These pie charts show the racial and ethnic changes in Texas' population from the 1990 to the 2000 census. Overall, in raw numbers Texas' population is rapidly growing across all groups. As a proportion of the total population, however, some groups, notably whites, are shrinking rapidly while other groups, notably Hispanics, are growing rapidly. As of 2000 whites constituted about 71% of Texans, down from just more than 75% in 1990. Hispanics, on the other hand, now constitute about one third of Texans, up from about 25% in 1990. Demographers project that this trend will continue rapidly so that within a few decades Hispanics will be a majority in Texas.
