America by the Numbers with Maria Hinojosa Full Episode Guide

  • Learn how Asian American, Black Millennial, Arab American and Latino Evangelical voters are exerting their growing strength and influence in this 2016 election special about power and politics, demographics and democracy.

  • With a collective purchasing power of $3 trillion, people of color are quickly becoming the nation's most sought-after consumers. Iconic brands are re-examining their marketing strategies in order to stay competitive in the changing marketplace. Latinos, with a buying power of $1.2 trillion, are at the heart of this new consumer focus. We take an exclusive look inside LatinWorks, one of the most successful multicultural ad agencies in the country, and learn how they are speaking to the multicultural millennial market.

  • The U.S. spends more on healthcare than any other nation yet it ranks 56th lowest in the world for infant mortality. ABTN visits Rochester, New York - where babies are dying at a rate two times higher than the national average, and where mothers of color are three times more likely than white mothers to lose their babies before their first birthday.

  • Often referred to as the "model minority," Asian Americans are the best-educated and highest-income ethnic group in the U.S. But Southeast Asian Americans have some of the lowest high school completion rates in the nation. ABTN visits Long Beach, California to find out why this educational crisis is happening and what people are doing about it.

  • ABTN returns to Clarkston, Georgia to document a remarkable moment in the city's history; three Mayoral and City Council candidates are former refugees who will be running for local office — and voting — for the first time. Will they be able to bring new voters to the polls and make their voices heard?

  • The Bakken Oil Boom is bringing billions of dollars and tens of thousands of jobs to North Dakota; a substantial part of oil production is concentrated on Fort Berthold Reservation. The oil wells have also brought danger — organized crime, drugs — and other problems.

  • American suburbs are becoming more diverse, but the “exurbs” that surround them remain overwhelmingly white. Coeur d’Alene, Idaho — a town that successfully ousted the Aryan Nations in 2000 - remains over 94% white. ABTN explores both the allure and the complexity of living in a homogenous community.

  • Pacific Islanders serve in the U.S. military in disproportionally high numbers, and have suffered the highest casualty rates in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. ABTN visits Guam, a U.S. territory in the Pacific, to speak to some of the island’s veterans to explore why Guam’s returning veterans say they can’t get the health care they need.

  • Welcome to Clarkston, Georgia — one of America’s most diverse square miles. Designated a refugee resettlement site in the '80s, the city is home to people from over 40 different countries. ABTN examines how daily realities reflect wider demographic trends, and explores the collaborations/collisions that are occurring between the old/new South.
