WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. racial minorities accounted for roughly 85% of the nation's population growth over the last decade — one of the largest shares ever — with Hispanics accounting for much of the gain in many of the states picking up new House seats.

Preliminary census estimates also suggest the number of multiracial Americans jumped roughly 20% since 2000, to over 5 million.
The findings, based on fresh government survey data, offer a glimpse into 2010 census results that are being released on a state-by-state basis beginning this week. New Jersey, Mississippi, Virginia and Louisiana are the first to receive the census redistricting data, which will be used in the often contentious process of redrawing political districts based on population and racial makeup.

Mega props to Prince William County for having a five percent biracial population. The rest of Northern VA aren't doing too bad neither.

I think most of that Hispanic growth was 2000-06, it seems to have slowed down a lot since the recession hit in late '07.
