Roughly 12 million Africans were forcibly transported to Europe, Asia, the Caribbean, and the Americas between 1500 and 1900. The total U.S. Catholic population in 1790 is estimated at 40,000 or 1.6%, perhaps a low count due to prejudice. They resisted the efforts of the Europeans to gain more of their land and control through both warfare and diplomacy.But problems arose for the Native Americans, which held them back from their goal, including new diseases, the slave trade, and the ever-growing European population in North America. a^ There were no Blacks at all—either free or enslaved—in South Dakota in 1860. [5] From at least 1790 until the start of World War I, the overwhelming majority (around ninety percent) of African Americans[5] lived in the southern United States. The rest were mostly English with a mixture of other Europeans and about 6% Blacks. By 1804 all slavery in the Middle colonies (except Delaware [6.6% Black]) was either completely prohibited or was transitioning to its total prohibition. Secondary Sources. - El Salvador, J. This pattern would continue throughout U.S. history. The natural increase is slightly smaller than shown for non-Hispanic whites and slightly different for non-Hispanic blacks because the birth figures shown refer to mothers of that race, not the children.

The Native American Indian population inside territorial U.S. 1790 boundaries was less than 100,000. The U.S. population in 1900 was 76 million. The main reason was that it was not a homogeneous nation. Divining America: Religion in American History. The main feature of the economy in Virginia, Maryland and South Carolina was large plantations growing staples for export, especially tobacco and rice. Many Southern U.S. states historically had African Americans compose 35% or more of their total population(s), with three of them (Louisiana, Mississippi, and South Carolina) even having an African American majority at certain periods in their history. Susan B. Carter, Scott Sigmund Gartner, Michael R. Haines, and Alan L. Olmstead, eds. The New England colonists included some educated men as well as many skilled farmers, tradesmen and craftsmen. Lois Green Carr, and Philip D. Morgan, eds. [21] By 2011, migration levels were at the lowest level since World War II, and were in the longest period of continuous decline in the twentieth century. The first significant Catholic immigration started in the mid-1840s. The black (African American) population was non-existent to European regions in 1610, but awareness increased rapidly after 1620 when forced slavery of Africans was implemented building the transatlantic slave trade in the 15th century in colonial areas, Caribbean islands which later became parts of the United States.

[13] Even the very high birth rate may not account for all of the nine-fold increase from 230,000 to 2.1 million. This resulted in lower fertility rates, causing the Baby Bust. 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. In addition, tax lists and other reports provided additional data and information about the racial demographics of the Thirteen Colonies during this time period. The Colonial Period of Immigration History. However only half stayed permanently. Much of rural America has seen steady population decline since 1920. [citation needed], The number of children under 19 rose to 69 million in 1960 from 51 million in 1950, a 35.3% increase, while the proportion of the population rose to 38.8% up from 33.8% in 1950. In the early years of the United States, immigration average about 6,000 people per year, including French refugees from the slave revolt in Haiti. 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. "Premarital pregnancy in America 1640-1971: An overview and interpretation. After 1820 immigration gradually increased. After Christopher Columbus’ historic voyage in 1492, Spain dominated the race to establish colonies in the Americas, while English efforts, such as the “lost colony” of Roanoke, met with failure. It continued to rise throughout the 1940s to reach 3.10 in 1950 with a peak of 3.77 in 1957. Colonial Beach Demographics. [7], From 1717 to 1775 the western frontier was populated primarily by Presbyterian settlers who migrated from Scotland and Ireland. The total fertility rate of the United States jumped from 2.49 in 1945 to 2.94 in 1946, a rise of 0.45 children therefore beginning the baby boom. 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. Many of the colonists, especially from the New England colonies, were already into their fifth generation of being in America. 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. Since the men who came back got jobs in the workplace again, married women stayed home to take care of the house and children and let their husbands be the breadwinner of the household. 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. Frontier settlers initially landed in Philadelphia or Baltimore before migrating to the western frontier for the cheaper land. Latin America is a group of countries from the Americas, comprised of countries scattered across North America, South America, Central America and the Caribbean.The countries are characterized by their use of the Romance languages Spanish, French, Creole and Portuguese.

The 1965 law directed that those with relatives in the U.S. or employer sponsorship now had priority. Elsewhere[14] the number given is 51,000 (80,000 in total less 29,000 Welsh). New England's healthy climate (the cold winters killed mosquitoes and other disease-bearing insects), and abundant food supply resulted in the lowest death rate and highest birth rate of any place in the world (marriage was expected and birth control was not, and a much higher than average number of children and mothers survived). 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.

The first permanent British settlement in Colonial America was established in 1607, at Jamestown, in what is now Virginia. [5], The eastern and northern frontier around the initial New England settlements was mainly settled by the Yankee descendants of the original New Englanders. [citation needed]. One interesting case is when the European immigrants, from various origins, mixed together (for example in New-Orleans, Canada, but also Algeria). In addition, many people were sent to America against their will—convicts, political prisoners, and enslaved Africans. During the colonial period, Native Americans had a complicated relationship with European settlers. 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. Following this period, the next generation had a greater desire for material objects; however, an economic slowdown in the United States made jobs harder to acquire. [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. Total immigration for the year 1820 was 8,385, gradually building to 23,322 by 1830, with 143,000 total immigrating during the decade.

Nearly all colonies and, later, states in the United States were settled by migration from another colony or state, as foreign immigration usually only played a minor role after first initial settlements were established. New Hampshire did not start reporting Hispanic origin until 1993, and Oklahoma until 1991, so data from those states are excluded before then. [41] By 2060, Hispanic Americans are projected to account for about one-third of the total U.S. These settlers were of about 60% German and 33% English extraction. These two factors gave rise to a high relative income, which encouraged high fertility.
