As the U.S. approaches the tipping point of the IPI Countdown Clock, many States have preceded the nation and have already crossed 50% on the Interethnic Proximity Indexsm. The IPI Countdown Clock above represents Rhode Island, the next State on target to cross 50% into majority multi-ethnic and multi-racial influence on December 28, 2025 at 6:40 am EDT.
Metropolitan areas are crossing the 50% mark on the Interethnic Proximity Indexsm much more quickly than the States and nation.

Detroit-Warren-Dearborn is the next Metro area on target to cross 50% on June 29, 2023 at 4:11 pm EDT and is represented on the IPI Countdown Clock above.
