Richard Easterlin, an economist who has researched economic growth in the United States, explains the growth pattern of American population in the 20th century through fertility rate fluctuations and the decreasing mortality rate. [6][7] In addition, before 1865, the overwhelming majority of African Americans were slaves. London: Printed for Lockyer Davis, in Holborn, Printer to the Royal Society, 1772. Estimated Population of American Colonies 1620 to 1780 From the Beginning of the Great Migration Through the Revolutionary War. They nearly all used English Common Law as their basic code of law and, except for the French, Dutch and Germans, spoke some dialect of English. From 1831 to 1840 immigration increased greatly, to 599,000 total, as 207,000 Irish, even before the famine of 1845-49, started to emigrate in large numbers as Britain eased travel restrictions. Bad times in Europe drove people out; land, relatives, freedom, opportunity, and jobs in America lured them in. In 1965, U.S. immigration law changes reduced the emphasis on national origin. The French were mostly Huguenots. However, the percentage of the Hispanic/Latino population has dramatically increased in many U.S. states both inside and outside the Southwest in recent decades. The Colonial Period of Immigration History. Population from US 1790 Census, The Total is the total immigration over the approximately 130-year span of colonial existence of the U.S. colonies as found in the 1790 census. From 1841 to 1850 immigration exploded to 1,713,000 total immigrants and at least 781,000 Irish who fled their homeland to escape poverty or death during the famine of 1845-1849. This ratio depends on the economic stability of the country in which they live and how people are raised to value material objects. [5] The United States historically had few Hispanics, Asians, and Native Americans, especially before the late twentieth century. a^ There are other estimates on this page which are a little different. Americas Society Art Gallery. Canada in the 1790s, often referred to as "Late Loyalists." During the American colonial period, British colonial officials conducted censuses in some of the Thirteen Colonies that included enumerations by race. Approximately half of this population is estimated to have been of American origin. They were mostly not political refugees but went for generous land grants and taxes 75 percent lower than in the United States. "A census-based count of the Civil War Dead.". By 1776, about 85% of the white population in the British colonies was of English, Irish, Scottish, or Welsh descent, with 9% of German origin and 4% Dutch. [41] By 2060, Hispanic Americans are projected to account for about one-third of the total U.S. This situ… The total white population in 1790 was about 80% of British ancestry, and would go on to roughly double by natural increase every 25 years. From about 1675 onward, the native-born population of what would become the United States would never again drop below 85% of the total. These settlers were of about 60% German and 33% English extraction. By 1780 about 27% of New York's population were descendants of Dutch settlers (55,000 of 204,000). The ancestry of the 3.9 million population in 1790 has been estimated from various sources by sampling last names in the 1790 census and assigning them a country of origin. Prob… In addition, many people were sent to America against their will—convicts, political prisoners, and enslaved Africans.

The Colonial Population The population of the American colonies through the 18th century was primarily a mixture of immigrants from different countries in Europe and slaves from Africa. North America in the decades before the Revolution. By 1850, this had shifted to about 90% native-born. COLONIES, DISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH IN (ISSUE) By studying the way wealth was distributed in the American colonies, we can learn a great deal about their economy, like the relationship of the social structure to economic opportunity. [9], Whites (including Non-Hispanic Whites) have historically made up the overwhelming majority (usually between eighty and ninety percent) of the total United States population. It continued to rise throughout the 1940s to reach 3.10 in 1950 with a peak of 3.77 in 1957. The "relative income" theory suggests that couples choose to have children based on a couple's ratio of potential earning power and the desire to obtain material objects. Emigration to the New England colonies after 1640 and the start of the English Civil War decreased to less than 1% (about equal to the death rate) in nearly all years before 1845.

These colonies eventually formed a nation that … c^ Data on race from the 2000 and 2010 U.S. Censuses are not directly comparable with those from the 1990 census and previous censuses due, in large part, to giving respondents the option to report more than one race. In 1848, the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, concluding the Mexican War, extended U.S. citizenship to approximately 60,000 Mexican residents of the New Mexico Territory and 10,000 living in California. "The demographic history of colonial New England. Stout, Harry S. "The New England Soul: Preaching and Religious Culture in Colonial New England." The statistics were generated by social historians working during the 1960s and 70s who focused on counting whatever they could to give a quantitative portrait of America. [9][10] Due to the Great Migration, many large cities outside of the former Confederacy (such as New York City, Chicago, Detroit, and Cleveland) experienced huge increases in the African American percentage of their total population. Chadwick Bruce A. and Tim B. Heaton, eds. The combined taxed and non-taxed Native American population in the United States was 339,421 in 1860, 313,712 in 1870, and 306,543 in 1880. [5], The eastern and northern frontier around the initial New England settlements was mainly settled by the Yankee descendants of the original New Englanders. The Black proportion has declined since the 1990s due to gentrification and expanding opportunities, with many Blacks moving to Texas, Georgia, Florida, and Maryland and others migrating to jobs in states of the New South in a reverse of the Great Migration.[23]. By the 1970s, most immigrants to the U.S. came from Latin America or Asia, rather than Europe. The extent of colonial settlements by 1800 is shown by this map from the University of Texas map collection. During the American colonial period, British colonial officials conducted censuses in some of the Thirteen Colonies that included enumerations by race. Total spending on Native Americans averaged $38 million a year in the late 1920s, dropping to a low of $23 million in 1933, and returning to $38 million in 1940.[28]. Daniel Scott Smith, "The demographic history of colonial New England.". Nearly all non Native American commercial activity was run in small privately owned businesses with good credit both at home and in England being essential since they were often cash poor. IQ differences both within and between races also play a factor. The table below shows the percentage of free Blacks as a percentage of the total Black population in various U.S. regions and U.S. states between 1790 and 1860 (the blank areas on the chart below mean that there is no data for those specific regions or states in those specific years). [5] Most Asian Americans[5] historically lived in the western United States. As of 2002, 4.3% of men and 18.1% of women aged 20 are married, increasing to 37% of men and 52% of women by age 25, and then 61% of men and 76% of women by age 30. [8], All the colonies grew mostly by natural growth, with foreign born populations rarely exceeding 10%. Most settlements were nearly independent of trade with Britain as most grew or made nearly everything they needed—the average cost of imports for most households was only about 5-15 English pounds per year. Most non-white babies of non-Hispanic white mothers are either Hispanic or black, and non-Hispanic black mothers occasionally have Hispanic children. Hawes Joseph M. and Elizabeth I. Nybakken, eds.

In addition, tax lists and other reports provided additional data and information about the racial demographics of the Thirteen Colonies during this time period. Roughly 12 million Africans were forcibly transported to Europe, Asia, the Caribbean, and the Americas between 1500 and 1900. North America covers an area of about 24,709,000 square kilometers (9,540,000 square miles), about 16.5% of the Earth's land area and about 4.8% of its total surface. [1] The Native American Indian population inside territorial U.S. 1790 boundaries was less than 100,000. . They were mostly farmers and settled in small villages for common religious activity. The "relative income" theory explains the Baby Boom by suggesting that the late 1940s and 1950s brought low desires to have material objects, as a result of the Great Depression and WWII, as well as huge job opportunities, because of it being a post war period. - Canada, Ir - Iraq, Pa - Pakistan. Haines, Michael R. and Richard H. Steckel (eds.). Most settlements were created by complete family groups with several generations often present. b^ While all Native Americans in the United States were only counted as part of the (total) U.S. population since 1890, the U.S. Census Bureau previously either enumerated or made estimates of the non-taxed Native American population (which was not counted as a part of the U.S. population before 1890) for the 1860–1880 time period. By 1790 the ancestry question was starting to become irrelevant to many, as intermarriage from different ethnic groups was becoming common, causing people to form a common American identity. [2][13][14], a^ These population estimates include a small number of Native Americans/Indians as part of the Black/Negro population throughout this time period (1610–1780). [13] Even the very high birth rate may not account for all of the nine-fold increase from 230,000 to 2.1 million. During the colonial period, Native Americans had a complicated relationship with European settlers. Although religious and cultural prescriptions stressed respect for the elderly and emphasized intergenerational familial obligations during the colonial and post-Revolutionary periods, grandparents, particularly grandfathers, exercised economic and social control primarily through their ownership of land in an agricultural society. However, much like Texas, the Mexican government had encouraged immigration and settlement of these regions from groups in the United States and Europe. By 1784 all slavery in the New England states was either completely prohibited or transitioning to its total prohibition. - El Salvador, J. From the turn of the 18th century through the Revolution, the arrival of minority immigrant populations including the Dutch, Germans, Scots, Scotch-Irish, Swedes, Irish and Africans imported as slaves, have helped to shape identity of America.

When colonists came to North America as a part of a British mercantilist policy, British institutions were transplanted to the new world along with them. New Jersey and Delaware had a majority of British with 20% German-descended colonists, about a 6% black population, and a small contingent of Swedish descendants of New Sweden. [40] In December 2012, the U.S. Census Bureau projected that 2043 would be the year in which the U.S. would become a majority minority nation, with no single ethnic classification constituting a majority of the population. The regions marked * were part of Great Britain. the Colonial period, and several of the states took one or more censuses during the Continental period. On the other hand, all children born to Hispanic mothers, even if the mothers are white Hispanic, are counted as Hispanic. South Sudan was calculated in Sub-Saharan Africa. [11][12] The Hispanic and Asian population of the United States has rapidly increased in the late twentieth and twenty-first centuries, and the African American percentage of the U.S. population is slowly increasing as well since reaching a low point of less than ten percent in 1930. The 1790 population reflected the approximate 50,000 "Loyalists" who had emigrated to Canada during and at the end of the American Revolution, 7-10,000 of whom went to the United Kingdom and 6,000 to the Caribbean. Nearly all of these enumerations were more than a simple numbering of the people; in some instances, the inhabitants were classified by race, sex, age, and marital condition.

The total U.S. Catholic population in 1790 is estimated at 40,000 or 1.6%, perhaps a low count due to prejudice. [5] The Great Migration throughout the twentieth century (starting from World War I)[5][6] resulted in more than six million African Americans leaving the Southern U.S. (especially rural areas) and moving to other parts of the United States (especially to urban areas) due to the greater economic/job opportunities, less anti-black violence/lynchings,[8] and a smaller amount of segregation/discrimination there.
