Race and ethnicity in the U.S.

For decades, America was a melting pot for 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 people with Black or African origin were counted in the U.S. in 2000, while 41.62 million Black or African Americans were counted in 2013.

The financial and educational situation varies greatly between the races and ethnicities living in the United States.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 27.2 percent of the black population and 25.6 percent of the Hispanics were living below the poverty line in the year 2012, while only 9.7 percent of the white, non-Hispanic population was living below the poverty line, which means their annual income was less than 11,945 U.S. dollars. The median annual family income in the United States in 2012 earned by Black families was about 40,517 U.S. dollars, while the average family income earned by the population with Asian origin was about 77,864 U.S. dollars. This is more than 10,000 U.S. dollars higher than the U.S. average family income, which was 62,241 U.S. dollar.

About 11,483 Bachelor’s degrees were earned by American Indian or Alaskan Native students, while 1,211,565 people of the White population earned a Bachelor’s degree in higher education in 2012. American students typically earn a Bachelor’s degree for an undergraduate course of study and it is normally completed in 4 years, after completing their studies they have to apply for work. In 2013, 13.6 percent of the Puerto Rican population and 13.1 percent of the Black or African-American population in the United States were unemployed. In contrast to that, only 5.2 percent of the population with Asian origin was unemployed.
