Colorado has a population today that is more diverse now than what it had been in the past decade. The changes are noticeable among the young people, especially as per latest Census Bureau figures. For instance, those who are of white ethnicity used to form 75 percent of the population of the state. That fell to 70 percent over the last decade. Hispanics now fill this gap whose population has risen from 17 to 21 percent.
The relative representation of the Asian and black residents in the state has increased as well. About 58 of the 64 counties in the state have a proportion of white residents. People are multiracial, have also increased in the state in the last decade. The proportion of white residents has fallen in a majority of the counties in the state. Diversity in the state is a common outcome of urbanization as per most demography experts. The census figures across the different counties showcase how the population has been changing as well as housing data. The numbers show how the congressional districts are bounded and the services that the governments allocate to the residents. The data are influenced by transportation funding, how the governments and cities have their community planning structured.
Colorado has the fastest growth in the Front Range communities. These are along the Interstate 70 and south or north of the metro area of Denver. These areas have seen the largest population boom in the state. For instance, El Paso County, where Colorado Springs is founded, is the most populous county in the state. There are about 620,000 residents here. However, the most pronounced changes are in the ethnic and racial makeup of the state.
