Michigan Population by Age, Sex, Race, and Hispanic Origin: 2010

ANALYSIS

Chart 1 shows that Non-Hispanic whites account for 89 percent of Michigan's population at age 90. Another 9 percent of Michigan residents at that age are non-Hispanic blacks, leaving only 2 percent in other categories. Those percentages reflect the race distribution of Michigan's population when these people were born ninety years ago.

The percentage of Michigan residents who are non-Hispanic whites falls progressively for younger ages to only 65% for infants under 1 year of age. Blacks account for 17 percent of infants and other categories account for the remaining 18 percent.

Chart 2 shows similar data for Hispanics, Asians, and people for whom more than one race is reported. All three of these categories account for very small percentages in the oldest age groups, but they comprise much higher percentages of the total as age decreases. Hispanics account for 9 percent of Michigan's infants while non-Hispanics for whom more than one race was reported account for nearly 6 percent and non-Hispanic Asians account for nearly 3 percent.

The smooth exponential change for the multiracial category reflects increasing rates of intermarriage as well as possible changes in patterns of data reporting. For Asians and Hispanics, however, there is a notable bulge from the ages of 20 to 35. This reflects high levels in immigation by young adults, including a substantial number of Asian students who are temporary residents of Michigan. The high number of Hispanic children relative to other age groups reflects high fertility rates among Hispanics while the low number of Asian children relative to other age groups reflects very low fertility rates.

Each of the race categories shown in Chart 3 represents less than 1 percent of Michigan's population. Native Americans represent about 0.6 percent of Michigan's population below age 50 but a progressively smaller percentage for older ages. The difference between the older and younger ages largely reflects differences in racial identification rather than patterns of fertility or migration.

Although the Census Bureau's race categories are intended to encompass the entire population, an "Other Race" category is provided to accommodate individuals who feel that they do not fit into any of the other categories provided. A portion of Michigan's Arab population may be reported in this category. The rapid growth of this category with decreasing age suggests high levels of immigration and fertility.

Pacific Islanders represent a very small percentage of Michigan's population at all age levels.
