On: April 7, 2008Re: Global White Population to Plummet to Single Digit—Black Population to DoubleFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEFr: National Policy Institute, Inc.POB 3465Augusta GA 30914www.nationalpolicyinstitute.org706-736-4884As a percentage of world inhabitants the white population will plummet to a single digit(9.76%) by 2060 from a high-water mark of 27.98% in 1950.The study was conducted by William H. Regnery, Mark Stradley, Dean Stradley, and the NPI Staff. The methodology is described in a footnote.Using 2010 as the base reference the big gainer in the population derby will be blacks or sub-Sahara Africans. This group will expand almost 133% to 2.7 billion by 2060. By themiddle of this century blacks will represent 25.38% of world population which is updramatically from the 8.97% they recorded in 1950.The other groups measured in the study were the Central Asians (Indians), East Asians(Chinese and Japanese), the Southeast Asians, Arabic (North Africa and the Middle East)and Amerindian-Mestizo (Mexican and Central America). All these groups willexperience a population growth. The Chinese/Japanese and Indians will trade rankingsand the relative global presence of the other groups will remain more or less constant.The big population story of the 21st Century is shaping up to be the status reversal of whites and blacks and the Indian baby boom. A side bar will be the single digit minorityrole that whites will assume. Of the 7 population groups studied only whites are projected to sustain an absolute decline in numbers.In 1950 whites and blacks were respectively 27.98% and 8.97% of world population. By2060 these figures will almost reverse as blacks surge to 25.38% and whites shrink to9.76%. From 2010 the white population will decline while blacks will add 1.2 billion totheir numbers. In this time frame the the Indian subcontinent will gain 1.2 billion people.
