Seventeen percent of all weddings performed in 2015 were interracial, up from 7 percent in 1980. In 2015, 18 percent of new marriages in metropolitan areas were interracial, compared with 11 percent of newlyweds outside of metropolitan areas. That’s a finding from a new report from the Pew Research Center looking at the state of interracial marriage today.
