The face of the new nebraskan is BLACK and Hispanic according to birth rate trends. White families will soon be eclipsed by the new brown welfare majority.
If even NEBRASKA is falling, what does that say about the fate of the nation?
Nebraska’s fertility rates have continued to climb relative to the U.S. average since 2000. During the 1990s, Nebraska’s rate was at or below the national average, but has since climbed to be 17 percent higher than the national rate in 2016. In fact, Nebraska was one of just five states to outpace the notable Total Fertility Rate (TFR) average of 2,100 births per 1,000 women over a lifetime, or 2.1 births per woman, the number needed to “replace” the current population.
The rates in Nebraska are particularly noteworthy for both Hispanic and non-Hispanic Black women between the ages of 15 and 44; the two groups are 30 percent and 50 percent higher than the national average, respectively.
According to the report, the fertility rate for Hispanic women in Nebraska has been above the national average since 1991. Nebraska Hispanic fertility rates were over 120 births per thousand women from 1992 to 2008, before falling sharply to less than 100 during and after the recession. However, the U.S. rate fell even more sharply, increasing the differential between local and national rates.
Comparatively, the fertility rate for non-Hispanic Black women in Nebraska has consistently been above the national average and was essentially tied with Hispanic women in 2004 and 2005 at 30 percent over the national average. Nebraska Black fertility rates only dipped slightly during the recession and have held steady thereafter; with the national Black rate falling, the local differential increased to be 50 percent higher than the national average in 2016.
