Salt Lake City and Utah Grow More Diverse

Long a majority-white city, Salt Lake City is gradually becoming more diverse.

Hispanic and Asian populations are growing in the state, especially in Salt Lake City, its largest urban center.

"The changes are more apparent among the young: almost one in four Utah residents under 18 is a minority.

The Census numbers show about 10,000 more Hispanics in the state than demographers had estimated.

Still, whites who are not Hispanic account for more than half the state's overall growth of 24% to 2.8 million. The Hispanic population grew 78% to more than 358,000."
