More U.S. Married Families are Interracial or Interethnic

According to a report from the United States Census Bureau, the percentage of married-couple households that are interracial or interethnic in the U.S. grew from 7.4% in 2000 to 10.2% during the span of 2012-2016. This growth varied by state and for specific interracial/interethnic combination types—seven of which were identified in the data. The largest of these is non-Hispanic whites married to Hispanics, which increased in 43.2 percent of counties. Two states, Hawaii and Oklahoma, and the District of Columbia, held the most growth.
