Intermarriage: Trends and Attitudes

Rates of intermarriage have risen in the United States, but trends differ markedly for different race and ethnic groups, according to a new Pew Research Center report that makes extensive use of U.S. Census Bureau data. Among blacks and Asians, there also are notable variations by gender.

The new report also includes a discussion of geographic variations in intermarriage patterns, and an interactive map displays data for states and regions. The report also includes a section on public opinion about intermarriages.
