Young Adults in US—Foreign-born population doubles; less employment and higher poverty rates compared to prior generation of young adults.
The percentage of young adults today who are foreign born has more than doubled since 1980 (15 percent versus 6 percent).
All states have higher proportions of foreign-born young adults than 30 years ago.
One in four young adults, or 17.9 million, speaks a language other than English at home. That proportion is higher still in New York, New Jersey, Texas, New Mexico and Nevada (where it is about one in three) but is highest in California (where it is about one in two).
More millennials are living in poverty today, and they have lower rates of employment, compared with their counterparts in 1980.
Prior generations of young adults were more likely to have ever served in the armed services.
One in five young adults lives in poverty (13.5 million people), up from one in seven (8.4 million people) in 1980.

The real median income of Hispanic households increased by 3.5 percent between 2012 and 2013.
Real median incomes in 2013 for family households ($65,587) and nonfamily households ($31,178) did not rise from the levels in 2012.
(FemiSex Translation: things got better for Hispanics, but it was stagnation for the non-Hispanic population.)
A comparison of real median household income over the past six years shows that income is 8.0 percent lower than in 2007.
(FemiSex translation—Under six LONG years of Obama presidency, our income has declined by almost 10%!)
In 2013, 5.8 percent of married-couple families, 30.6 percent of families with a female householder and 15.9 percent of families with a male householder lived in poverty.
For married-couple families, both the poverty rate and the number in poverty decreased.
(For unmarried households: things remained bleak):
Neither the poverty rates nor the estimates of the number of families in poverty showed any statistically significant change between 2012 and 2013 for other types of families.
(FemiSex translation: don’t want to live in poverty: get married. From majority of data: Really don’t want to live in poverty: get married and graduate high school before you have kids. Really really don’t want to live in poverty: have only the number of children you can afford to rear.)
African-born US population explodes
The foreign-born population from Africa has grown rapidly in the United States during the last 40 years, increasing from about 80,000 in 1970 to about 1.6 million in the period from 2008 to 2012.
Metropolitan areas with the largest African-born populations were New York (212,000), Washington (161,000), Atlanta (68,000), Los Angeles (68,000), Minneapolis-St. Paul (64,000), Dallas-Fort Worth (61,000) and Boston (60,000).
Number of unmarried men 18 and older for every 100 unmarried women in the United States in 2013.
Percentage of voters in the 2012 presidential election who were unmarried, compared to 24 percent of voters in the 1972 presidential election.
Percentage of voters in the 2010 November congressional election who were unmarried.
(FemiSex translation: hence the Dems immoral push for more unmarried adults with children in our population, which is horrific considering that such folks will likely live in poverty and be indentured to the state to survive, but who vote Democrat so they can grab onto other people’s money. It’s no mistake that these results are presented to show that if unmarrieds don’t show up for elections, things go badly for Dems.)
