This past year marked a turning point for the White Non-Hispanic population which declined for the first time ever, 10 years before the U.S. Census projection. Multicultural segments made up 100% of U.S. population growth last year according to recently released 2016 ACS.

Looking to the future, the Multicultural population in the U.S. is projected to reach 131 million in 2018. This tipping point is causing many marketers to reconsider with which segments to lead their growth efforts.
