Population Growth


Follow the link to the passage, then answer the following question:

According to paragraph 6, what are the population implications of the recent trends in fertility among racial and ethnic minorities?


If fertility rates continue to decline amongst racial and ethnic minorities, no racial or ethnic change will be seen in the U.S.


If current fertility trends continue, by the year 2042, more than half the population will be non-Hispanic white.


Immigration has had little to no effect on the racial makeup of the U.S., but fertility trends amongst racial and ethnic minorities could change that.


A continued and persistent decline in fertility rates of minorities could adversely affect the pace at which the minority population is growing in the U.S.
