These intermarriage rates have changed little since 1980.

In 2015 the likelihood of marrying someone of a different race or ethnicity was somewhat higher among newlyweds with at least some college experience than among those with a high school diploma or less.

By comparison, in 1980, the first year for which detailed data are available, about 230,000 newlyweds had done so.

The long-term annual growth in newlyweds marrying someone of a different race or ethnicity has led to dramatic increases in the overall number of people who are presently intermarried – including both those who recently married and those who did so years, or even decades, earlier.

As is the case among whites, intermarriage is about equally common for newlywed Hispanic men and women.

In 2015, 26% of recently married Hispanic men were married to a non-Hispanic, as were 28% of their female counterparts.

Even though intermarriage has not been increasing for these two groups, they remain far more likely than black or white newlyweds to marry someone of a different race or ethnicity. Among the half of Hispanic newlyweds who are immigrants, 15% married a non-Hispanic. At the same time, the share of white newlyweds declined by 15 points and the share of black newlyweds held steady.

About three-in-ten Asian newlyweds (29%) have a spouse of a different race or ethnicity. For newly married Hispanics and Asians, the likelihood of intermarriage is closely related to whether they were born in the U. The size of each racial and ethnic group can also influence intermarriage rates by affecting the pool of potential marriage partners in the “marriage market,” which consists of all newlyweds and all unmarried adults combined.

A significant gender gap in intermarriage is apparent among Asian newlyweds as well, though the gap runs in the opposite direction: Just over one-third (36%) of Asian newlywed women have a spouse of a different race or ethnicity, while 21% of Asian newlywed men do.
