In the last four decades, the United States has undergone significant demographic changes. Immigration patterns have altered our racial composition, medical advances have aged our population, and economic forces have driven us to educate ourselves at unprecedented levels. Transformations of this magnitude will shape this century’s social and political landscape, as well as test many of our society’s institutions.

BPC, in partnership with the Center for American Progress and the Brookings Institution, hosted a series of presentations and discussions on the third-year results of the States of Change project. This project’s results include the composition of different groups’ under- or over-representation in the electorate, projections through 2060, and ways in which political actors must confront demographic reality.
