History of interracial dating
American Indians have the highest interracial marriage rate among all single-race groups.Women are slightly more likely to “marry out” than men in this group: 61% of American Indian female newlyweds married outside their race, compared with 54% of American Indian male newlyweds.The major shift in attitudes about such unions, however, is a telling indicator of the general shift in views of racial matters on many fronts in the U. All respondents had previously been interviewed in the Gallup Daily tracking survey. For results based on this sample of national adults, one can say with 95% confidence that the margin of error is ±2 percentage points.The total sample is weighted to represent racial and ethnic groups proportionately to their share of the U. For results based on sample of 2,149 non-Hispanic whites, the margin of sampling error is ±3 percentage points.In 2014, 37% of Americans said having more people of different races marrying each other was a good thing for society, up from 24% four years earlier.Only 9% in 2014 said this trend was a bad thing for society, and 51% said it doesn’t make much difference.
Among newlyweds in 2013, 37% of Asian women married someone who was not Asian, while 16% of Asian men married outside of their race.The poll surveyed 4,373 Americans, including 1,010 non-Hispanic blacks.Approval of marriages between blacks and whites is up one percentage point from 2011, when this attitude was last measured.Fully a quarter of black men who got married in 2013 married someone who was not black.Only 12% of black women married outside of their race.
