Interracial dating percentage by state
Working through these differences can be challenging.
Just 55 percent of the city’s 115,000 residents are white, the black population has risen 10 percent since 2000, and the Hispanic population — confined largely to the city’s south side — has tripled in the last decade. “You always see interracial couples here,” said Brokaw, who is white and has two biracial children.
In 2002, the Center for Disease Control published statistics about divorce rates that showed interracial marriages were more likely to end in divorce than same-ethnic marriages — 41 percent versus 31 percent.
Interracial couples may grapple with different cultural assumptions and expectations so integrated into their lives that they’re not aware of them on top of all the usual marriage adjustments and stresses.
“Intra-marriage” and “marrying in” refer to marriages between spouses of the same race or ethnicity.
“Newly married” or “newlyweds” refer to couples who got married in the past 12 months prior to the survey date (American Community Survey).
