New Report on Rural 2000-2010 Population Growth: White Pop Grew by 1%; Minorities by 21%.

Report from Carsey Institute is HERE

From the report: 
Between 2000 and 2010, the minority population, which included everyone other than non-Hispanic whites, accounted for 82.7 percent of the nonmetropolitan population gain, even though minorities represented just 21 percent of the rural population.

The minority population grew by 1.8 million (21.3 percent) during the decade compared with a gain of just 382,000 (0.95 percent) among the much more numerous non-Hispanic white population
