The changing face of the U.S.
Over the next three decades, the racial profile of the United States will change dramatically, moving the Anglo/white majority population to less than 50%. How might the changing U.S. demographics affect your patterns of doing business, your associations, your customers, your community, your friendships? The map below outlines those projected shifts in population, decade by decade, giving us a glimpse at the nation’s complexion into 2040.

Currently, 34% of the country consists of people of color. Is 34% of your Rolodex people of color? How representative of these numbers are your circles of association?
