Sailer's lies on white birth rates by state
Bush carried the 19 states with the highest white fertility (just as he did in 2000), and 25 out of the top 26, with highly unionized Michigan being the one blue exception to the rule. (The least prolific red states are West Virginia, North Dakota, and Florida.)
In sharp contrast, Kerry won the 16 states at the bottom of the list, with the Democrats' anchor states of California (1.65) and New York (1.72) having quite infertile whites.
While right/white wingers were spreading Sailer's statistics across internet blogs, they never bothered to analyze the validity of his data. To prove Sailer lied about white birth rates statistics, email him and ask to see the exact original data and URL. If he had the data, he should have no problems showing you. However, Sailer will not reply because he does not have it; it was a lie and false fabrication all this time.
We recently posted an entry showing there was never any, or marginal at best, corelation for red states to carry higher white birth rates. Someone mentioned they were total white births, so we will show white birth rates by state statistics to prove Sailer is wrong. Source is from www.statehealthfacts.org and calculations of birth rates are listed below the table.
|. .||Sailer's bogus|
|State||White Birth Rate||State||White Birth Rate|
|South Carolina||13.45||South Carolina||1.80|
Birth rates from www.statehealthfacts.org are the total white births times 1000 divided by the total white population of the state.
White Birth Rate = (3) / ( (1) * (2 in percentage) ) * 1000
