The Black population in the United States has experienced significant growth from 2002 to 2022, witnessing a 32 percent increase, equivalent to 11 million people.

According to a research study conducted by the Pew Research Center, the total Black population in the country now stands at almost 48 million.
The study reveals that the general fertility rate for Black females aged 15-44 was 6.1 percent in 2022.

Several factors contribute to the growth of the Black population, including a rise in birth rates among Black women and an increase in interracial marriages, a growing number of mixed-race individuals choosing to identify as Black, and a notable influx of immigrants from African and Caribbean countries.
