An article in the Houston Chronicle suggests that the social and demographic shifts taking place today in the state of Texas are early indications to what we should expect in the rest of the US in the future.

Hispanic Trending points to an article in the Houston Chronicle that suggests that the social and demographic shifts taking place today in the state of Texas are early indications to what we should expect in the rest of the US in the future. The paper says:

Texas will have about two Hispanics for every Anglo, according to state demographer Steve Murdock. Blacks will make up 8 percent to 10 percent of the population, Asians and other ethnic groups 6 percent to 8 percent.

In Texas, Hispanic and black children are about three times more likely to live in poverty than Anglos. They also are more likely to lag in educational achievement, a key indicator of potential income.
