A changing world…

We all know our world is changing, but do you realize how quickly these changes are taking place?

  • The world’s population will reach 7 billion before the end of 2011 (United Nations)
  • Since 1960 the U.S. population has increased by 72% (National Geographic)
  • Racial and ethnic minorities accounted for 83% of U.S. population growth from 2000 to 2008, and these minorities will become the majority by 2042 (Brookings Institute)
  • The Muslim population in the U.S. will more than double to reach an anticipated 6.2 million in the coming years. (Pew Research, January 27, 2011)
