Households by Race and Hispanic Origin in 2015

Overall household growth was sluggish between 2014 and 2015, but that's because the number of non-Hispanic White households fell by more than 200,000—an 0.2 percent decline. In contrast, the number of households headed by Blacks (alone or in combination) grew 2.8 percent, as did the number headed by Asians (alone or in combination). Hispanic households increased just 0.9 percent. Here is the number (and percent distribution) of households in 2015 by race and Hispanic origin...

Households in 2015 by race and Hispanic origin
Total: 124,587,000 (100.0%)
Asian: 6,333,000 (5.1%)
Black: 17,198,000 (13.8%)
Hispanic: 16,239,000 (13.0%)
Non-Hispanic White: 84,228,000 (67.6%)

Note: Numbers do not add to total because Asians and Blacks are those who identify themselves as being of the race alone or in combination. Hispanics may be of any race.
