"Whites Account for Under Half of Births in U.S." - New York Times. 05/17/2012.

According to the latest census data, whites account for less than half of all births in the U.S. Bill Frey says this is an important transformation for the nation, "from a mostly white baby boomer culture to the more globalized multiethnic country that we are becoming." Frey discusses the implications of this shift during a BBC interview.
