Race and ethnicity in the U.S.

For decades, America was a melting pot of the racial and ethnical diversity of its population. The number of people of different ethnic groups in the United States has been growing steadily over the last decade, as has the population in total. For example, 35.81 million Black or African Americans were counted in the U.S. in 2000, while 43 million Black or African Americans were counted in 2016.

The median annual family income in the United States in 2016 earned by Black families was about 49,365 U.S. dollars, while the average family income earned by the Asian population was about 93,498 U.S. dollars. This is more than 20,000 U.S. dollars higher than the U.S. average family income, which was 72,707 U.S. dollars.

The unemployment rate varies by ethnicity as well. In 2017, about 7.8 percent of the Dominican population and 7.5 percent of the Black or African American population in the United States were unemployed. In contrast to that, only 3.4 percent of the population with Asian origin was unemployed.
