S.-born Asian Pacific American women took White husbands during the year of publication.
In contrast, 20.1% of white women married a black man, while just 9.4% married an Asian man.
A slightly higher proportion of white women than white men married a Hispanic person (51% versus 46%), and a similar share of each gender married someone in the other group. S.-raised are much more likely to be married to Whites than their non-U. Of all the Asian American groups studied, Indian Americans showed the highest rates of endogamy, with the overwhelming majority of Indian American women and men marrying Indian American partners.
The table shows that among whites who out-married in 2008, there were different patterns by gender in the race of their spouses.
More than a quarter of white men (26.9%) married an Asian woman, and about 6.9% married a black woman.
However, a 2009 study a year later by Yaunting Zhang and Jennifer Van Hook on behalf of Journal of Marriage and Family using a larger sample size than the previous study produced different results with Asian female/White male marriages shown as the least likely to divorce of any marriage pairing.
This data comes from Table 3 Model 4 of the Zhang paper, which incorporates all controls into the model.
Interracial marriage in the United States has been fully legal in all U. states since the 1967 Supreme Court decision that deemed anti-miscegenation laws unconstitutional, with many states choosing to legalize interracial marriage at earlier dates.
Multiracial Americans numbered 9.0 million in 2010, or 2.9% of the total population, but 5.6% of the population under age 18.
a pairing between a black husband and white wife is 1.62 times more likely to divorce than a pairing between a white husband and white wife.
The number of interracial marriages has steadily continued to increase since the 1967 Supreme Court ruling in Loving v.
Virginia, but also continues to represent an absolute minority among the total number of wed couples.
