

You bet, but the source of the data on Hispanics is in question. Apparently, the Census Bureau doesn't list any such ethnic group. See upthread.

Well, we can all see with our own two eyes that Hispanics are growing in number, but the question remains - how did the NY Times come up with these figures, when the US Census Bureau doesn't have a category for "Hispanic", and requests that anyone who falls into that group checks another box?

The census treats the cultural Hispanic category separately from the biological race category and asks for information on both. On the 2010 census form (http://www.census.gov/schools/pdf/2010form_info.pdf) Hispanicness is question 8 and race is question 9 (questions 5&6 for people other than the primary one) :

NOTE: Please answer BOTH Question 8 about Hispanic origin and Question 9 about race. For this census, Hispanic origins are not races.

8. Is Person 1 of Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish origin?
_ No, not of Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish origin
_ Yes, Mexican, Mexican Am., Chicano
_ Yes, Puerto Rican
_ Yes, Cuban
_ Yes, another Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish origin — Print origin, for example, Argentinean, Colombian, Dominican, Nicaraguan, Salvadoran, Spaniard, and so on.
________________________

9. What is Person 1’s race? Mark one or more boxes.
_ White
_ Black, African Am., or Negro
_ American Indian or Alaska Native — Print name of enrolled or principal tribe. __________________
_ Asian Indian
_ Chinese
_ Filipino
_ Other Asian — Print race, for example, Hmong, Laotian, Thai, Pakistani, Cambodian, and so on. _____________________
_ Japanese
_ Korean
_ Vietnamese
_ Native Hawaiian
_ Guamanian or Chamorro
_ Samoan
_ Other Pacific Islander — Print race, for example, Fijian, Tongan, and so on. ___________________
_ Some other race — Print race. ______________

Tried using the data to fill in Travis’ CWII Cube theory. The amount of racial data is overwhelming, making simple analysis a real hassle.

I don't know which county you are talking about, but here are some numbers that come close with 20 families of 4 moving out:

Population 1000 920 -8%
Occupied Housing 250 230 -8%
Unoccupied Housing 29 49 +69%
Total Housing 279 279 +0%
If you have a population that goes from 1000 to 920, but the vacant housing goes from

CWII would be chaotic. We’re not divided geographically, but ideologically/sociologically.

What this shows is that the government is lying about the number of illegals here. One need only to mouse over every county in their state to see the incease...there are vastly more illegals here than the government will admit.

True. Sort of explains our politicians' pandering to them, doesn't it? Numbers USA is going to have a field day with this.

Tell you one thing that shocked me, was the distribution of blacks in the US. I would have expected them to be much more widely spread, but apparently their greatest concentration is still in the Deep South. I would have never guessed.

I had to look at that after a good night's sleep to see what you were talking about. I see it now. Apparently, there's a huge swath in the middle of the country that's losing population. We may be looking at big agri-business displacing family farms.

Very interesting! I guess one is certain, California is rapidly becoming majority controlled by Hispanics, with Texas right behind it. Florida has it’s fair share too but the only two really bad counties are Miami Dade and Broward. My county’s numbers are fine with me but Charlotte and Sarasota counties look even better.

Well one thing seems certain, the Hispanics like warm weather and to get away from them you have to live in cold states. Anything below 50 is not acceptable to me so I’m SOL if I wanted to move to another state. If I have to live with them, might as well spend more time at other home down South. At least them are nice and it’s much cheaper to live there.

In Florida Charlotte and Sarasota counties look good as of now. Jackson County, AL, good numbers, NE Georgia, SW Indiana most of W. Virginia... etc. You can still get away from them. My county is good right now, so I’ll say right where I am.

Looking at the numbers of African Americans, it appears they aren’t too keen on cold weather either.

You are exactly right but most counties do tend to lean one way or the other. States, not so much.

It looks clear to me the rural areas are emptying out and people are going to the big cities. Places like kansas, nebraska, and the dakotas don’t have many big cities so they get lots of the brown shaded counties. It also appears the old manufacturing cities of the great lakes areas are losing people while their adjacent suburbs are gaining. Wyoming is a mystery to me. I can’t figure out why they would be gaining people.

You can run, but you can't hide forever. They're coming to a neighborhood near you, soon.

If the next administration doesn't do something effective to combat this menace, we're done.

My old census tract is Los Angeles County. Whites -8%, Blacks -10%, Hispanics +11%.

Not as exaggerated a movement as what happened to your old home town, but L.A. got hit by the illegal wave a long time ago.
