Demography is the study of human population statistics. The United States Census Bureau has measured the demographics of the U.S. population since 1790. Why? The main purpose was for division of representatives of the people in government and for taxes. As time has gone on, it gives us a better picture of who we are as a nation and how to better plan for the future as the demographic landscape of the U.S. changes. The 2016 presidential contest is perhaps one of the most interesting snapshots of this changing American landscape. The intersection of voting tendencies and voting likelihood among different demographic groups will almost certainly lead to a very tightly contested presidential race.
