Frost Illustrated – Currently, the black population stands at 46.3 million, up about 1.3 percent from the previous year. The Census Bureau identifies individuals as black, even if they list black and another race on the survey.
Census officials project that the black population will increase to 74.5 million by July 1, 2060 and, on that date, African-Americans will account for 17.9 percent of the nation’s total population.
